Portuguese Company Registration Process
Procedure to acquire a ready made company
Your chosen directors and shareholders of the new company sign official documents that allow us to make them the directors of your ready made company. We transfer the company into your power and it is ready to trade immediately.
Changing the company name of the Ready Made Company
We can also file a company name change the same day.
Appointing the new Directors
To appoint the directors of your new company you will need to sign official forms that state this. This can also be done through giving us a power of attorney to do this on your behalf.
We will be removed as directors of the company and it will be transferred over to you. You then receive the Certificate of Incorporation , Memorandum and Articles of Association of the company and the Company Secretarial Forms.
