Company Establishment Stages;

  • Certification of the articles of association at any notary public in the place where the company will be established
  • Opening a bank account on behalf of the company and paying the capital amount to the account
  • Registration of the trade registry in the court
  • Registration of companies in chamber of commerce and tax office and realization of company tax opening

Limited Company

  • The amount of capital required for the establishment of a limited company is 25,000 Euros. This amount will be paid to the bank account to be opened in the name of the company after the notarization of the company contract.
  • However, it should not be forgotten that individuals must have a residence permit or a business visa in Germany for company establishment.
  • For company establishment procedures, only the company representative must be present at the German notary.
  • In addition, the company representative will need a power of attorney (of all partners) to be able to carry out all transactions alone. Thus, the establishment procedures will be carried out through the company representative.
  • Company partners are not liable with their personal assets due to company debts.
  • As a result, the establishment phase of both companies is the same. Investors need to decide which type of company will suit them in terms of the investment they are targeting and which company they want to continue their commercial activities through.
