How to incorporate a company in Lithuania?

Documents and information required for registering a new legal entity in Lithuania:

  • Data about the director, shareholders and board members (if management board is formed): full names, residential addresses and copies of passports.
  • Apostilled or otherwise certified Power of Attorney which authorizes the lawyers of the incorporating firm (if present) to represent the incorporators in the company registration process.
  • Proposed name of the new Lithuanian company.
  • The address of the new Lithuanian company (the address must be in Lithuania).

The steps of incorporating a Lithuanian company vary depending on the company type, however, here are the key steps applicable to all company types with unlikely exceptions:

  • Selecting a name which is not already in use by other Lithuanian company of the same type.
  • Appointing a director. The director does not have to be a Lithuanian citizen or a resident of Lithuania.
  • Forming a management board (not mandatory) – the members are not required to be Lithuanian citizens/residents of Lithuania.
  • Obtaining a Lithuanian address. Lithuanian companies are allowed to operate digitally, therefore, it does not have to be an office space, however, the address must be in Lithuania.
  • Opening a bank account for the share capital (not applicable to the MB company type).
  • Preparing relevant policies and other documentation as per the list above.
  • Registering the company with the Lithuanian Centre of Registers.
