It is essential to find out what kind of company is going to be the best option for your business. The most common four forms are: limited liability company (Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung (GmbH)), sole proprietorship (Einzelunternehmen), entrepreneurial company with limited liability (Unternehmergesellschaft (UG)) and freelancer (Freiberuflicher). Each form has its advantages and disadvantages and we can help you to find out which one is going to be the right one for YOU, so do not hesitate to contact us and get the information you need.
If you are already in Germany and you doubt that a limited liability company is the right fit for you, you may want to get to know more about sole proprietorships (Einzelunternehmen) or registering as a freelancer (Freiberufler). To become a freelancer you will however need to show a diploma proving your competence in your field. Should you have any difficulties to get the 12,500 Euros nominal capital required for a limited liability company (GmbH), you can start an entrepreneurial company (Unternehmergesellschaft (haftungsbeschränkt) – UG). Therefore you only need 1 Euro initial capital. Both of these company types can be opened by us and we would need your presence just once to open a bank account. Also, if it is not possible for you to travel to Germany, you may want to buy an off-the-shelf or ready-made company.
