Overview

Favourable and stimulating business environment

Serbia is one of very few countries in Europe with the lowest profit tax. Together with its exceptionally favourable geographic location, it has highly qualified and well-educated people potential, especially in IT industry. Operate within one of Serbian free zones, enjoy low company costs, duty-free regime for most of the key industrial products, and unlock new market opportunities for your company.

 

The most suitable legal form for setting up business in Serbia is a limited liability company (d.o.o.) which corresponds to the form of limited liability partnership (LLP) by its structure. It can have one or more shareholders, but the liability is limited to the founding capital of the company. Also, a company can have one or more directors, which offers the opportunity to manage a new business more efficiently. According to Serbian legislation, foreign citizens have equal legal rights to setup a company in Serbia as well as domestic ones. The minimum amount of founding capital for company registration in Serbia is RSD100, which is less than €1. The company’s address has to be at the territory of Serbia, which opens numerous opportunities for investment and development even outside the capital. The whole process of establishing a company in Serbia can be carried out in just a few days with the professional guidance and coordination of all necessary legal steps.
