Deloitte Legal | Who we are

Why Lithuania?


The Lithuanian government strongly supports FinTech start-ups, by providing them with benefits that allow FinTech companies to get a license and access the European financial market at significantly lower incorporation and operational costs.

Here, in Lithuania, FinTech start-ups are provided with such privileges as:

  • Obtaining e-money or payment institution license in 3 months;
  • Sandbox regime which grants non-existence of regulatory sanctions for the first year;
  • “Lite” bank license for specialized banks with minimum capital requirement – € 1 M;
  • Full SEPA reachability (34 countries) via CENTROlink, a payment system operated by the Bank of Lithuania, to non-banking institutions, including EMI and API;
  • Ability to issue your own IBANs.
