The incorporation of a Luxembourg company takes place, as a rule, in the following steps:
•Selection of company name
In this respect, there are no special regulations; the name must not be expressly related to the company purpose; creative names are allowed.
The company’s name must solely be distinguishable from that of any other Luxembourg-based company.
•Preparation of the articles of incorporation
The articles of incorporation are determined by the founding partners and then submitted to a notary. The articles of incorporation can be in French, German or English. If originally written in English, a translation to French, or German must be included.
In case of a cash deposit, the deposited capital is paid, as a rule, to a blocked account at a European bank. The Bank then sends to the notary a written confirmation statement, as evidence of the deposit.
Where investments of material assets are concerned, a report issued by an independent auditor must be submitted to the notary. This report should verify that the value of the material investment at least equals the value of the shares issued in return.
The following documentation is required:
- Bank certification or a report from an auditor (in case of apport en nature);
- Copy of the applicant’s passport (for corporate entities, the excerpt from
the commercial registry), as well as those of the directors, management and oversight organs;
- Proxy statements for the persons appearing before the notary as the
- Declaration of the final commercial beneficiary of the company.
The articles of incorporation are then signed, either by the founding partners themselves or in accordance with the proxy statement, and certified by the notary. Following this process, the company can begin its intended work.
