Liechtenstein is a microstate or Principality in Western Europe, bordering Austria and Switzerland. It is a member of the European Economic Area and the WTO and at the same time not a member of the European Union. So, it has its own official currency, which is the Swiss franc (CHF). Despite its small territories and small population, the country has a thriving economy. The standard of living of its people is one of the highest in the world.

  • The GDP growth rate of this state always hovers around 4%.
  • The inflation rate for June 2020 is -1.3%.
  • According to the latest data in 2018, the unemployment rate was 1.7%.
  • Both women and men - citizens of Liechtenstein - retire at the age of 64.
  • Export prevails over imports almost 2 times.
  • The country's credit rating, compiled by S&P in 2016, has the best possible indicator - AAA.

Because of Liechtenstein is a microstate, access to natural resources is limited, and supplies are from Switzerland. Therefore, the main industrial activity in the country is processing. Due to the good climate and its unusual territorial and political status - tourism, services and agriculture flourish. The latter is mainly focused on meeting the needs of local residents.

In Liechtenstein, as in any other microstate - legislation is not very developed. Since Switzerland is the closest big neighbor, Liechtenstein is heavily dependent on it and its laws.

In Liechtenstein, the process of starting and running the business is quite free and simple:
  1. There is no state organization involved in the control and regulation of foreign and national investments;
  2. No restrictions on company mergers;
  3. Firms are not required to have their own office on the territory of the Principality;
At the same time, there are a number of limitations that should be kept in mind:
  1. According to the Commercial Act of 1969, only a person, who has been living there for > 10 years can establish a company;
  2. The government decides, which companies are useless for the country and can carry out its liquidation;
  3. The company must have local representatives in Liechtenstein;

The basics of the country's tax system are set out in the Law on National and Municipal Taxes and the Tax Code of the country;
