Handelsregisterauszug aus Guinea-Bissau

Schmidt & Schmidt provides extracts from the commercial register of Guinea-Bissau with a translation and an apostille as pdf-file via e-mail.

The Republic of Guinea-Bissau is a sovereign state located in West Africa, just west of Guinea. The country has a presidential system, with the president as head of state. Local currency is the CFA-Franc BCEAO. The official language, as opposed to Guinea, is Portuguese. Guinea-Bissau is a member of the United Nations (UN), the AKT-Group and other international organisations.

Guinea-Bissau ranks among the poorest countries in the world. 82% of the country's working population work in agriculture, creating 62% of the country's GDP. Despite these facts, Guinea-Bissau is rich on natural resources (bauxite, raw oil and phosphate) and has substantial agricultural potential. In the event of economic stabilisation, the country will be of major interest for investors.

Guinea-Bissau is counted among the romanic-germanic legal family (based on portuguese law). Unwritten constitutional law is admittable here.

Corporate practice is regulated in the Civil Code of 1984 and other legal statutes.
