Incorporating a company doesn’t always have to be done in your home country. Offshore companies can offer many benefits that businesses wouldn’t otherwise get, including greater privacy and better tax rates.

Despite this irony, an Andorran company remains appealing to many entrepreneurs, thanks to the country’s very low corporate taxes.
Companies formed in Andorra are taxed at a maximum rate of 10%, while a comparable company in the USA, a country known to compete for international business, will have to pay 21% in corporate taxes.
In this article, we will run you through the basics of what you need to know about Andorran companies.
