up a company in Germany
on the scope of your business and the marketing strategy the
German/European market can be developed through house-to-house
distribution, commercial or trade partners, an own representative or
trade office or a German branch company. If you decided to enter the
German market through the setting up of a German company you have to
find the most suitable legal form: Non-incorporated (Personengesellschaft)
or incorporated firm (Kapitalgesellschaft).
The most common legal form (especially for SMEs) is the GmbH/UG, the
equivalent to the British Limited. The establishment process of a GmbH
can take between a few days and several weeks depending on the
investment amount, the line of business etc.
the set up of a German company requires advise and assistance of
several third parties (notary, lawyer, tax consultant, bank etc.). The
German Center for Market Entry maintains a wide network of experienced
partners. We take care for all necessities and approvals and coordinate
the required partners. So you save time and money and can focus on what
really matters: Your business.
