Investing in Andorra with 100% of foreign capital is possible

This country has established itself as a renowned investment destination thanks to the new Foreign Investment Law.

Andorra is currently immersed in an economic openness process, due to which it is possible to invest 100% of foreign capital (meaning that no Andorran partner is needed), and contribute to diversifying the country’s growth model. New corporations can be constituted, which grant the possibility of obtaining the residency permit. The procedure for obtaining the non-profits or passive residency permits has been simplified, as well as those for entrepreneurial, sportive, cultural or scientific purposes.

The completion of the Andorra's tax reform, the opening process, and the economic accreditation, have been the result of the conventions signed to avoid double taxation – first with France and Spain, thereafter with the rest of countries–. From the unification of all indirect taxes into a General Indirect Tax (IGI, equivalent to the Spanish VAT or the French TVA) with a basic 4.5%, and an advantageous Personal Income Tax (10% maximum). These amendments have given solidity to all the investments made in the country, avoiding the tax haven connotation.
