Examine the Mandatory Requirements for Greece Company Registration
The general process of Greece company registration starts with deciding the name of the company. Now, when formulating your company’s name, you must draw it from the main business objective of the company or the names of shareholders.

Requirements for Registration
The laws governing the incorporation of a company in Greece stipulated that the notary deed that constitutes the Articles of Association should be signed in front of the Registrar by all the shareholders. The Articles of Association should constitute the following information:
- Identification documents of the founder(s) and shareholder(s), professions, residence and nationalities.
- The name of the company indicating the type of business.
- Registered office and address.
- The objectives of the business.
- The total capital paid up Euro 4, 500 and at least 50 percent paid in cash.
After the process, the Registry will then register the company in the Companies Registry of the resident First Instance Court. Again, when it comes to Greece company registration, an announcement must be made and published on the Government Gazette bulletin of Corporations under the guidance of the partners. The publication highlights some of the following information:
- A summary of the incorporation deed.
- The name of the company.
- Registered office.
- The objectives of the company and capital.
Note that your company is eligible to acquire legal personality only after completion of this process.
Procedures of Incorporation
Now, to register a business, you must have at least one shareholder and one director who can either be a person or a legal entity. The minimum paid-up capital is EUR 4, 500. For a Public Liability Company, you’ll require to have a minimum of one shareholder and three directors who can be of any nationality.
Application of a company seal forms one of the most important procedures in Greece company registration.
