Hi,

I'm currently looking at Andorran active residency—is there a minimum stay requirement considering I'd be employed full time in my Andorran SL company?

I'm referring to both the legal and tax residency.

Regarding tax residency, OECD states the following:
a) Natural persons staying more than 183 days in Andorran territory over the calendar year. In order to determine the permanence in Andorran territory, occasional absences are included, unless the taxpayer proves his residency for tax purposes in another countries.
b) Natural persons whose main base or centre of their activities or economic interests is situated, directly or indirectly, in Andorra.

So, would full time employment in a SL constitute "main centre of activities/economic interests"? What about legal residency?

Thanks

I would say it only matter if your previous country will challenge your Andorra tax residency (if there’s DTA between those countries).
They won't, and there's no DTA.

However, it seems like the police checks how long has one been staying in country:

"As an active resident, you do need to live in the country full-time. Residency renewal applications often involve a visit from the police to ensure your apartment has furniture, food and, is actually lived in.

By definition, you’ll need to be in the country for a minimum of 183 days per year. As a result, you become a fiscal resident and are subject to the tax system."

I don’t recommend you andorra, 6 months there is very boring, the police only go to your home when the renovation is close to be renovated again, and they ask to the neighbors too if they see you often

if you do passive residence and claim tax residency do the police also come to check?
I have been visiting Andorra couple times. Yes, 6 months of living there could be very boring, but you have to live at some place. Some people just love nature and calm!
However, for existing Andorra budget I would say it's not worth. Better just do Monaco..

Thanks for the info, so it's true. Andorra is a no go for me then. I'll take a look at Cyprus, the 60 days requirement makes more sense compared to this.

Passive residency makes no sense for me either either.
