Branch and Subsidiary Information

Open a Branch in Greece

Greece is welcoming to foreign investment, imposing few restrictions on non-domicile businesses. The country has excellent business links with the Balkans, and establishing a Greek branch can take advantage of this in terms of increasing exposure and global presence.

The procedures involved in branch formation are more complex than those required for a company, and this is reflected in the respective timescales.

Open a Subsidiary in Greece

Greece is a favourable country for foreign investors looking to establish a subsidiary. It has relatively low labour costs and an advantageous location for reliable business links with southern Europe, the Balkans and the Middle East.

In addition, the implementation of a new act (the ‘Simplification of procedures for setting up single-member and limited liability companies and other provisions’) has made the incorporation timescale much shorter.
