Different Types of Business Structures in Greece


Limited Liability Company

LLC is one of the most common types of business structures, especially for establishing a small and medium-sized business. In Greece, one can opt for an LLC business structure with at least one shareholder and one director. This may be an individual or a legal entity regardless of their nationality. The liability of the shareholders shall be limited to the amount of capital invested by them.

Private Company

Just like a limited liability company, this business entity also requires just one shareholder and one director who may be an individual or a legal entity regardless of their nationality. The difference between these two business structures is that in this case the entity can be set up with a share capital of just 1 euro.


Investors can register either general partnerships or limited partnerships. In the case of general partnerships, members don’t have limited liability, unlike limited partnerships. Therefore most foreign investors in Greece prefer a limited liability partnership which is more flexible and comes with the assurance of limited liability in terms of debts and obligations. A minimum of two members should register a partnership, with a minimum share capital of 1,000 Euros.

Public Limited Company

This business structure mandates one shareholder and 3 directors who may be individuals or legal entities regardless of their nationality.

Branch Office

Branch Office in Greece can be set up with one shareholder and one director. The parent company shall be held responsible for the activities of the branch office as the branch office doesn’t get registered as a separate legal entity.

Representative Office

Representative Office is set up to promote its parent company’s products and services and to carry out market research. It cannot perform any profit-making or commercial activities.

Different Types of Taxes in Greece

Social Contributions
