We had to urgently open our new business in Germany. The whole process was quite daunting but Kristof from GmbH-UG.com was extremely helpful from the first moment I contacted him. Quick to respond, precise and detailed with his instructions. The whole process was made very quick and easy for us. Highly recommended!
To start a German company as a foreigner can be turn into dificculty, because of the German burocracy, banks which are not willing to open an account and numerous regulations that must be complied with.
Over the past years, we have guided hundreds of entrepreneurs from 25 countries and 4 continents in establishing and running a successfull German company.
We will be your personal success manager for the entire process, and happy to assist you at any time.
With us, the preparation of your foundation usually takes less than 24 hours. However, the scheduling of a notary appointment can be delayed, depending on the availability of notaries and the city you would like to sign. Thanks to our network of notaries German-wide, we usually get an appointment faster than if someone unknown walks in off the street. No matter which package you choose, our colleagues will arrange the notary appointment for you.
After the notary appointment, you must open a new business account for your GmbH or UG in formation. We support you competently and quickly in opening an account with our partner banks.
After paying in the share capital, there is a period of waiting for the entry in the commercial register. During this time you are not yet allowed to start any business activity with the company. If you would rather get started immediately after the notary appointment, you can also acquire a shelf company.
Once all registrations have been made, you can apply for your company's tax number, EU VAT number and EORI number. With the help of our incorporation package, you can do the application yourself in a few minutes or hire a specialist to do it for you.
* The times are based on experience, which varies from city to city and from foundation to foundation. We recommend that you calculate about 1-3 months for the entire process.
