Remote Founding of a Company in Germany
The law expects as a standard that the founder(s) and new director(s) personally visit the notary to celebrate the founding of a new company. There the founder(s) sign the articles of association and the director(s) apply to register the company. Each director also affirms that he is in good standing.
At times, a foreign investor might consider it too costly to come to Germany for a whole day just to execute the signatures with the notary and later go online to register with a bank. As we also embrace economically wise approaches, we developed a solution with our notary how to legally avoid the founder(s) and director(s) having to travel.
In collaboration with the notary we will organize the power of attorney as well as the director's affirmations and let you sign them. Some of these documents need to be signed and some also notarized and legalized. When forwarding these documents to be signed to you, we will also provide you with instructions on how each document needs to be treated.
