Liechtenstein Company FormationLiechtenstein Aktiengesellschaft (AG) Company Incorporation

An Aktiengesellschaft is the equivalent to a limited company in the UK, in that it is a legal entity which is separate and distinct from the individuals who run it. For sole traders and for people in partnerships, the individuals’ personal assets are at risk if there is a claim against the organisation but shareholders in an Aktiengesellschaft are liable to lose only the value of the share capital to which they subscribe.

Financial services are the main industries in Liechtenstein, e-banking is very common and the banking sector in general benefits from a high degree of confidentiality.
