Our main research and consulting areas are education, labour market and financial analysis. This, however, does not mean that we limit ourselves only to these fields – our analysts are familiar with a wide range of quantitative and qualitative research methods that we are happy to apply to problems outside the domain of our main research areas.
In the EU, there is regulation for mergers of limited liability companies (Directive 2005/56/EC). Cross border transfer of registered office from or into Estonia so that the company continues its activities registered in the other country’s register is not possible. Also, cross-border divisions and cross-border mergers outside the scope of the directive are not possible. The purpose of this research is to identify the economic and legal problems arising from insufficient regulation of cross-border movement of companies from the perspective of practitioners and the Estonian business environment.
