11 March 2016

According to the Latvian Commercial Law, all capital companies (SIA – Limited Liability Company, AS – Join Stock Company) and cooperative societies until 30 June 20161 should submit to the Commercial Register documents of Share capital denomination.

If your company will not submit documents for share capital denomination to euro until the aforementioned date, Enterprise Register will automatically translate to euro share capital registered in the Commercial Register. However, companies will still be obliged to make Share capital denomination2 when they submit to the Commercial Register documents for registration of any other changes. Currently the Enterprise Register processes the documents for share capital denomination free of charge. After 30 June 2016, companies will have to pay state duties for registration of the share capital denomination.

After 30 June 2016, state fee and price for publication in “Latvijas Vēstnesis” will be as follows:

  • SIA – EUR 51.94;
  • AS – EUR 37.71;
