If the business continues
If the business continues while the owner of the company moves abroad, it is necessary to have a representative who resides in the Faroes. The representative and the company then have joint responsibility. The representative must complete and sign the registration form "Representative in the Faroe Islands for a foreign company".
If the business closes down
If the business in the Faroes ceases while the owner moves abroad, the company must deregister in TAKS' business register, Vinnuskráin.
