I am coming to France to start a small clothing business, with the option of sewing products myself and hiring a small team of seamstresses, as well as also working with a larger manufacturer/factory to make my clothing products (once I find one suitable for my products). I will sell mostly online.
- I anticipate low turnover in year one, but start-up/equipment/studio expenses, and I wish to limit liability and minimizes taxes. I am leaning toward EURL. What is the most efficient and affordable way to set this up? Are there any reputable, online services that can set up an EURL?
- Is there value in starting as an individual and then change to an EURL down the road?
- What would this business be classified as? Commercial? Artisan? Would I need to register this with a particular association, such as artisans?
