Denmark Company FormationDanish Anpartsselskab (ApS)

We can assist with the incorporation of a Danish Anpartsselskab (ApS) company.  A Danish ApS is similar to a Limited Liability Company (LLC) in the UK or a GmbH in Germany in that it is a legal entity which is separate and distinct from the individuals who run it.

Some of the key advantages to a Danish company formation are the favourable business climate, the strong economy and the high quality of life in the country. As the Denmark has no government register of shareholders, the beneficial owners of the company enjoy high levels of confidentiality.
