Liechtenstein: Triple-A Ratings

Liechtenstein is gaining traction as one of the preferred investment destinations among European countries. For one, it has one of the most stable economies in Europe – rating agencies have offered triple-A ratings for several years in a row due to economic stability. These triple-A ratings, coupled with the stable economy, have driven many foreign investments in Liechtenstein.

Tax System
Liechtenstein’s attractive taxation system is one of the main reasons that appeal to foreign investors. With a maximum income tax rate of 20% and a slew of tax and investments agreements, Liechtenstein offers many other benefits to global investors. 

Easy Registration
The simple company registration process in Liechtenstein impresses many global investors. In Liechtenstein, the company incorporation process is simple and easy where you need to provide the Public Registry details and documents about your proposed business and minimum share capital of EUR 30,000 for a limited liability company. You can have your company incorporated within a few working days.

Access to Large Markets
Liechtenstein is part of the European Economic Area (EEA) – the EEA includes European Union (EU) countries as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. Therefore, Liechtenstein is also part of the EU’s single market – global investors can tap the huge EU markets via Liechtenstein. Liechtenstein ranks among the best countries in the world in setting up insurance companies and investment funds. Though Liechtenstein is not an EU member, it has signed quite a number of agreements with the EU states that enable investors from EU states to set up businesses in the investment funds sector in Liechtenstein.
