Setting up a foreing exchange bureau in Georgia
One of the manners through which foreign investors can start the procedure of company formation in Georgia as a financial business is by opening a foreign exchange bureau.
The registration is performed following the regulations provided by the Organic Law of Georgia, which falls under the authority of the National Bank of the country. In this case, it is necessary to file an application form with the National Bank of Georgia with seven days prior to starting the business activities, in which the investors confirm that the company meets the minimum requirements, such as:

• providing a device which can identify fake currency;
• owning a computer which operates the required software.
Our team of company formation agents in Georgia can offer further assistance on this subject, including on the business permits that can be requested for this type of activity.
