If you own and run an Estonian company while operating outside Estonia and not being a tax resident in Estonia, there are 2 main options for receiving funds from your company:
There’s no obligation to pay any salary or take dividends, if you are the sole shareholder and employee of your company. It’s reasonable to argue that when a business is still in its infancy, the company can’t afford to pay out anything. So you can start operating your company without receiving any salary. Similarly, you do not have to pay out any dividends even if you could.
You have the following combinations available:
keep all the money in the company and reinvest to boost your business or
receive salary only (no min nor max sum) or
receive salary + dividends
