Open A Branch In Luxembourg

Introduction to setting up a Luxembourg branch

Luxembourg has a range of incentives that make the country popular with foreign investors. These include low tax rates, neutrality and a geographical position advantageous for trading with European and other overseas markets. The parent company of the branch must obtain a trading permit from the Ministère des Classes Moyens before the branch can commence trading.


What are the formalities regarding Luxembourg branches?

  • A copy of the parent company’s Certificate of Incorporation
  • A copy of the Memorandum & Articles of Association of the parent company
  • A registered address in Luxembourg
  • A copy of the parent company’s Certificate of Good Standing
  • Nominate a representative of the Luxembourg branch

The documents above are required by the Trade and Companies Register in order for branch registration.

All documentation must normally be notarised, apostilled and translated into French by a certified translator.


What are the accounting requirements for a Luxembourg Branch?

The branch must register with the relevant Tax Authorities in Luxembourg in order for appropriate taxation to be calculated.

The filing of VAT returns either monthly, quarterly or annually depends on the turnover of the branch, and tax returns should be filed annually.

The parent company should keep the accounts of the branch in accordance with the Luxembourg Commercial Code and the Law on commercial companies.
