Company Creation Overview



Establishment of a Company in Greece

Greece is located in southeastern Europe and its geographical location makes it a crucial crossroads connecting Europe with Asia and Africa.


The Greek economy is based on two pillars of tourism and shipping, which are the most important industries in the country that contribute greatly to GDP, as well as a major source of foreign exchange. Two new emerging industries that are also developing in the past 5 years in the Greek economy are Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and logistics services.


 The main types of businesses that can be established in Greece are two:


Capital and Personnel

Required foundation capital of 60,000 €

The capital divides equities into shares

Long life of the company

Limited liability of partners/shareholders

For the establishment of SA, you require a notarial deed with the participation of lawyers as well as various administrative permits.
