SETTING UP A BUSINESS IN GREECE

General
Greek law provides for a variety of legal forms for carrying out a business. In addition for establishing a Greek company or entity (partnership), foreign enterprises may establish and operate a business in Greece by forming a Greek Branch or entering into a Joint Venture with another enterprise. Foreign enterprises can also establish an office or a company in Greece under Law 89, whose sole scope of activity is to provide certain services to its head office or any other affiliate company not established in Greece. Individuals can operate as sole traders or freelance professionals.
