Foundation of a company: be right before the beginning means to be right from the beginning
The first steps for the foundation must be taken very accurately – this principle is particularly applicable for a foundation of a company or the establishment of a branch office. It involves the future tax burden, selecting the legal form, liquidity planning and many other decisions. We help you in the process.

Start-up a subsidiary or open a branch office – we are there for you
The foundation of a company is definitely comparable to an adventure. You don’t necessarily have to start in a garage, where a number of success stories started up, especially in the US. But, there is always a bit of that “garage-feeling” involved: simple office furniture, a small vehicle fleet, you invest more time in the business development than in the artwork for the boardroom – and that is the right thing to do.
Many formalities, especially purely legal ones, need to be taken into account. The foundation of a company, a permanent establishment or a branch office is required to start a business. This is true for a German setting up a new company, but also for foreign companies wishing to gain a foothold in Germany or in Europe. Sometimes even basic steps like the registration for entry into the commercial register and obtaining a tax number is challenging for foreign companies.
The first step must therefore be taken very carefully. All the mistakes that are avoided here will not need rectification later on when the business is running well. If a tax audit takes place some years later, it may sometimes lead to unpleasant surprises. Seeking professional advice right at the beginning is therefore indispensable.
