There are numerous good reasons to do business in Bulgaria: In particular, the fact that the country was admitted to the European Union in 2007 offers a secure basis. However, there are some special features to be observed on site that make professional support when founding and establishing your business sensible. Here is a compact overview.

PROFILE - Republic of Bulgaria
Capital: Sofia
Area: around 111,000 km²
Population: around 7 million
Currency: Lev (BGN) – 1 BGN corresponds to around 0.51 euros

The tax framework
One of the most important arguments: you can benefit from the special tax legislation. A flat tax applies in the Republic of Bulgaria, ie regardless of the amount of your income, a uniform tax rate of 10% is applied to income and corporate tax. The situation is similar for liquidation shares and dividends – here only 5% is applied as withholding tax.

Special feature:
If you want to establish a manufacturing industry in the Balkan state and focus on a region with high unemployment, you can reduce the tax burden to almost 0.

The infrastructural framework
At the same time, you can count on low wages and ancillary wage costs, although the level of education of the population is high. The situation is just as favorable in terms of purchase and rental prices for commercial real estate and energy costs. The infrastructure leaves nothing to be desired - right down to the fast internet that is available to you here. So it can be summarized that in the Bulgarian Republic you will find optimal employment and production conditions, so that you can reduce the running business costs as well as your liability risk.

Convenient selection of suitable corporate forms

Depending on your specific business concept, you can choose from one of the following corporate forms:

. ООД (OOD) – corresponds to the GmbH, i.e. a limited liability company, which can also be founded as an EOOD by a shareholder. Minimum share capital: 2 BGN

. АД (AG) – corresponds to the joint-stock company, which can be established with a minimum capital of BGN 50,000

. КД (KG) – corresponds to the limited partnership, which is a mixture of unlimited and limited partners

. с-ие (OHG) – corresponds to the OHG as an association of several shareholders, each of whom is personally liable

. Едноличен Търговец - corresponds to the registered merchant and can be used for all commercially run businesses

In particular, the OOD or EOOD are considered fully-fledged structures recognized within the EU.
