Company formation in Germany

Do you already know what kind of company you would like to register in Germany?

GmbH formation


The establishment of a German GmbH-type company requires a minimum share capital of 25,000 EUR, of which at least half, that is, 12,500 EUR, must be paid into the company’s bank account after the business is set up.

A German GmbH is an internationally- recognised and renowned business form that demonstrates confidence to its business partners.

UG formation


Establishing a UG-type company (or Mini-GmbH) can be a good alternative to setting up a GmbH if the owners avail of less than EUR 12,500, or if they would like to try out their idea with less financial risk at first.

An UG can be established with EUR 1 in symbolic equity.

Company registration in Germany

In Germany, the companies with capital, – such as the GmbH and the UG – are obliged to pay corporate (in German: Körperschaftssteuer) and local business tax (in German: Gewerbesteuer). Both tax types are to be paid after the annual profit. The corporate income tax rate at present is 15%, while the local business tax varies from town to town, it is usually between 13-16%.

The duration of the company establishment depends on several factors, but it can be stated in general that the registration of a newly founded company and to receive its tax numbers takes a total of 1-3 months. If one needs an immediate solution, then the process can be shortened to 24 hours with the purchase of an entire company, so-called Vorratsgesellschaft or shelf company / ready-made company. These are such companies having performed no active business which have tax number and bank account number. The objective of their foundation is solely their later resale.

In case of the establishment of a new GmbH or UG, the Executive Director of the company is required to travel once. Contrary to this, the purchase of a ready company can be done with our office without travelling.

If the owners of the company to be established are natural persons, then all you need is your valid personal ID (in the case of EU citizens) or passport. In case of a passport, from 1st January, 2020 onwards, the copy of all pages is required including the blank pages. If the owner of the German company will be another company, then its articles of association and an up-to-date copy of the register is required from that company in official German translation and with Apostille endorsement.

The easiest way to start the company establishment is to assemble your dream company in just 2 minutes using our online configurator. Upon finishing the configuration, you will be able to order the company directly. As an alternative, please fill in our proposal request form clicking here. After this, our colleagues issue a personal proposal within an average of 1 business day which you will receive in email.

Regardless of whether your German company performs active business or not, you are to fulfil certain obligations. You can learn more about this and the occurring permanent costs in our following description: The costs of maintaining a company in Germany in 2020.
