Extracts from commercial register of Latvia

Schmidt & Schmidt offers financial statements from Latvia in electronic form and their translations into English.

According to law, companies in Latvia must submit annual financial statements.

These data are reported in electronic form or in paper, or in paper by post. Depending on the company’s revenue, balance, number of employees, legal form and nature of business the law requires different amounts of data to be published.

Reporting of financial statements in Latvia is subject to the Accounting Act, Annual Financial Statements Act and other regulations.

National accounting standards in Latvia are based on the IFRS. During the creation of Latvian accounting standards in 1990s, the Danish accounting system was taken as a basis.
