At Bulgarian Companies Limited, we have an extensive list of Bulgarian ready made companies. As these are pre-existing companies (with the company number already in place and VAT registered) once purchased we can supply company details for immediate use.

The ready made company reduces the waiting periods associated with the incorporation of a company in Bulgaria that takes around a week and VAT registration that takes another two weeks. Buying a ready-made company you also avoid the residency requirements for setting up a new limited company.

Should you buy a ready-made company with an active bank account

A Bulgarian citizen can easily set up a company and open a bank account. The transfer of the company is simple as well. However, when the company is transferred the bank account remains on the name of the previous owner.

This will lead to the bank account being blocked or closed in a relatively short period. It might be smarter to open an account with Revolut, Paysera, Icard or get a Bulgarian residency card.

How to open a bank account of a Bulgarian shelf company?

Since 1st of August 2019 banks in Bulgaria refuse to open company bank accounts unless the director of the company is a resident of Bulgaria. To satisfy compliance requirements you have to apply for Bulgarian residency for EU citizens prior to applying for the opening of a company bank account. On the other hand, applying for Bulgarian residence card is a precondition to qualify for Bulgaria tax residency.

It’s worth highlighting that Bulgarian companies can use Revolut or Paysera accounts and have no Bulgarian bank account.
