Hi Viljo,

We want small honest freelancers to always feel (digitally) at home in Estonia. When it comes to taxation, it’s absolutely true that we don’t compete with tax havens, but instead focusing on how we can help people do more business globally through trusted companies. Most e-residents pay about 60 to 100 euros per month for all their business services, although I know a few who pay less. I think globally that’s quite competitive. Many of us on the programme were entrepreneurs before joining e-Residency so I remember myself having to pay 50 pounds per month in the UK just for the virtual office / contact person service, whereas accountancy is the much bigger expense.
