Incorporating a company in Liechtenstein is tax – efficient way for entrepreneurs to conduct business in Europe or internationally.
Subsidiaries are legal entities with capital that is partially or totally owned by foreign companies. However, the management of the subsidiary is not conditioned by the foreign capital, and the entity is able to handle business contracts, hire employees or issue and transfer shares.
In Liechtenstein, the main taxes levied on businesses are corporate taxes, the capital tax, the VAT and the coupon (withholding) tax. There is no separate capital gains tax. Capital gains are treated as taxable income unless they come from real estate, in which case a property profits tax is levied.
