Set-up-a-HORECA-business-in-Liechtenstein.jpgOne of the most attractive investment industries in Liechtenstein is tourism, as foreign investors set up all sorts of businesses among which those in the HORECA or hospitality sector are becoming more and more popular. Enterprisers can set up from small to larger types of companies in the HORECA sector in Liechtenstein.

HORECA stands for:

  • - hotels and other accommodation units;
  • - restaurants and fast foods;
  • - cafes.

Foreign enterprisers who want to set up such business in Liechtenstein must first register a company, then obtain all the necessary licenses and approval from the local authorities. Below, our Liechtenstein company formation agents explain how to register a company in the HORECA industry.

HORECA company registration in Liechtenstein

Local and foreign enterprisers can start HORECA companies in various cities across Liechtenstein, some of the most appreciated regions being located in the mountain areas. The company registration process is the same as for any other type of business, but once the business is set up, the licensing phase will begin.

The licenses which must be obtained for a HORECA company in Liechtenstein depend on the type of activity carried out. These companies can operate as hotels, restaurants or cafes or can integrate all these activities into one.

Our company registration consultants in Liechtenstein can assist with the incorporation of the HORECA business.

Licensing of HORECA companies in Liechtenstein

There are various types of licenses required when opening a company in the hospitality industry in Liechtenstein. Among these are:

  • - food and liquor licenses for restaurants and cafes, which must be obtained from the Veterinary and Food Administration Authority;
  • - accommodation establishment licenses for hotels.

Apart from these, hotels and restaurants can also obtain ratings from the Hotel and Gastronomy Unit. These can also be recognized by international organizations.

With respect to the licensing and classification of hotels in Liechtenstein, the permits will be issued based on the size and services offered by the company.
