In their quest for competitiveness, companies which are internationally active are increasingly looking to optimise their organisational corporate structure by either establishing regional headquaters, relocating headquater functions or relocating ther global headquaters.
Through its business-friendly environment, Luxembourg has attracted the European headquaters of many global companies such as Amazon, eBay, DuPont Teijin Films, Fanuc (Robotics et CNC), Guardian and Rakuten, who have conquered the European market through the Grand Duchy. More and more companies also establish their global headquaters in Luxembourg, as did for example ArcelorMittal, SES, Delphi (Powertrain Systems) and Cargolux, to name but a few.
With a rewarding fiscal environment and its business friendly legal and regulatory framework, Luxembourg is a well established jurisdiction for holding companies, known for the comprehensive participation exemption regime.
The standard of living provides an excellent home to top managers and their families and helps attract international staff.
Through excellent flight and high speed train connections, management and sales people can access rapidly to the European capitals.
The highly skilled multilingual workforce provides a valuable resource for corporate functions, such as financing and accounting (coming from the financial sector), for sales and marketing, supply chain management and logistics, as well as for R&D activities and IP management.
The state-of-the-art IT infrastructures and redundant broadband connectivity makes Luxembourg also the place to locate data centres and IT functions.
