      An Overview On Incorporating a Company In Germany

      If someone wants to start a business on the European continent, Germany should be the first choice. Germany's central location on the European continent facilitates extensive networking and business development across the continent. Every European country is easily accessible in a few hours by various modes of transportation from Germany. As a result, Germany is the preferred location for starting a business.

      Germany has been one of the wealthiest nations in the European Union. It is also advantageous for new businesses for a variety of reasons. High education standards, a skilled and competent workforce, an efficient finance and banking system, low levels of corruption, solid infrastructure, and technological innovation are just a few examples.

          • Articles of incorporation notarized (AOA)
          • A document outlining the structure of the management board.
          • A certificate proving the deposit of the share capital
          • Directors' visas in the case of a foreign resident

          How Zolvit Helps You to Register a German Company Online

          • Step1: Filing the company application & Verification

            For verification of its company name, the company must file an application with the local chamber of the Department of Industry and Commerce.

          • Step2: Preparing A Draft - The Articles of Association

            Again when the company name has been authorised, you must prepare a draft of the Articles of Association and have it notarized by a public notary officer in Germany.

          • Step3: Opening a Bank Account in Germany

            Following that, you must open a local bank account in Germany. The German Commercial Register must receive the registration application, notarized AOA, details of the management board structure, and share capital. All of these documents can be submitted electronically as well.

          • Step 4: Applying Straight Away to The Business Standards Office

            This must apply to the Business Standards Office of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce or the trade license. In addition, the company must obtain an 8-digit operating number from the labour office. This number will also be mentioned as the company's Social Security Number (SSN). The company must then approach the appropriate tax department to obtain corporate tax registration.

          • Step 5: Getting An Official Permission to Start The Business

            Once all of the previous mentioned processes have been completed, the company can officially begin operations in Germany.

            Zolvit can complete all of your documentation needs in four working days or less. And if you're not completely satisfied, we'll work on the changes you require for another couple of days. Everything is at the lowest possible price, both online and offline.
