German Company Formation
Foreign investors are welcomed in Germany and are not restricted to certain types of business investment or company set up. Investors should be aware of EU legislation but are able to buy into local companies without restriction.
Universal Company Incorporations has the expertise in German company formation to establish a professional corporate structure reflective of your core business. Our team will maximise your long term growth and profitability prospects to make your expansion into Germany both sustainable and successful.
Company Set Up Options
- A Limited Liability Corporation (GmbH) is the most popular type of company with a simple structure
- Stock Corporation (AG) is the standard corporate form for major public companies
- Sole Proprietor is the simplest form of business entity with fewest regulations.
