The advantages of creating a company or corporation in Andorra

Fiscal Advantages

This is the major attraction for many investors and can be summarised as follows: a maximum of 10% corporation tax on profits (which in some cases, depending on the activity of the company, can be reduced to 2% or even complete exemption), value added tax (VAT) of 4.5% (the lowest in Europe), and annual company maintenance fees below €850 for ordinary businesses.

Labour costs and reduced social contributions

Labour costs in Andorra are substantially lower than in Spain or France. The same is true for Social Security contributions, which are set at 15.5% for companies, despite being over 30% in both Spain and France. This facilitates the recruitment of employees and reduces the fixed costs for any entrepreneur who decides to create a company in Andorra.

Salaries in Andorra

Salaries also offer highly competitive rates. Since 2018, the average salary in Andorra has been around €2,100 per month, while the minimum wage is €1,157.87 per month. Although the most recent figures from the INE demonstrate that the average salary in Spain is similar to Andorra, the difference in labour costs as a result of Social Security contributions means that Spanish salaries are actually up to 15% higher than those in Andorra. In France, the average salary stayed at €2,957 per month in 2016; when 32% is added to cover Social Security, the final total is €3,844 per month (while in Andorra it is €2,346 per month, nearly 40% less).

Other advantages of setting up a company in Andorra:

  • In addition to the tax benefits of opening a business or company in Andorra, investors who relocate to live in the country also highlight other important aspects that offer its inhabitants a great quality of life:

    • Just 5% of Andorra is covered by urban areas and infrastructure, leaving the rest as nature intended. The air quality is enviable and the level of noise pollution is low.
    • It has the 5th highest life expectancy of any country in the world. In addition, the principality is among the healthiest countries and appears at the top of world rankings for healthcare systems.
    • In the field of education, Andorra has three public systems of primary, secondary and higher education: Andorran, French and Spanish (with congregational and secular centres). In addition, there are also private English schools of recognised prestige.

Models of entities for creating companies in Andorra and how much each one costs:

There are two possible types of entities when creating companies or corporations in Andorra:


The S.L. "Sociedad Limitada" (Private Limited Company), a limited liability company with a minimum of €3,000 in capital. This type of company is the best option for those who want to establish small companies or businesses. When the company has a single shareholder, it will be a Sociedad Limitada Unipersonal (S.L.U.). When setting up a limited company or a sole proprietorship, the costs for registering are just €1,000 and an annual maintenance fee of around €850 should be taken into consideration.

The S.A. "Sociedad Anónima" (Public Limited Company), a type of public limited company with a minimum of €60,000 in capital. This is the best option for companies with a larger turnover and typically with several shareholders contributing capital. Similar to the previous example, when the company has a single shareholder it will be a Sociedad Anónima Unipersonal (S.A.U.). The costs for registering an S.A. are around €1,500, plus €950 for the annual maintenance fee.

Steps to follow when creating a corporation in Andorra:

1. Company name application:
You can choose three different names in order of preference. The government will provide confirmation within 10 days.
2. Application for investment authorisation:
Every shareholder/non-resident partner must request advance authorisation for foreign investment in an Andorran corporation. This process takes approximately 10 - 15 days.
3. Pre-opening of the company bank account:
A request to open a bank account and the documents required by the banking entity are submitted. You must outline your activity, the origins of the funds, and your profile with complete transparency. Expect the pre-authorisation of your account to take between one and four weeks.
4. Incorporation and registration of the corporation in the company register:
The statutes are formalised before an Andorran notary public and the corporation is registered in the Andorran company register.
5. Commencement of trading by the corporation:
The commencement of trading is requested. At this time you must have a confirmed address for your company, an electrical report for your office or premises, and valid paperwork for an extinguisher at the address of your corporation.
