Advice from the

General Information

Austria is home to a flourishing economy, extremely high purchasing power (recently hit by high inflation) and high social stability. The country’s geographic location gives it an undeniable strategic advantage. Many businesses have their general headquarters for Central and Eastern Europe, the natural and traditional market for Austria, in Vienna. Germany and Italy are Austria’s main competitors. The Austrian market is dominated by large businesses and commercial presence is crucial for developing a significant share in the market. The corporate tax rate stands at 25%. Some entities, such as trusts, benefit from specific tax regulations which can be advantageous. On the other hand, the tax rates for individuals are higher than those in France.


Means of Payment & Banking Specificities

Cheques are rarely used in Austria, apart from by certain administrative and insurance companies.
