Company creation

The main types of companies in Luxembourg

The most common types of commercial and industrial companies are the limited liability companies.

The Public Limited Liability Company (“S.A.”)

It may be incorporated by just one founder and does not have a limitation imposed on the number of members. The share capital must amount to 30,000 EUR. A minimum of 7,500 euros must be paid at incorporation and the rest in maximum 5 years.

The Private Limited Liability Company (“S.à r.l.”)

The share capital must amount to 12,000 EUR which must be fully paid when the company is registered. The number of members may vary from 2 to 40.
Legal entities of this type can also be established by a single person and are called sole proprietorships.
The registered seat of the Company must be located in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg. The Directors do not need to have the Luxembourgish nationality.

The Simplified Private Limited Liability Company (“S.à r.l.-S”)

Since January 16, 2017, the S.à.r.l.-S allows entrepreneurs in Luxembourg to start their own company from 1 euros onwards.
Contrary to the classic S.à.r.l. statute, the new S.à.r.l.-S has the following features:
The share capital amounts between 1 and 12,000 euros ;
It may be constituted as a private deed, i.e. without the intervention of a notary ;
It is open exclusively to physical persons ;
cannot be associated with the same person more than once ;
only concerns activities for which a business permit is necessary ;
It is not under the obligation of changing into a standard S.à.r.l. after a certain number of years ;

The business license

It is mandatory for any commercial or industrial business and for the exercise of the vast majority of self-employed jobs. This authorization must be requested from the Ministry of Classes Moyennes.
The business license is always personal. Thus, in the case of a company, it is its manager who must make the request and on whom rests the business license.

Brief overview of the Soparfi

The SOPARFI is a generic term to designate companies whose purpose is hold and manage participating interest in affiliated undertakings. Besides these holding activities, the SOPARFI can carry out any other object be it commercial, real estate or industrial providing that it has the necessary authorization.

The SOPARFI is therefore subject to the common tax and legal framework. The most common legal forms are the SA or Sàrl. The capital requirement depends on the legal form. The registered office must be situated in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg.

The SICAR

The SICAR does not constitute a new legal form of company. It should rather be regarded as a legal and tax framework applicable to an existing legal form.
The purpose of the SICAR is to invest in securities representing risk capital in order to enable the investors to the benefit of the result of the management of such assets in consideration for the risk incurred.

The securitisation vehicle

The main purpose of the securitisation law is to design a legal and a tax neutral environment for securitisation transactions realised through Luxembourg. The securitisation is a technique through which a company wishes to remove a given asset from its balance sheet. The securitisation vehicle will issue securities towards investors against cash consideration. The Securitisation Vehicle will then acquire the contemplated asset. Said asset is most of the time acquired with a discount and the discount which is equal to the return of the investor will depend on the risk underlying in the asset acquired.

The scope of the Securitisation Vehicle is very broad and offers full flexibility, legal certainty in a neutral tax environment for the investors.

The Private Wealth Management Company

The Private Wealth Management Company is an alternative to H29 held by private individual investors. This law is a consequence of the decision of the EU commission on the incompatibility of the H29 regime with EU state aid rules.

It is a vehicle designed for the management of the Private Wealth in a tax efficient manner providing for a deferral of the taxation when proceeds are distributed to the investors.
