New tax efficient investment vehicle now available
Until recently all investments structures in Estonia have been subject to authorisation and supervision of the FSA. Investors aiming to set up an unregulated investment structure had limited alternatives until the Parliament adopted new Investment Funds Act (the “IFA”) on December 14, 2016 introducing the tax efficient limited partnership fund (‘Fund’) structure. The new law entered into force on 10 January 2017.
