As a company offering printing, publishing and duplicating services, where in the European Community am I allowed to set up a business?

February 09 2012 | Printing Services


In the printing, publishing and duplication services businesses you are free to establish or invest in any European Community country with a few exceptions below:

In Latvia and Lithuania, only companies that are nationally incorporated have the right to establish companies in the publishing fields.

In Poland, the Editor-in Chief of newspapers and journals must be a national of the country.

In Sweden, the owner and the publisher of a publishing and printing company must meet a residency requirement.

There are other restrictions on Barbadian firms establishing printing or publishing businesses in other EC countries that apply to areas like real estate ownership, maximum dollar amount of investment and the scope of operation of the businesses.
