European Shelf Companies from Vistra Poland

A European Company (also known as a ‘Societas Europaea’ or ‘SE’) is a modern corporate vehicle for conducting commercial activity in Europe and beyond.

SEs are primarily regulated by the EU, although national laws may apply if the SE is formed by way of a joint venture between two Member State companies.

SEs are becoming increasingly popular across Europe due to the many benefits they offer businesses. These include the following: 

  • An SE’s registered office may be moved to another EU Member State without the need to liquidate the company.
  • An SE can be established in any EU Member State (subject to certain criteria), enabling a business to choose the most suitable tax and legal system within the EU.
  • Operating via an SE may strengthen a business’s brand and increase its credibility in the market.
  • There is no need to maintain a network of subsidiaries, which streamlines the corporate structure and reduces costs.
  • As an EU-regulated company, an SE is largely independent of individual Member State regulations; this often simplifies cross-border transactions.
