Danish 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.
As Denmark has no government register of shareholders, the beneficial owners of the company enjoy high levels of confidentiality.
