Registration of a trademark in Liechtenstein

When registering or operating a business in Liechtenstein it’s very critical that you protect your intellectual property rights and register a trademark.
A trademark is a unique name (and/or image) that marks your identity in the goods and services market, distinguishing you from other entrepreneurs and manufacturers. Unregistered brand markers do not provide any guarantees, which explains why the registration procedure is so important. The registration mark provides an opportunity to protect your intellectual property from counterfeiting and unauthorised use.

Corporate taxes in Liechtenstein

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.
