Liechtenstein offers a diversified, stable, highly industrialized business location. In particular, Liechtenstein has a specialized, internationally strongly networked and stable financial center with corresponding experts such as banks, trustees, lawyers and auditors.

The combination of a strong industry, an established financial center, market access to the EEA and Switzerland, progressive legislation and the innovation framework create an ideal foundation for innovation.

Against this backdrop, a remarkable, broad-based ecosystem for innovative companies has developed in recent years.

Currently, business models in the FinTech and blockchain sector are particularly in the foreground and have led to a flourishing start-up scene with a lot of know-how on the topic. However, the established financial center and the industry are also focusing on the possibilities and potential of blockchain technology.

Location Advantages

The unique conditions and location advantages have made Liechtenstein a very attractive business location for FinTech and Blockchain companies over the past years and allowed a remarkably strong ecosystem to develop.

Legal certainty in highly dynamic market-environments

The Liechtenstein Innovation Framework under the leadership and competence of the SFI and by means of the Innovation-Clubs, ensures that the legal and regulatory framework can be adapted to economic and technological developments in an agile and dynamic manner.

Two Market Accesses

As a member of the EEA since 1995, Liechtenstein has EU-compatible regulations and full freedom to provide services for all EEA countries.
Due to the Customs Treaty with Switzerland of 1923, Liechtenstein companies also benefit from privileged access to the Swiss economic area. In Liechtenstein, the Swiss franc (CHF) is the official national currency.

Strong Ecosystem

Proven, experienced experts, consulting and service offerings in the field of Blockchain, FinTech, “emerging technologies” (legal advice, tax advice, bank access), a thriving start-up scene, innovative projects and a dense and high-quality event offering form the basis for a strong ecosystem.

Innovation-friendly Government and Authorities

The innovation-friendliness of the government and authorities as well as the manageable size and short decision-making paths ensure efficiency, speed and flexibility.

Attractive Corporate Taxation

In Liechtenstein, the income tax rate for legal entities is 12.5% (flat tax rate). The minimum income tax is CHF 1,800.00. The simple tax system is also characterized by company-friendly dealings with the tax authorities.

Flexible
Company Forms

With the LVC, the Establishment, the Protected Cell Company (PCC) and the Liechtenstein Foundation, Liechtenstein offers flexible and partly unique corporate forms for innovative companies.

Research & Education

The University of Liechtenstein acts as an innovation center for shaping the future. In numerous projects and programs, it provides impulses for business, politics and society.

At the University of Liechtenstein, two certificate programs are currently dealing with topics related to blockchain.
In addition, numerous event series and seminars are offered on this topic.
