Principal Forms of Legal and Business Presence

If you want to buy a company in Lithuania, create a new one, or formalize entrepreneurial presence in any other manner, these variations are available for this purpose:
  • Private Limited Company – an enterprise that is considered to be one of the most convenient and popular among local and foreign businessmen due to the flexibility of its establishing and operation. This legal entity should have at least one founder (shareholder) and the maximum number of participants is limited to 250. The minimum value of statutory capital of this type of legal person shall be at least EUR 2,500. No members are liable in excess of the amounts of funds contributed to the enterprise. The requirements for reporting are simple and easy to fulfill in this case.
  • Public Limited Company – a legal entity suitable for medium and large enterprises who intend to carry out external financing. At least one shareholder is required to establish this legal person. The minimum amount of statutory capital for this entity is EUR 40,000. The financial obligation of each shareowner does not exceed the amount of shares in possession of such a shareholder. A more complex management structure is required in this case – a board of directors. Also, stricter requirements are applied to accounting and reporting.
  • General Partnership – a variation of a joint operation in the area of entrepreneurship where all partners (2-20) bear the unrestricted liability for the outcomes of joint transactions. This business arrangement is based on the agreement where partners describe their rights and duties with regard to joint doing business. It should be noted that in the case of potential failures even the personal property of partners may be called.
  • Limited Partnership – a variation of joint entrepreneurship that can be carried out by (i) two general partners who are entirely obliged for all partnership's debts, and (ii) at least one partner who is not responsible for the obligations of the partnership in excess of the value contributed. The total number of members shall not be higher than 20. Partnership-related duties and rights are governed by the respective agreement.
  • Branch – an opportunity for a foreign enterprise to carry out the same types of business-related activities as in the country of its origin. This option is suitable for those foreign entrepreneurs who intend to test local business opportunities before making more valuable investments in the country. The liability for the outcomes of the operation of a branch always bears a foreign parent company.
  • Representative office – an option for handling market investigation and promotional activities by a foreign legal person without an opportunity to carry out any type of operations in Lithuania. The formalization of a representative office is required in the state prior to the commencement of its activities. Paying respective fees is obligatory also.
