Bulgaria turnkey solutions in 2023
Healy Consultants shortens the time it takes for our Clients to start operations in Bulgaria by offering turnkey solutions, which include:
- A pre-registered, ready-made LLC;
- An approved and active corporate bank account;
- A pre-registered corporate tax number; and
- A legal registered address.
Within a week, Healy Consultants can supply to our Clients looking to invest in Bulgaria i) the registration number for an existing dormant company and ii) the account number of a corporate bank account already open with a reputable international bank; iii) the company’s tax registration number; and iv) a registered business address.
The name of the already approved corporate bank account is that of the existing ready-made company. To maintain the corporate bank account, the shelf company name cannot be changed. Consequently, our Client must use the existing name of the shelf company for their customers. The business activity of the company is allowed to change. If our Clients wishes to change the shelf company name, the bank will request a new corporate bank account opening application under the new company name;
Who needs this turnkey solution?
These shelf companies with bank accounts are preferred by global entrepreneurs who:
- want immediately to close a deal in Bulgaria;
- prefer to own an aged company;
- need to sign an important contract through a Bulgarian company in a timely manner or;
- invoice a customer on time.
