During the registration it is possible to add natural person and legal entities as shareholders.
There are some details that has to be considered in this process.
Due to regulatory requirements to minimise risk, Qonto can only accept certain shareholders when setting up a company. Minors, legal entities and persons outside EU/EFTA countries may only be accepted with restrictions.
In these following links, we can find the important guidelines regarding the mentioned exceptions:
Legal entities/companies | What must be observed in the case of legal persons as shareholders?
Persons without proof of identity from EU/EFTA countries | What must be observed in the case of shareholders originating from outside the EU/EFTA?
When it is about the paying of the capital deposit, we have to emphasise that the emitter-name and the amount have to be the same as it is stated in the contract.
In case of any discrepancies the transaction will be send back to the emitter IBAN and the client will be informed about the details through an E-mail.
⚠️ In case where the shareholder is a legal entity, the emitter-name should of course be the name of that company who is taking over the part of the capital deposit - that means not the name of the natural person which is representing this legal entity.
When all the data is correct (emitter-name and the amount) the capital deposit will be validated - which means that the client is receiving the new generated bank statement as a proof for the notary.
