With a purchasing power that is amongst the highest in Europe, Austria is an attractive country to start a business in. Independent studies show that Austrians place a high value on price, brand, and quality. Austria’s corporate tax is 25% and there are no other local income taxes, making its corporate taxation model more transparent than Germany which buffers its supposedly low corporate tax with additional municipal taxes. Austria’s economy is stable, and eCommerce is widespread, boasting 5 million online shoppers.


Our all-inclusive Austrian company formation package provides you with all you need to incorporate and run a company in Austria, including a bank introduction and VAT registration.

  • Economically stable environment
  • Transparent corporate taxes
  • Low inflation rate
  • Low unemployment rate


Austria has a robust local infrastructure and a stable economy. An Austrian GmbH (Limited Liability Company) is a prestigious company to hold due to the high initial share capital required to open one — €35,000, of which 50% must be paid upfront. The country has numerous double-taxation treaties in place, allowing for reductions in withholding taxes depending on the treaty being invoked. Foreign withholding taxes can be credited against the Austrian Corporate Income Tax (CIT).
