Actul constitutiv al unei companii inregistrate in Azerbaidjan poate fi semnat prin procura (acelasi lucru este valabil si pentru procedurile notariale, un demers impus de lege).

> redactarea tuturor celorlalte documente necesare infiintarii companiei;
Printre acestea se numara: specimenul de semnatura, formulare speciale puse la dispozitie de registrul comertului din Azerbaidjan, copii de pasaport etc.

> planificarea procedurilor notariale (actele necesare infiintarii unei companii in Azerbaidjan trebuie legalizate de catre un notar public)

> oferirea unui sediu social pentru noua companie in Azerbaidjan (daca nu exista deja unul);
Orice adresa poate fi declarata ca fiind sediul firmei. Adresa va fi publica.

> deschiderea unui cont bancar;
Acest pas se refera atat la un cont de capital social, cat si la un cont curent.

> alegerea unui contabil in Azerbaidjan;
Serviciile de contabilitate sunt recomandate pentru orice orice companie inregistrata in Azerbaidjan.

BridgeWest va ofera asistenta pentru infiintarea urmatoarelor tipuri de companii in Azerbaidjan:

> Societate cu raspundere limitata
Acest tip de companie este cea mai raspandita in Azerbaidjan si este destinata activitatilor comerciale. Este potrivita pentru companii mici si mijlocii, putand fi infiintata de un singur asociat. Partenerii contribuie cu parti la capitalul social, cuantumul acestuia fiind decis de catre acestia. Asa cum sugereaza numele, raspunderea asociatilor este limitata la contributia individuala la capitalul social. Partile sociale nu se pot transfera. Partenerii ramasi au posibilitatea de a cumpara partile sociale ale celor care s-au retras.

> Societate pe actiuni de tip deschis
Acest tip de societate este destinata afacerilor la o scara mai larga si poate fi infiintata de unul sau mai multi actionari, fie persoane fizice sau juridice. O societate pe actiuni de tip deschis are un anumit fond impartit in actiuni, detinut de actionari si care trebuie autorizat prin asigurare. Actiunile se pot transfera si tranzactiona catre public. Raspunderea actionarilor pentru datoriile si obligatiile societatii este proportionala cu contributia la capitalul social. Structura de conducere include consiliul de administratie, consiliul de supraveghere si comisia de cenzori, alese in cadrul Adunarii Generale a Actionarilor.

> Societate pe actiuni de tip inchis
Structura sa este similara cu a societatii pe actiuni de tip deschis, avand un consiliu de administratie, iar raspunderea actionarilor este limitata. Poate fi infiintata de una sau mai multe persoane, fizice sau juridice, avand un capital comun impartit in actiuni. Difera de societatea de tip deschis prin aceea ca actiunile nu sunt transferabile si nu se pot vinde catre public.

> Sucursala, filiala sau reprezentanta - Orice companie straina are dreptul sa infiinteze companii de tip sucursala in Azerbaidjan. Acestea pot avea statutul de entitate distincta de compania mama (companii inregistrate in Azerbaidjan in care compania mama este actionar unic) sau extensii ale companiei mama.

Este de retinut faptul ca un cetatean strain trebuie sa furnizeze o document oficial din care sa rezulte implicarea sa intr-o activitate comerciala. Aceasta cerinta este valabila in cazul unor anumite tari.

BridgeWest va ofera de asemenea posibilitatea de a cumpara firme deja infiintate si va poate inregistra ca platitor de TVA.

Va stam la dispozitie pentru informatii suplimentare si tarife.
