Luxembourg

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a landlocked country in Western Europe. It is bordered by Belgium, Germany and France. Regardless that Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in Europe it has proven to be an attractive and competitive business centre. Luxemburg is one the most preferable places for undertaking business and finance-related activities.

Luxembourg is the world's second largest investment fund centre (after the United States), the most important private banking centre in the Eurozone and Europe's leading centre for reinsurance companies. Luxembourg's stable and high-income market economy features moderate growth, low inflation, and a high level of innovation, the lowest VAT rates in Europe.

The official languages are Luxembourgish, French, and German and the currency is Euro (EUR).

Luxembourg’s company law allows for the creation of eight different legal entities, but the most sought-after and common are Public limited liability company (Societe Anonyme [S.A.]) and private limited liability company (Societe à responsabilite limitée [S.à r.l.]).
