[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Europe remains one of the top business destinations in the world and many European cities have an attractive startup environment, encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship. What are some popular European jurisdictions for a startup? We look at company incorporation in Germany and other EU and non-EU countries to answer this question.
Although Asia and other locations are popular for basing a startup, namely because of the low tax regime for investors who start a company in Singapore or Hong Kong, Europe also presents a number of undeniable advantages, starting with the unified EU market.
Some of the top countries in Europe to start a business are the following:
Although it is not part of the EU or the EEA, Switzerland is also a popular destination for basing a business because of its reputation as a financial center and the corporate and personal taxation regimes. Investors who open a Swiss branch will be able to manage their European operations from a top location and will have important tax advantages.
What are some of the issues to keep in mind when choosing the location of the business?
The taxation regime is important for many entrepreneurs and, naturally, as this is an important concern for them, they may wish to choose from the countries with the lowest corporate income tax rates in Europe, such as Romania, Hungary or Cyprus.
When the business opportunities are important with financing options such as accelerators or incubators, investors may wish to choose between countries that offer great connectivity in Europe, perhaps the Netherlands.
Europe offers many diverse opportunities for entrepreneurs and choosing a suitable business location has to do both with the immediate benefits for the business and the long-term goals of the company.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
