Investing in Luxembourg

 
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg enjoys a central position in Europe and although it is one of the smallest states in Europe, it is an excellent destination for investments.
 
Luxembourg has an open economy and good infrastructure. Its central geographical location in Europe adds to the country’s attractiveness as a base for many international companies. Foreign investors will often engage in trade activities or open branches and subsidiaries that offer them access to the rest of Western Europe. 
 
The workforce in Luxembourg is another strong asset. The country has three official languages: Luxembourgish, French and German and English is also widely spoken. Luxembourg employees are fluent in more than one language and are highly educated.
 

Open or close a company in Luxembourg

 
The company incorporation procedure in Luxembourg is straightforward and a new company can become operational in a relatively short amount of time. However, there are certain steps that need to be followed during the incorporation phase. Our lawyers in Luxembourg can help you open a company, prepare and submit all the necessary documents requested by the authorities. 
 
Most commercial activities in Luxembourg are regulated and investors will need to obtain a business permit before commencing their activities. Our agents can help you apply for a business permit from the Directorate General for Small and Medium sized Enterprises and Entrepreneurship belonging to the Ministry of Economy.
 
Any company in Luxembourg will need to be registered at the Trade and Companies Register and submit the proper documents for VAT registration with the Tax authorities. Our lawyers can help you during all of these steps and can also help you decide what type of company is best suited to your needs.
 
Our representatives work with accountants in the Grand Duchy. By requesting our services, you can make sure that your company complies with the tax rules in Luxembourg.
 
Should you need to terminate a business in Luxembourg, our affiliate lawyers can also help you close a company either through dissolution, liquidation or compulsory liquidation. They will guide you through this procedure so that your company will fully close any business activities in the country and, at the same time, pay any debts to its creditors or employees.

Set up investment funds in Luxembourg

 
Luxembourg is one of the leading locations in the world for collective investment undertakings (UCIs or investment funds). These investment vehicles offer the ability to access various portfolio investments, share the associated costs or generate current income. The capital for these funds can be raised from several investors and the amounts are invested according to a specific investment policy.
 
Luxembourg has a wide range of investment funds available to the experienced entrepreneurs:
 
- UCITS: undertakings for collective investment in transferable securities;
- AIF: alternative investment fund;
- SIF: specialized investment fund;
- FCP: common fund;
- SICAV: investment company with variable capital;
- SICAF: investment company with fixed capital.
 
The decision to set up a UCI in its basic form as a FCP or as a SICAV can depend on the tax regulations for the chosen business structure and other operational and marketing issues. These structures will need to be controlled by a management company, have to comply with VAT regulations and, in some cases, the investors can even benefit from certain double tax treaties signed by Luxembourg.
 
Our lawyers in Luxembourg can give you detailed information about these investment options, the regulating authorities in this business field, as well as details about the most important investment structures such as the SICAV or SICAF.
 
Whenever you need legal advice and professional counseling in Corporate Law, our law firm will provide you with a full range of services that will help you resolve any problem that you may encounter.
