Registering with Trade Office in Germany
Many competitors "forget" this seemingly unimportant detail. The law requires that all businesses with a trade as line of business and that have their own physical business location must register the company with this office. We are only talking of a registration – no more no less. N.B. Corporations listed in the Commercial Registry are always considered to be a "trade" – regardless of their class of business. They are considered as "formal tradesmen".
The authorities want this registration typically for statistical reasons. Failing to register is a misdemeanor and can be fined with up to 50 k€. We prevent this and will take care of your business by
- filling out the registration form for you,
- paying their fees,
- answering any and all of the trade office's follow-up questions,
- forwarding the official registration slip to you for your records.
Standard approach means that our service will be provided in written proceedings. It will take a few weeks time until you receive the slip. This registration is not urgent. A lack of registration does not hinder you from running your business – while it is being processed.
Some people only have issues with the German language, forms, formalities, or whatever else when it comes to Germany bureaucracy but otherwise want to do things themselves. We are especially thinking of low budget start-ups wanting to do everything correctly but yet lack liquidity. This service will be to correctly fill out the form and email it to you. You will then go into the office and register, and pay their fees yourself.
An urgent processing means we prepare the application and go into the office and register the business in person during the next possible opening hours. When do you need to have the company registered urgently? Disregarding your personal needs, it is most feasible when your line of business is subject to permission.
