Establishing of a micro-enterprise is especially efficient in the service industry, where a person's work creates big surplus value. Besides that, if there is maximum allowed number of employees (i.e. 5 employees with 700 EUR salary each), micro-enterprise tax is more favorable. Conversely, micro-enterprise status is not suitable for trade and manufacturing enterprises, where most payments are made to purchase products and material supplies.
Tax reports are the same as with any other enterprise: monthly salary reports, quarterly turnover tax reports, VAT report - depends on the turnover, either monthly for big turnover, quarterly, or every six months, if there is no turnover.
