Company Law

What do companies need to consider?

Companies from the United Kingdom (mainly "Limited"), whose actual administrative headquarters are located in Austria, are recognised in Austria only on the basis of the European Court of Justice's case-law on freedom of establishment.

In case of a withdrawal regulated by the withdrawal agreement, this case law would continue to apply for the duration of the transition period stipulated in the withdrawal agreement. Within this period, "Limited" companies in Austria may, for example, transfer their business to an Austrian legal form or carry out a so-called cross-border merger with an Austrian corporation.
