THE FIRST WOMEN LEADERS FORUM WAS HELD IN AZERBAIJAN
EKVITA, as the main sponsor has organized the “Women Leaders Forum” with the support of sponsor Coca-Cola Azerbaijan. Breaking gender stereotypes in modern culture and the rising role of women in numerous sectors, including business and law, were the topics of two-panel discussions during the event.
The first panel, which addressed the role of women in business, discussed the equal participation right in management, women leaders, and the challenges they face. Panelists with sufficient legal experience in law discussed strengthening the role of women, participation in corporate governance, and state support programs at the second panel.
Furthermore, the forum featured an exhibition of handicrafts made by female members of the “Organization of Disabled Entrepreneurs” Public Union to encourage inclusivity. The second half of the forum ended with a networking dinner accompanied by classical music.
Company (LLC) registration in Azerbaijan (Innovation in registration of an LLC)
As EKVITA, we provide services in multiple areas of law (corporate, labor, migration, tax, litigation, etc.), as well as accounting, audit, business development and accompany our clients starting from early stages of their businesses. In this regard, putting it simply, I would like to speak about “opening the company”. That is, what is the most appropriate organizational form for starting a business in Azerbaijan, its advantages, necessary procedures in the registration process and etc. As you know, there are several organizational forms for the establishment of a company in the legislation. However, today I would like to tell you about the Limited Liability Company (LLC), which is the most acceptable and simple one among the rest in terms of procedural and legal requirements. If we refer to the definition of LLC – a limited liability company means company established by one or more persons (natural persons and (or) legal entity), the charter capital of which is divided into shares, the sizes of which are specified by the charter. As can be seen from mentioned definition, the legislation does not set limits regarding the number of founders of the LLC. In other words, the founder can be one or more persons, including a foreign citizen. It should be noted that in the case of foreign citizens, the legislative or documentation requirements are the same as for Azerbaijani citizens, i.e. there are no additional or special requirements. Another benefit of the LLC is the absence of any restrictions regarding its charter capital in the legislation. In other words, there is no minimum or maximum limit, the charter capital may be settled in any amount. Therefore, in many cases, when establishing the LLC, the charter capital is formed in the amount of 10-100 manats. It also should be noted that the registration process of the LLC is notable for its simplicity, and it would be appropriate to emphasize the innovative policy pursued by the Ministry of Taxes in this sphere. Thanks to it, Azerbaijan has established itself in 9th place in terms of the “Starting a Business” indicator among 190 countries this year, according to the annual Doing Business Report of the World Bank.Powered by Froala Editor
