For the foreign citizen who establishes a company but does not stay in the Moldovan territory longer than 90 days in the previous 180 days, there are no impediments or requirements to establish a company, except for some types related to particular sectors (such as the medical field).

If the founder wishes to stay longer than 90 days (even non-continuous) in the previous 180 days, he must obtain a residence permit. In this case he must produce from his state of origin a General Criminal Record with Apostille.

Specifically, we assist, with our affiliations, in preparing all the necessary documentation and in providing complete assistance in submitting the application for a Residence Permit.

Corporate taxation in Moldova offers several advantages to business owners. First of all, the country has a low corporate tax rate, the lowest possible (12%) in order for the country to remain ‘non-privileged tax status’ (i.e. white-listed according to the old wording), which translates into immediate tax savings and a countless number of advantages in dealing with the tax authorities of the state of taxation (e.g. the principle of ‘presumption of innocence’ applies in the event of an assessment or litigation with the tax authorities). It should also be emphasized that the distribution of company dividends is taxed at only 6%.

Secondly, non-membership of the CRS (Common Reporting Standard) is compensated for by the Moldovan state’s cooperative attitude towards countries requesting tax data on their citizens operating in Moldova, and this cooperation also prevents it from belonging to the category of black-listed states, (or according to the new wording, privileged tax status), with the consequences we know.

In any case, if you want to know more, (e.g. if you operate in the IT sector, or wish to make use of the Free Zone) visit the page on Moldovan taxation.

The language barrier, which in many countries has to be broken down with hard-to-find and therefore expensive human resources in the market, is reduced to a minimum here. The Moldovan people are perfectly bilingual (Romanian and Russian), so both the ability to learn a new language and the ability to communicate in Latin and Slavic root languages make Moldovan personnel extremely versatile.

In addition, English language learning has accelerated dramatically in the younger generations, so the language barrier is set to decrease more and more.

If we then assess the specific case of the Italian language, it is very easy, in everyday relations with strangers, to discover that many people understand Italian given the high percentage, in every household, of Moldovan emigrants who have stayed and worked in Italy.
