The Liechtenstein joint-stock company (Aktiengesellschaft / AG) is an entity with its own legal personality and is equivalent to the limited liability companies recognised in the EU member states.
Founding an AG can be accomplished either via simultaneous establishment or successive establishment. The company comes into formal existence upon its entry in the Public Register. A so-called Societas Europaea (SE) can also be established in Liechtenstein.
Additional information on the Liechtenstein AG can be found in the brochure on company forms of the Liechtenstein Institute of professional Trustees and Fiduciaries.
