Serbia is a jurisdiction with a developed economy, infrastructure and a favorable environment for investment. Among other things, this applies to taxation. Legal entities in the country will allow for the efficient structuring of business activities. Company registration in Serbia will also not be associated with significant transaction costs for the registration and maintenance of the legal entity. A visa-free regime with the EU allows the country to attract foreign investors easily, but also this state has other advantages.

Advantages of jurisdiction

Company registration in Serbia opens up the following advantages for business:
  • advantageous location in the European region;
  • developed economy and banking sector;
  • low costs of opening and administering a Serbian legal entity;
  • easy procedure for foreign investors to obtain a residence permit;
  • low prices of hiring local labor force;
  • one of the lowest corporate taxes in the European region, and the VAT number is issued immediately after incorporation of the legal entity.

The primary forms of legal presence and business

If you intend to start a business in Serbia, it is possible to implement the business task in one of several options:
  • Limited Liability Company (DOO) is the most common Serbian legal entity among local entrepreneurs and non-residents. The liability of founders and participants of this type is limited to the amount of investment made in the company (the share each owns). Incorporating this type of Serbian legal entity requires a share capital of about 1 euro minimum (100 Serbian dinars), and it is allowed to contribute in cash and non-monetary equivalent. This type of Serbian legal entity can be established even by one participant. It is possible to transfer the share to a third party only after an acquisition offer has been sent to the other company participants.
  • Joint Stock Company (AD) is a Serbian legal entity that issues shares and can offer them to shareholders and third parties. As a rule, shares can be freely alienated, including third parties. For the incorporation, a share capital of approximately 25,000 euros (3,000,000 Serbian dinars) is required. A JSC may issue several classes of shares. Stricter reporting and auditing rules apply to JSCs. The instrument is suitable for attracting external financing.
  • A branch is an option of registering a branch of a company in Serbia for a foreign legal entity that intends to conduct the same activities in Serbia as abroad. This is a simple option for foreign legal entities who intend to test the local markets before investing significant amounts of money in the country.

Registration procedure

It is possible to open a company in Serbia after passing several stages of incorporation:
  1. Determination of the types of business activities for future work.
  2. Selection of the business name for the Serbian company. Reservation of the chosen name (optional).
  3. Gathering information about the founders and beneficiaries of the legal entity.
  4. Search and execution of legal relations with the management of the future legal entity.
  5. Registration of the official location of the legal entity.
  6. Drawing up founding documents for the Serbian legal entity.
  7. Opening a transit bank account for the investment of share capital before incorporation.
  8. Forming the package of documents and submitting it to the registrar. A specific package of documents is included based on the background of the business case.The company's founders will be required to provide copies of their passports (if they are private applicants) or an extract/certificate of registration when setting up a business on behalf of a legal entity. Also, a power of attorney should be issued to the person authorized to sign documents and perform registration procedures. All documents submitted to the registrar need to be translated into Serbian (an authorized officer of the court or certification office will be required), notarized and apostilled. The application is to be filled out in two copies. It must contain the full name of the organization (in the case of a sole proprietorship - the name of the applicant), address, and legal form.The standard registration package for a legal entity should include the following:
    • application for registration in the prescribed form (indicating the address of the legal entity, legal document and other data);
    • copies of the passports of individuals who are the founders of the legal entity or extracts from the register of legal entities in the country of registration if the founders are legal entities;
    • articles of association and/or memorandum of association;
    • the decision on the establishment of the legal entity, as well as on the appointment of its management;
    • certificate from the bank on the placement of funds on account of the payment of the share capital;
    • power of attorney for the representative.
  9. Payment of registration fees.
  10. Registration for social insurance purposes.
  11. Opening a bank account.
  12. Obtaining additional permits and licenses required for certain regulated activities.

Legislation and regulatory environment

Serbia offers equal opportunities for all interested persons to start and run a business. Foreign citizens and legal entities can start a business, and it is allowed to act by proxy. The registration process is not burdened with significant formalities and does not require considerable material costs for registering a company. Companies must maintain accounting and submit regular reports, so accounting support is worth taking care of. Non-residents receiving income in the country pay taxes to the Serbian treasury.

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.

As a software development crew at FewMoreTaps OÜ, we've had the pleasure of working with Prifinance on some key financial moves.First of all, navigating the world of corporate banking and finance can be a maze, but Prifinance made it feel like a walk in the park. They helped us set up a corporate bank account without the hassle of jumping on a plane or drowning in paperwork. Everything was done remotely, smoothly and securely.But that's not all. 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. Whether it's opening bank accounts remotely or navigating the financial legalities of running an international business, these guys have got your back.

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!
