Principle and conditions

Before a natural person, an SNC, an SCS or an SARL opens a branch office, they must have received authorisation from the Minister of State.
For people of Monegasque nationality, who do not exercise a regulated activity, the opening of a branch office must be declared to the Minister of State.

Collating the documents
You must provide the tenure status of the premises and, in the event of the acquisition of a business or tenancy rights, you must provide proof of the announcement of the assignment deed in the Journal de Monaco.
You must provide the minutes of the Extraordinary General Meeting in which the opening of the branch office was agreed upon (unless there is a statutory provision which enables the legal representative to make this decision alone) as well as the tenure status of the premises.
In the event of the acquisition of a business or tenancy rights, proof of the publication of the announcement of the sale in the Journal de Monaco must be sent.
Submitting or sending off all the documents
All of the documents, including two signed and dated completed copies of the forms, in addition to the supporting evidence are submitted or sent off to the Trade and Industry Registry at the Business Development Agency (9 rue du Gabian - opening hours 9:30am - 5:00pm). You must pay the fees of €60 for changing the details of the registration by cheque made payable to the RCI or in cash at the service counter.
If the documents, such as a copy of the registration form or copy of the company’s entry in the Trade and Industry Registry, are sent in the post, then postage fees must be added to these registration fees.
