Instant Company Formation in Germany
In contrast to other law offices, we apply modern technology to provide you with an instant and inexpensive company formation process – digitized and standardized. Upon payment, you will receive all of our documents for founding within two German working days. In contrast to our competition, we take care of you. Because we specialize in the needs of foreign investors and start-ups, we will provide you with detailed instructions for every step.
How to start? Simply fill out this form and provide us with the founding details. Please respect that inside this standardized formation, we will not consult you on questions regarding which company form is best for you, or the tax implications. If you want an initial consultation, we will be gladly provided this for € 100 ex VAT. Simply arrange it by clicking this sentence. In case you want a quick complementary call from us, please let us know in the box "my questions" and we will call you.
How does the process work? You are asked to fill out the form below. That is all. While we receive your information and while payment is being made, we will draft your company's articles of association and all other required documents which you will receive within two German working days. In the event of a remote founding, i.e. the director not coming to Berlin, we will connect with a notary for the relevant documents that you have had to sign in front of him.
This form covers all standard company formation scenarios that do not require discussion or consultation. For an individualized formation, please calculate the provided fees below and consider an hourly consultation fee. Based on your provided information, we individualize the company structure to tailor your new German company according to your specific needs. When interested in an individualized set-up, please fill out the form and then mention in the box "my questions" that you want to to arrange additional communication.
Our standardized offer for setting up your company instantly:
- testing legitimacy of your selected company's name,
- fine-tuning and testing legitimacy of the line of business for the articles of association,
- drafting the bilingual company formation documents, which you will be requested to okay prior to the notary,
- organizing the notary,
- payment of the notary's fees,

- introducing you to up to two banks.
Why do we prefer to collect and cover the fees of the authorities? Simple! We want to take care of you and expedite the proceedings. Payments inside Germany arrive faster. We will argue with them if the fees are incorrect. One less detail for you to worry about.
Optional refers to possible services that come right after founding. This approach caters to those who do not want or need further help. If your company takes out a virtual office you might not have to register the company with the trade office. Follow the link to each optional measure of support to determine whether you need it or not. Does your business require a permission? We do not know yet what your business entails, so we cannot say in advance.
