If one of the shareholders involved in the formation of the company is a legal entity (company), its registered office must be located in one of the following countries:

🇩🇪 Germany

🇫🇷 France

🇮🇹 Italy

🇪🇸 Spain

🇱🇺Luxembourg

The legal representative of the shareholder company is responsible for the payment of the share capital and must be invited to the business account as a shareholder for this purpose.

You can upload the extract from the commercial register of the shareholder company/legal entity together with the incorporation documents during the registration.

Important: Qonto does not accept shareholder companies that are still in the incorporation phase as shareholders, unless the companies concerned have already opened an account with Qonto.

The legal representative is always indicated on the extract from the commercial register of the legal entity of the shareholder. Any legal form and activity of the legal entity is permitted with the exception of associations.

Depending on the country of the company's registered office, the legal representative identifies himself in the respective extract from the commercial register as follows:
