Foreign direct investments in Austria

Fitch, Moody’s and Standard and Poor’s, the three largest credit rating agencies in the world, have offered high ratings to Austria during the last few years which was a very strong reason for foreign investors to choose Austria as their business destination. Austria attracted foreign direct investments worth an average 5 billion euros in the last few years.

At the moment, Austria is one of the largest exporters in Europe and is one of the easiest countries to do business in, according to the World Bank, which are two other reasons that make this country very attractive to foreign investors who are mainly interested in industries like pharma and research and development. It is also known that the Government offers many tax breaks to Austrian companies in the research and development field.

Our company registration agents in Austria can offer information on the available tax incentives.
