In fact, were we Bulgarian speakers I've an idea we could do it ourselves....
The entry in the Commercial register can be done by the company manager, authorised person or a lawyer. Since ever in Bulgaria the lawyers register copmanies. This was because the set-up of a company was a court procedure.
And yes, I agree, you can manage by yourselves just once you know the language, the required documents and the procedure.
If you do not know the language and the procedure, probably you will seek a professional advice.
