How to registrate company in Andorra

Until these years, Andorra was inaccessible for foreign investors wishing to manage their business fully. However, after a law was passed in 2012 allowing foreign entrepreneurs to own 100% of the company, the attractiveness of this jurisdiction for non-residents has increased significantly. Non-resident investors received practically the same rights as local investors, i.e., they are allowed to open branches of external companies and establish firms within the state.

Despite the fact that this is a small principality, Andorra is an international leader in the field of technological and innovative developments, actively participates in the global banking and financial systems, minimizing the interference of government officials in the business environment. This is an offshore company that is quite liberal towards non-resident investors, which in every possible way supports the banking sector with various benefits and encourages tourism, the introduction of high technologies, trade, and so on. But, offering favorable and convenient conditions, Andorra puts forward no less stringent requirements.

Entrepreneurs wishing to open a company in Andorra will need to do the following:

  • submit an application for authorization of the investment process, indicating in it the amount of capital planned to be invested, the field of activity, the nature of economic relations and strategic partners, etc.
  • wait for the application to be approved by the Foreign Investment Department;
  • provide confirmation of the Articles of Association, which must contain a detailed description of the company’s activities;
  • if foreign founders own more than 10%, the entrepreneur will need to obtain a letter of approval from the Ministry of Economy.
