Do you want to found a company in austria? Do you dream of self-employment? Do you finally want to be your own boss? Where will you register your company?
We show you how to start your own company with the following four steps and what you have to consider:
The Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKO) advises entrepreneurs and those who want to become entrepreneurs. Particularly in the start-up phase, the WKO is there to advise and act on behalf of its protégés. The free consulting sessions as well as the various workshops and coaching sessions are particularly recommended.
In addition, the WKO will provide you with a confirmation of start-up (NeuFöG). This largely exempts you from fees and charges in the start-up process.
Is your business based on a free trade? If so, you can immediately register your trade electronically with your district office of the WKO. Otherwise, the business registration takes place at the district authority or the magistrate of the future company location. You can always just rent a premium business address in 1010 vienna from postservice.at, if you don’t plan on renting your own office any time soon.

As soon as you establish your company, you are obliged to register with the Social Insurance for Trade and Industry.
Normally, the SV will automatically send you the necessary documents as soon as they become aware of your new company. However, if this takes longer than a month, you should take the step of approaching the SV.
In parallel with the notification to the SV, you must apply to the tax office for a tax number within one month. To do this, you simply send a letter to the tax office informing them of the establishment of your company (business opening notification). The business opening notification can also be submitted by the trade authority.
