1. Why create a company in Bulgaria?

  • Bulgaria is a member of the EU.  
  • Stable economic environment.
  • Stable currency (LEV).
  • Favorable taxes – Bulgaria has a flat rate of 10% for individual and corporate tax, one of the lowest in Europe.
  • Double tax treaties – Bulgaria has signed Double Taxation Treaties with 58 countries.
  • Access to Bulgarian banks and other Payment processors such as Paypal and Stripe.  You can also open Wise and Revolut accounts.  
  • Low cost of living and starting up a company.
  • Low Labour costs with a highly skilled and multilingual workforce.
  • Allows you to buy land in Bulgaria which is normally prohibited for non-EU people.
  • Ideal location (South East Europe) to create a company.
  • You can create a Bulgarian company entirely remotely.

2. Services offered by my incorporator to create a company in Bulgaria

Iven, originally from Belgium, is my incorporator and will help you create a company in Bulgaria.  He is really great in the sense that he and his team are experts at helping foreigners incorporate in Bulgaria. You can find cheaper service providers, but they won’t offer such high level service such as on-going tax advice. The reality is that owning a company in Bulgaria, or anywhere for that matter, comes with a lot of cross-jurisdictional tax implications. You do not want to cheap out when it comes to international tax matters and support.

Typically, most people save a lot of money when incorporating in Bulgaria. Make sure to reinvest some of these savings into getting proper support.
