  • Remit your initial capital into the temporary account.
  • Report the incorporation to the Korean Court.
  • Apply for a Korean business tax ID and any other necessary licenses from the tax authorities.

Reporting Foreign Investors

When registering foreign investors, certain documents, like a POA and copies of the investor’s ID and address, may need notarization.

Korea requires all legal companies to be registered with the Korean Court. Once your company is registered, it will be granted legal authority to operate in Korea. This registration is a crucial step to ensure your business complies with local regulations and gains legal standing.
