Why should you buy a shelf company?

You have a new business idea, you have received a business offer that is too good to refuse, or you have another reason for needing to set up a GmbH quickly and safely – in these cases buying a shelf company is the perfect solution for you. The formation of a new company usually takes between 2 and 3 months. After the notary appointment, you have to open a business account – depending on the bank, this can take 1 or 2 weeks. The notary cannot submit the GmbH incorporation documents to the commercial register until the share capital has been fully paid up. The registry court reviews the application, often makes an inquiry with the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) or demands an advance on costs. Only then, once all questions are answered, will the company be entered in the Commercial Register. You can skip this whole procedure by purchasing off the shelf a GmbH that has never been active and is absolutely without debts.

How to purchase a ready-made company in Germany

To reserve a ready-made company, we kindly ask you to pay 100 EUR deposit fee here. You will then receive a confirmation and the company documents.

After paying the deposit, you can transmit your data to quickly and easily through a secure online form. We will ask you about the new company name and activity you want to have as well as about the personal information of the future shareholders and managing directors.

To make payment as convenient as possible for you, we offer different ways of payment:

Advance payment: If you pay the purchase price before the notarisation, you will be the new company owner immediately after the notary appointment and can start your company activity on the same day. (recommended)

Payment after notarisation: Alternatively, you can transfer 50% of the purchase price before and the remaining part after the notarisation. In that case the purchase contract does not take effect until the full purchase price has been paid, and you cannot start your activity until the notary has provided a confirmation.

You can decide for yourself whether you want to travel to Germany for the notary appointment or prefer a remote certification.

Your contact person at Consultinghouse will be pleased to make an appointment with a German notary for you.

After the notarisation, you can start your business activity straight away, provided that you have signed the deeds in Germany before a notary. The process for remote certifications takes about 1 to 3 weeks. Please note that when you can start the activity of your business and whether it is possible immediately after the notary appointment depends on several legal factors. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your client advisor.

Fast processing, very good support. Thanks to the company, we were able to sign the investor contract in time.
