It is important for us to know what you plan to do, as certain fields of activity, such as medicine or crafting businesses, may require special permissions to operate. We also check the choosen names to avoid future legal problems for you.

What You Should Know

before the company formation process

Will you assist us in setting up the shareholder agreements?2023-03-30T14:08:10+00:00

Most clients opt for the template drafts provided by our notary office. However, if you have specific requirements, we will accommodate them, considering that this may incur additional costs.

How long should I stay in Germany for the registration process?2023-03-30T14:04:27+00:00

Based on our extensive experience, we can complete all steps with you in a single day. However, we recommend that our clients plan for a 2-3 day stay to ensure everything is completed smoothly.

What is the lead time for the process?2023-03-30T14:05:03+00:00

Generally, it takes 2-3 days, but to provide a more accurate estimate, we need to know your specific plans.

Can I complete the formation process at the German embassy in my country?2023-03-30T14:07:07+00:00

Yes we can prepare the necessary documents and many company formation services to promote this option, we strongly recommend that clients come to Germany. Because opening a bank account can be challenging without the director to be present.

Yes, you can, but remember that some fields may require special licenses or degrees from the company director. Before submitting the formation documents to the notary, we will guide and discuss this with you.
