Company mobility in the internal market

BusinessEurope is fully supportive of measures which make it easier to perform essential cross-border operations such as mergers, divisions and conversions. Unlike European citizens, legal persons (companies) in the EU cannot yet fully enjoy their fundamental freedom of movement/establishment.

There is still a strong need in Europe to have instruments that help especially small businesses expand their activities across borders. Only 2% of SMEs invest abroad by setting up companies in other countries, when the European market is made of 500 million consumers, a great source of opportunities to export their goods and services.
