Andorra, far more than skiing and shopping

 The Principality of Andorra has become an extremely popular destination, not just for those who wish to set up a second home here, drawn to the country by the long ski seasons or the shopping getaways, but also as a singular place to live, far away from the commotion of the big cities.

There are many factors that make Andorra one of the most highly valued places to live: its strategic location, bordering both Spain and France; its Mediterranean climate with winters marked by high-mountain temperatures and snow, and its pleasant, moderate summers; the fact that Andorra is known to be one of the safest countries in the world; the fact that it is a “multilingual” country where Catalan is the official language, yet where Spanish, English, French and other highly influential languages including Russian and German are also spoken; its optimal connections with road and air transport networks; its unique educational environment, where the Andorran educational system coexists with the Spanish and French systems (in addition to prestigious private European educational centres); the diversity of its leisure and recreational activities, which range from Romanesque art and architecture routes to skiing on the endless slopes of the Vallnord and Granvalira ski areas, golfing on southern Europe’s highest 9-hole course, spa tourism at Caldea, hiking and a long list of activities amid breathtaking, unique landscapes.

Investing in Andorra

In recent years, Andorra has opened up to the world in the economic, business, tax and finance areas, becoming a particularly attractive place to invest. Boasting one of the most stable political structures in the world, entrepreneurs and businesspeople have found in Andorra the ideal place to relocate their companies and expand their horizons.

Andorra’s new tax framework, with highly competitive tax rates, both regionally and internationally, is now comparable with that of any country in Europe. The VAT rate in Andorra is currently 4.5% (IGI), the personal income tax rate ranges between 0.5% and 10% (at the very most), and the corporate income tax rate is 10% (with reductions of up to 80% for strategic investments). In addition to this, the country has recently signed treaties to protect citizens and residents from being taxed on the same item in two different countries.
