Company formation laws and agencies

All companies in Armenia must register with the State Registry, which is a special agency under the Ministry of Justice.

The company formation and company structures are governed by the Civil Code of Armenia. Further entity-specific laws apply to limited liability companies and joint-stock companies (private or public).

The Law on State Registration of Legal Entities and Individual Entrepreneurs governs the technicalities of the registration.

Joint-stock companies must in addition register their share issues with a private registrar.

Contract-based partnerships are governed by Chapter 55 of the Civil Code and are not subject to registration. There is also a specific law governing “individual entrepreneurs.”
