Buying a Bulgarian Property as a Company

At present time, most people currently buying a property with land in Bulgaria still do so via a company-irrespective of the new rights of EU citizens.

The company is owned by the shareholders (you) and the company owns the property. It is a perfectly legal procedure and costs a bout €300-750 (£200-500) to register the company (including all the state taxes and legal fees).There can be more than one shareholder. You will have to decide on a name for the company, deposit in a bank at least 3,500 leva (€1,800) as initial start-up capital (the bank account is called a capital-raising account), sign many documents and wait about two weeks for the process to be completed. Your lawyer or estate agent would be able to arrange this on your behalf in your absence by using power of attorney.
