LT - Process flow
- Select a company name. It is important to know that it cannot match the other company name or trademark (already existing corporate names, you can check at the Centre of Registers). After selecting the desired company name, you can contact the Register of Legal Entities with a request to reserve a name for 6 months. This means that this time no one else can register the company with the same name, in addition, you will be assured that the company name is available.
- Prepare the founding documents, ie: the Treaty, the Articles of Association and the constituent meeting protocol. Further information on which documents are needed can be found under "Requested documents".
