Europe Emirates Group can help you start your business in Liechtenstein
Company formation in Liechtenstein covers several different formats including limited liability companies, termed as an AG or GmbH, which does not have shareholders. Set-up normally takes one working week.
A simple limited liability company requires two or more members and has a minimum capital requirement, plus one director (can also be a corporation) and a registered local agent. Each member’s liability is determined by the amount of shares that they hold and annual accounts must be submitted.
For an AG company, following reservation of the company name, the local registrar and other authorities that apply are contacted, the company is structured and the Articles of Association and company statutes are registered with the Chamber of Commerce.
Anstalt is another option and is a foundation that may hold shares of international companies without a requirement for shareholders but needs starting capital and a sole director. This is particularly useful for those who want a company to maintain hold over an interest. These can include patents, copyrights, real estate and royalties.
The third type of corporation option is a trust, also known as a foundation. This is not a commercial corporation and it has no shareholders. Its structure consists of the deeds and operating assets. Foundations only need give a copy of their deed to the authorities, but it doesn’t have to be specific as to what the foundation actually does.
Foundations do not have the right to conduct commercial business unless the business is in line with the purpose of the foundation, and a Board of Trustees handles administrative issues.
