Most operations in Portugal and particularly in Lisbon are made through a private limited company (sociedade por quotas – LDA) which can be registered if EUR 5,000 are provided as a minimum share capital in a Portuguese bank account. This type of business offers liability to owners only on their capital contribution in the company. Among the conditions imposed for an LDA in Portugal, we mention the following:
