Organizing new business

Do you want your company to become active in business in Germany? Are you considering founding a branch or a subsidiary company in Germany? WW+KN will support you in analysing whether your business activities will require you to establish a taxable workplace with a German tax obligation according to a double taxation agreement or according to the German fiscal code.

Beyond this, WW+KN will advise you as to the most beneficial choice of legal entity in Germany, with regard to economics and taxation:

  • Founding a branch office / workplace

  • Founding a subsidiary company as a corporation (GmbH or AG)

  • Founding a subsidiary company in the legal entity of a private company (KG, OHG, GbR)

WW+KN will support you in opening a bank account in Germany, in carrying out the necessary legal formalities together with a notary or lawyer, and in registering your workplace or subsidiary with the authorities. You can depend on the services of WW+KN and begin work with a completely set up business entity in Germany.

If you wish, WW+KN will also support you in the following areas:

  • Hiring new employees (determining a typical salary, tax-related content in the employment contracts, etc.)

  • Advice on making company and business contracts (possibly together with a lawyer)

  • Representing your interests in Germany by accepting an appropriate power of attorney (e.g. for opening a bank account, for representation to the authorities, and to make contracts)

  • Support in selecting a location, renting business premises, and making contact with local authorities, decision-makers and companies
