Extracts from commercial register of Kosovo

Schmidt & Schmidt provides extracts from the commercial register of Kosovo with a translation and an legalization.
Kosovo is a partially recognised state in the Balkans. It declared independence from Serbia in 2008 as the Republic of Kosovo, and since then its status has been disputed. Serbia claims the territory as the Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija, while Kosovo is recognised as an independent state by 111 member states of the United Nations.

Kosovo is a parliamentary republic with a president as a head of state. Local currency is the Euro. Official languages are Albanian and Serbian. Kosovo is a member of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.

Kosovan economy is currently in the state of transition. Economic development is impeded by the political instability as well as disputed status of Kosovo as a sovereign state. Kosovo is one of the poorest areas in Europe, and largely depends on remittances and foreign direct investment. Kosovo has an abundance of natural resources, and its main economic sector is mining. Another major sector is trade.

Kosovo is not considered an offshore jurisdiction or a tax haven. Like economy, its legislature is in the transition period. Business activities in Kosovo are regulated by the Law No. 02/L-123 “On Business Organizations” and other relevant laws.
