Public Limited Company registration conditions

Our legal experts will assist you in the incorporation process. To be incorporated as an AG, a company must have at least one director, one shareholder, a legally registered address in Austria, and at least €70,000 in share capital, of which at least 25% must be paid before registration. A statutory auditor is required of an AG, as is the submission of complete financial statements to tax authorities.


The registration process with the IRS can take up to two weeks. A business license application takes a few hours to complete and a total of seven weeks.


The average charge for an Austria engagement is €14,920, which covers all government fees as well as company formation and obtaining a local corporate bank account.

Compulsory regulation

The Austrian PLC, also known as an AG in Austria, is the legal entity recommended for entrepreneurs seeking financing to list on the Vienna Stock Exchange Market. For incorporation, the minimum share capital of €70,000 is required, with at least 25% of the total sum payable at the start of the process. One shareholder and director must be nominated, whether they are foreigners or locals.

AGs, like LLCs, are required to register for value-added tax if their yearly turnover exceeds €30,000 and to employ a statutory auditor.

Our legal experts will guide you through the incorporation process.


To complete the process, you will need to present the following documents: 

  • Directors and stockholders must have notarized passports or identification cards,
  • The company’s legal documentation,
  • A lease agreement with a local address for the company’s Austrian office,
  • Documentation for managers and directors, such as copies of passports, identification cards, residency permits, and so on,
