Belgium may appear as a suitable option for opening a company for many reasons. This country provides many opportunities for doing business in the European markets. It also cares about keeping and enhancing favourable conditions for entrepreneurs from various industries.

Major Legal Forms of Entities

You may register and operate here:
  • Limited liability company (BV/SRL) – this entity is the most widespread. Its founders (shareholders) bear liability within the invested amounts only. The minimal threshold for the share capital is absent for this entity.
  • Public limited company (NV/SA) – a company that may work well for a large-sized business who intends to enter stock exchange markets. The minimal threshold for the share capital, in this case, is EUR 61 500.
  • General partnership – this legal entity may be incorporated by two and more individuals who jointly carry out business under one name. This partnership doesn't have a minimum threshold for its share capital. All partners jointly take all decisions and bear unlimited liability for them. In the case of winding up, even personal property of partners can be affected.
  • Limited partnership – the entity can be established by (i) managing partners who run business, make decisions and bear unlimited liability for the obligations of the partnership, including within their personal assets, and (ii) silent partners whose liability is restricted to the amount of contributed funds and their personal assets are not affected by possible liquidation procedure. There is no requirement for the minimal threshold of the share capital.
