For example, for the state registration of a business entity, it is enough for one of the founders to have a digital signature who will be authorized by the rest of the shareholders to act on their behalf by issuing a power of attorney. If the number of founders of the organization is more than three, they are entitled to authorize one of them to sign the statement in the document, confirming the intention to create an organization (the General Meeting minutes), and this document is therefore submitted to the registering authority.
In addition, shareholders may entrust the preparation and submission of documents to the registration authority for the state registration of the organization to another person, possessing electronic signature
Applicants submitting documents for online registration of business entities are exempt from state fees (p.p. 8.21 p. 8, Art. 257 of the Tax Code of Belarus).

When sending documents through a web portal the latter should be scanned in .pdf format and signed with the electronic digital signature of the applicant, who sent them.
