Legal questions before setting up a business

Wondering how to set up a business in the Basque Country? Before you start, you will need to consider a number of key legal issues.

  • Protecting your project. Think about protecting the elements that make up your added value, such as: your brand name, your patent registrations, your inventions or innovations, your intellectual creations, the domain name of your website.
  • Choosing a legal status. This step requires a certain amount of thought, depending on your development strategy. No legal status is better than another, each simply has its own specific features, which may prove more advantageous than another, depending on your business policy. There are many different types of companies in France such as SAS, SASU, SARL, micro-entreprise or sole proprietorship. Each is adapted to the specific nature of your business. Tax conditions may also differ according to the legal form chosen.
  • Finalizing administrative formalities to start your business. The aim is to obtain your business registration. This marks the date on which you obtain the legal status you need to operate legally in France.
