Types of Businesses to Register in Luxembourg

All the companies are registered at the Trade and Companies Register in Luxembourg. Depending on the type of activity, a business license may be requested. 

Sole proprietorship

This is the simplest type of business since an entrepreneur is the only party involved in the business and the business decisions. It does not have a separate legal personality.

Partnership

Luxembourg introduced the Special Limited Partnership or Société en commandite spéciale (SCSp). It is composed of at least one general partner and one limited partner.

Capital company

Capital companies consist of capital contributions in the form of transferable company shares, such as partnership limited by shares, private LLC and public limited company.
