> drafting all other documents required for opening a company in Albania. These documents include: Specimen Signatures, Special Forms provided by the Company Registration Office in Albania, passport copies etc.

> arranging Public Notary procedures (The procedures for incorporating a company in Albania have to be done through an Albanian Public Notary);

> offering a Registered Office in this country for your company opened in Albania (if required). The registered office may be any address where the Albanian company declares to have its headquarters. The registered office of a company opened in Albania will be public.

> setting up a bank account for your Albanian company. This refers both to an initial share capital account as well as a current bank account after the company is formed.
