Company Formation in Luxembourg
Contrary to popular belief, Luxembourg is not a “low-tax” country. In fact, its taxes are, on average, quite high. However, if your company qualifies for a particular structure, the taxation rates can be phenomenally low. This is why such enormous corporations as Regus and AdvanziaBank, to name a few, have made Luxembourg their headquarters. This low-tax structure is called a Soparfi and it is one of the packages we offer in our Luxembourg Company Formation service.

- Extremely tax-efficient structure when using the Soparfi (Société de Participations Financiéres) vehicle
- Corporate tax as low as 0.5% for those companies that qualify
- Private Wealth Companies (SPF) do not need to pay corporate tax
- Multiple other benefits
Luxembourg is a popular location for companies fitting into the intricate and very specific category of Soparfi companies — a special type of holding or financing company which benefits from a highly tax-efficient structure. The Soparfi is not a legal entity in itself but is usually incorporated using a joint-stock (SA) or private limited (SARL) structure. Soparfi dividends are exempt from tax, and there are sometimes other tax benefits for profits and dividends. Luxembourg also offers benefits for Private Wealth Management companies (SPFs). SPFs do not need to pay corporate taxes, municipal income tax or net worth tax.
