Macau is the Special Administrative Region within the territory of the People's Republic of China. It is a potentially beneficial region for investments with such fast-growing industries as textile, tobacco and gambling. Macau has a well-developed financial infrastructure and creates favourable conditions for running a business.

Forms of Legal and Business Presence

  • Limited Company – a vehicle that can be incorporated by 2 founders at least and the total number of shareholders should not exceed 30. The statutory capital of MOP 25,000 is required for establishing this vehicle. The liability of shareholders, in this case, is limited to the amount of contributions made.
  • One Member Limited Company – as its title suggests, a vehicle can be incorporated by one person who should contribute at least MOP 25,000. The liability does not exceed the amount of the contribution made.
  • General Partnership – this vehicle also can be established by 2 founders at least who bear the entire and unlimited liability for the results of the vehicle’s operation.
  • Simple Limited Partnership – as its title indicates, this vehicle can be formed and operated by (i) one founder who bears the entire and unlimited liability for the entity’s undertakings and (ii) a founder whose liability is limited to the amount of the contribution made.
  • Partnership Limited by Shares – like the previous type of a vehicle, this entity can be formed by at least one partner who bears the unlimited liability for all entity’s undertakings and at least 3 founders whose liability is limited to the amount of the contributions made. The statutory capital of the vehicle constitutes MOP 1,000,000.
  • Joint Stock Company – this vehicle should have at least three founders and the statutory capital in the amount of MOP 1,000,000. The entity is more advanced, designated mainly for involving financing.

Collaborated with the company for 3 years. I can’t say that everything was smooth from the point of view of organizing the work; there was confusion in the structure of the work, etc. But I’ll specifically highlight employee Lyubov Malinowski, she very diligently corrected all errors and was in touch at the right time, her help was significant in all processes and she approached all issues precisely. I would like to separately highlight the moment when she solved the problem at her own expense, which speaks of the person’s professionalism and increased responsibility.

We had a slightly time-sensitive situation when it came to changing the beneficiary details on our account. Prifinance stepped up to the plate and handled everything quickly and professionally.It's not just about getting the job done. It's about how Prifinance does it. They're all about making complex financial matters simple and accessible for companies like ours. Plus, their team, especially Liubov Malinowski, has been nothing short of fantastic to work with - professional, timely and always on the ball.In short, FewMoreTaps OÜ wholeheartedly endorses Prifinance OÜ.

I'm thrilled with my experience with PriFinance! They helped me obtain a crypto license in Estonia without any hassle. The team was super understanding and always available to answer my questions and assist. It was great to see how they put effort into preparing the documents to ensure everything went smoothly. I'm delighted with the outcome and highly recommend PriFinance to anyone looking to get a license stress-free!
Opening an account with Prifinance in a Swiss bank was such an easy and quick process that I was shocked. It all started with the first call, where I received detailed guidance on the required documents and the entire procedure.One of the key highlights was their attention to detail. As someone who usually gets tangled up in paperwork, I was pleasantly surprised when they sent me all the documents and instructions clearly and neatly. No misunderstandings!Honestly, I expected opening a Swiss bank account to be complex and time-consuming, but thanks to Prifinance, I felt like a professional financial expert. Thank you for making this process so easy and enjoyable!
