Moldova is one of the small but promising countries in Eastern Europe. The jurisdiction is actively working on reforming the economy and many other areas to fulfill the plan for European integration. Among other things, the country is intensively developing such sectors as the production of building materials and glass, agriculture, the textile industry, and alternative energy. It should also be noted that winemaking is the visiting card of the country. Therefore, registering a company in Chisinau or any other Moldovan city is advantageous due to the following advantages of the jurisdiction.

Advantages of registering a company in Moldova

The decision to buy or open a company in Moldova can be potentially beneficial because of the following advantages of the country:

  • advantageous geographic location;
  • openness to foreign capital;
  • ease of registration process, including online;
  • availability of free economic zones;
  • the ability to take advantage of the terms of double taxation agreements with many countries.

Forms of doing business in Moldova

It is possible to create a business or establish a legal presence in Moldova in one or more forms:

  • Limited Liability Company is the most popular form of business in Moldova, in which the company participants do not bear any responsibility for the investment funds. Even one person can register this company, including non-resident and legal entities. The number of shareholders cannot exceed 50. The minimum authorized capital is 5,400 Moldovan lei (about $250) for companies operating in specific sectors.
  • A joint-stock company is a form of business (usually large) designed to attract large amounts of external financing. A company can issue and offer its shares to third parties without restrictions. The liability of shareholders is limited solely to the value of their shares. The company can be founded even by one person, including a non-resident or legal entity, and the maximum number of shareholders is not limited by law. To form this type of company, a share capital of 20,000 Moldovan lei (about 1,000 USD) is required, but the amount of the share capital may be higher, which the company's scope will influence.
  • A branch is an option chosen by foreign companies to conduct the same activities in Moldova as they do abroad, but with minimal costs. A simple registration procedure is required, after which the branch can start its activities in Moldova. The parent company bears full responsibility for the activities of the branch.
  • A representative office is an alternative option for a foreign company. It receives the right to explore local markets and promote its goods/services without the right to conduct business activities in Moldova. A simplified registration procedure is required.
