  2. You will also need to obtain a business license from your local government. This is usually done by filling out a form and paying a fee.
  3. Once you have your business license, you can register your business with the state or country in which you will be doing business.

What do taxes look like

The first thing to consider when starting a business in Europe is taxes. Depending on the country, the tax rate can be quite high. However, there are ways to minimize your tax burden by setting up your business in a tax-friendly jurisdiction. For example, Malta has a low corporate tax rate of 5%. And, if you set up your business as a holding company, you can take advantage of Bulgaria’s 0% dividend tax.

What are the regulatory issues to consider?

What are the major cities and countries to start your startup
