Austria Payment License

The EU directives are in effect in Austria. According to them, the financial-virtual instruments are divided according to the base of creation: hardware (in particular, digital wallets) and software products – “electronic cash”.

Requirements for the Company-License

If the applicant creates a business for which a payment license will be used, Austria requires:

  • to bring in the authorized capital – half of the whole necessary amount;
  • to have at least one shareholder;
  • to provide apostilled documentation (the decision of owners, the Memorandum of Association, the conclusion of the Board of Directors), as well as the protocol and the certificate of shares.

In the work process it is necessary to submit annual financial reports, pay taxes. Austria, as the EU-jurisdiction, opens opportunities for work throughout the European Union to e-money license holders. To access the markets of specific countries, it is necessary to undergo an additional procedure – certification.
