Original documents for accountant?

We don't like them but we gotta pay them! How does it work in Bulgaria?

When my Accountant thought I was going to leave my original company documents and stamp with her for a couple of days, I didn't refuse because I did not trust her, I refused because, I need them to obtain my Russian Wife's registration here and I couldn't afford the risk of them getting lost or stolen over a weekend in a Yambol down town office.

In general, I advise everyone to never leave the original documents with anyone unless they really need to have them and give you a receipt for them.


Thank u all for your responses :D

It may be that the accountant is preparing to re-register this company in which case he/she would need the original formation documents for production at the court in order to obtain a " pre-registration " certificate which is one of the procedures for re-registration. Copies are not accepted by the courts for this purpose.

What happens if you have lost all your original company formation etc. papers, but the accountant has copies of them...will originals be needed for residency or anything?

Hi Mariela,

in a word, yes. You will need to obtain " certified copies " from the Court of original registration. This can only be done personally with proof of ID or by someone acting for you but with specific POA for this purpose.

Renewing residency requirements seem to vary widely depending on the MVR office that you are using but if they are requiring a " certificate of good standing " for your company then you will probably need to have a certified copy of your formation document to show to the Trade Registry. You would, in any case, need to have certified copies of your company documents if you ever decided to buy, sell etc.

Hopefully they will scrap this whole company thing for non traders and brits/eu nationals can then transfer their properties in their own names instead of company name. One can only hope!
