Business registration

To incorporate in Luxembourg, there is no need to be resident as there is no discrimination between locals and foreigners. There are several possible legal  forms in Luxembourg, the most common are the Joint Stock Company (Société Anonyme) and the Limited Liability Company (Société à Responsabilité Limitée).

 

Joint Stock Company (Société Anonyme )

  • Minimum capital: 31 000 EUR
  • Minimum of 2 shareholders (individuals or corporations)
  • Shareholders’ liability limited to the amount subscribed
  • Board of directors should be at least three
  • Memorandum Articles of Association must be in either in French or in German
  • A registered office in Luxembourg is required
  • Accounts need to be submitted every year to the Registrar of Companies
  • The Joint Stock Company needs to be audited if its balance sheet exceeds 3,125M EUR of if its sales value exceeds 6,25M EUR or if the company is over 50 employees

 

Limited Liability Company (Société à Responsabilité Limitée) 

  • Minimum capital: 12 500 EUR
  • No more than 40 shareholders
  • Shareholders’ liability limited to the amount subscribed
  • No annual general meeting if the company is below 25 shareholders

 

Any legal entity can be considered as a Holding Company (Société à Participation Financière) as long as a specific label is mentioned in the Memorandum Articles of Association. The Holding Company is not a separate legal entity and must therefore be established as one of the existing legal forms to operate.

 

There are other forms in Luxembourg, such as:

  • General Partnership (Société Civile or Société en Nom Collectif) - Partners are liable for the full debts of the company
  • Limited Partnership (Société en Commandite Simple or Société en Commandite par Actions)
  • Branch of Overseas Company - Permit needed
