Creation of a European Private Company

Orgalime believes that, if substantial achievements have been attained in the development of the internal market for goods, there are still major entry barriers for companies, particularly SMEs with limited financial and personnel resources, who wish to set up Europe-wide company structures: the establishment of subsidiaries in EU member states still gives rise to complication and high costs, which with the development of the internal market should not exist.
Orgalime therefore requests the Commission to consider taking a further step in developing the internal market by simplifying the legal environment for companies through promoting the development of the European Private Company which we believe could be better adapted to the needs of SMEs than the present forms of European companies.
