Launch your business

Choose a type

So you've got a great business idea, you've researched the market and defined your niche. Now it's time to choose the type of company that will be the best vehicle for your goals.
If you don’t want to become a business owner just yet, use Xolo Go to invoice like a company in 186 countries worldwide. With your Xolo Go account, you'll get a business bank account (IBAN), a slice of our umbrella company for legal invoicing, a smart invoicing tool with an automated VAT calculator, real-time business dashboard, and more! And, if you want to start a private limited company as your own legal entity, the forces of Estonian e-Residency and Xolo Leap will enable you to launch an LLC (OÜ) that’s 100% remote!

Sign up

Depending on your location, registering a company or freelancing full-time might be more difficult and time-consuming than you'd like.
But it doesn’t have to be! In today’s digital age, it's possible to (legally) avoid unnecessary bureaucracy. And this is where Xolo can help you. Launching an e-Residency company is faster and easier than anywhere else on earth (the current record is just 15 minutes!). And if you don't want to start a company and are just looking for a simple, legal way to invoice your clients, you can send your first invoice with Xolo Go in less than 10 minutes! Once you've decided which solution is the right one for you, sign up and our onboarding team will guide you through the rest!

Get to work

With Xolo as your accounting and business management partner, you can run a successful business from anywhere on the planet!
We’ve been helping talented professionals transition into solopreneurship since 2015. Along the way we’ve learned that success isn’t achieved in big, momentous milestones. Instead, the road to success is paved with mundane little moments (just like this one) — when we choose to make small, but steady steps forward. Let’s take this step together!

Try Xolo Leap Pro risk-free for 3 months

Sometimes the best way to find out if something is the right fit is to take it for a test drive. Sign up for our most popular Leap plan, Leap Pro, and we’ll give you three complimentary months to make sure it’s a good fit. You’ll have unlimited access to payment gateways like Paypal and Stripe, and you’re free to change (or cancel) your plan at any time. No hard feelings, mind games or guilt trips.


Choose a plan

Xolo supports most digital services with flexible solutions whether you’re looking for a part-time side gig or full-time remote work, selling services on marketplaces or in need of payment gateways, collaborating with freelancers or running a one-person show. Establish your own limited liability company or invoice international customers with Xolo’s revolutionary virtual company concept. Pick a business set-up tailored to your passion.

Get started

Sign up for the plan that works best for you. We’ll ask some questions and help you along the way.

To start a company with Xolo, you’ll need Estonia’s e-Residency card. Signing up for it is easy and straightforward. It may take a few weeks for you to get the card but once you've got it, you'll be able to manage your business online from anywhere.

If you don’t want to be a business owner with its commitments and costs, you can run a lean free-to-start business operation while still invoicing clients in 186 countries with Xolo Go. 


Focus on your passion

You’ll have all the tools you need to create and send invoices, manage expenses, register business trips and monitor your company’s cashflow. We’ll even set up a business bank account for you! No need to worry about your accounting and reporting as they will be taken care of by us in the background. You’ll also have a dedicated point of contact here at Xolo, and we're just an email away if you have any questions.


I still can't believe how much easier and more convenient the everyday business administration is with e-Estonia in general and Xolo specifically.
