The European Company and how to form one.

The European Company (also known by its Latin name Societas Europaea or SE) is a type of public, limited-liability company regulated under EU law.

There are several reasons why you should considersetting up a European Company:

A simpler and cheaper way to run business across more than one EU country. For example, you can regroup your activities under a single European label;
Greater mobility on the single market. For instance, you can transfer your registered office to another EU country without having to dissolve the company;
A framework for cross-border operations. For example your can involve staff employed in more than one country and run your business without setting up a network of subsidiaries.
How to form a European Company?
There are 4 possibilities, depending on your situation:

merger - for public limited companies from at least 2 different EU countries;
forming a holding company - for public and private limited companies with registered offices in different EU countries or which have had subsidiaries/branches in EU countries other than the country where they are registered for at least 2 years;
joint subsidiary - same conditions as for the holding company,
simple conversion from a public limited company - if it has a registered office in one EU country and has had a subsidiary in a different EU country for at least 2 years.
Features of European Companies
Legal form: public limited-liability company;
A European company has legal personality;
