Germany


Germany is one of the richest and most populous countries in the European continent. Located between Poland and France, with Baltic Sea in the north and Alps in the south, the country is a backbone of the European Union’s economy and a strong player on the global political scene.
Berlin, the largest city and capital of Germany, has more than 3,700,000 inhabitants. The country is a member of the Eurozone and in 1999 replaced Deutsche Mark with the common European currency, euro.
The most commonly used business structure by far is limited liability company (Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung or GmbH) with minimum share capital of 25,000 EUR. A single shareholder is enough to establish this type of entity, but they need to pay up at least a quarter of the initial capital. In-kind contributions are subject to verification. Company shareholders need to draw up Articles of Association and appoint a director who will manage company affairs. German companies are registered in Commercial Register (Handelsregister). German company law provisions are stipulated in Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch). All business entities are required to prepare annual financial statements that need to be approved by a Shareholders’ Meeting. In case of medium and large entities, the statements need to be accompanied by a management report and are subject to audit.
Corporate tax rate for German enterprises is 15%. 5.5% surcharge (“solidarity tax”) on income tax, capital gains tax and corporate tax applies. All companies are also subject to (local) trade tax calculated on income exceeding 10,000 EUR. Different trade tax rates are effective depending on the municipality where your business is registered. Loss carry-backs are permitted up to the amount of 1,000,000 EUR. 25% dividend tax applies, with the exception of the EU parent-subsidiary directive.
Germany is the world’s fifth largest economy and the largest economy of Europe. The biggest drive of the GDP is the service sector. The country is also one of the biggest global exporters of good and services. Important industry sectors are vehicles, electronics and pharmaceuticals. Many of the world-known trade fairs take place in the country, such as those held in Hannover, Cologne and Frankfurt.
Germany is a federal republic with a bicameral Parliament. The most important legal act is The Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany. The head of the German government is the Chancellor, while the head of state is the Federal President. The Chancellor is elected by the Bundestag, while the candidate is proposed by the Federal President.
Many German banks are known internationally. The largest ones in terms of market share are Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank, DZ Bank and KFW Bankgruppe (state-owned development bank). Savings banks (Sparkasse) are also present, as well as some co-operative banks, such as Volksbanken Raiffeisenbanken.

Welcome message


ShelfCompanies24.com is one of the leading providers of ready made companies and special purpose vehicles (SPVs) as well as other investment structures delivering outstanding service at very reasonable prices and at highest speed. We have setup and sold hundreds of companies. Our company is considered trustworthy and reliable by our clients as well as by many professional law firms and tax advisers.

What is very unique in our style of operation is the fact that we have our ready made companies already registered in many various countries. All other providers have one address where they keep their shelf companies registered so that client wishing to buy more than one company with different address cannot be satisfied.

Many competitors may be offering lower prices however this always is at the expense of service and provided company quality. Our core activity is company formation and sale of ready made companies thus all members of our team have appropriate professional background. Our shelf companies are formed in accordance to all relevant laws and procedures by the team of qualified and experience professionals and lawyers. On the other hand the maintenance of our ready made companies is performed by licensed and proficient accountants and tax advisers. Therefore our clients can be sure that a shelf company they buy from us is clean, with no debts or tax issues, is formed professionally and its Articles of Association are of high quality.

Our main clients are private investors, traders, law, audit, accountancy and tax advisory firms as well as banks and investment funds. Throughout the years of activity Shelfcompanies24 has been enjoying the reputation of the fastest and most responsive shelf company provider.
Our ready made companies have been formed and maintained by our team. Therefore we always guarantee their quality and that they are debt free, with no trading history and consequently riskless to build new ventures on.

Our services do not finish on the sale of shelf companies or company formation. We provide also many other related and necessary services so that we can be treated as a one stop shop in a business setup in many countries. We are also experts in tailor made company formation as well as compliance and registering various changes within the company like director appointments and dismissals, company name change, share capital increase or decrease, company address change and many other issues.

We also provide tax and legal advisory services that are inevitably required by the businesses. We cooperate with many reputable tax and legal advisory firms whose services we can also recommend when the nature of the problem requires certain field specialist engagement.

For those clients who have a need to present their companies documents in foreign countries we provide apostille and translation services. After company sale documents can simply stay with us for the purpose of their apostille or legalisation and sworn translation to any desired language. This service is mainly required when there is a need to open a foreign bank account for a shelf company.

Furthermore we have agreements with many different accounting offices so that we are able to offer a wide choice of the particular accountant that will be dealing with client’s company. Also in case two or more of our clients are trading partners we can ensure that their books will be handled by separate and independent accountants.

Ultimately we can also support with a procedure of liquidation/bankruptcy of a company if a client wishes to withdraw their business presence. In this case we can either manage the process of liquidation or bankruptcy on client’s behalf or simply just dispose the assets and takeover the company so that the clients can enjoy fast exit.

Testimonials  

  • The company delivered a ready-to-go business, with VAT and EU VAT registration. Paperwork and the whole re-registration process was handled efficiently. I recommend this to anyone looking for a no-hassle company acquisition.

    Lionel Ronald

  • Company name of your choice? Check. Accounting services? Check. Help with tax authorities? Check. Finding a translator? Check. What can I say, these people are great and can help you with just anything.

    Sarah Duke

  • We needed to start building our presence in Poland fast, and a ready-made company seemed like the best option. We got presented with several location choices, picked the company name, signed some paperwork and were good to go. We got a company that was VAT-registered, with multiple bank accounts, just as we wanted.

    Jon Kim

  • Thank you for all the help. Your after-sale support is what sets you apart from the competition. It was important for me to get comprehensive company services at one place, with accounting, banking, tax issues handled for me, etc. I got everything I needed.

    Garret Lopez

  • I really recommend this website if you are looking for a shelf company in Poland. The companies are already registered, with no history and all documentation in place. This is really a great solution if you want to start your business ASAP. And the range of available post-sale services is just amazing.

    Francis Klein

  • Thank you for your support! Your advice was invaluable. Polish tax and legal provisions can really be a pain in the neck, but with your help I am able to get going.

    Eugene Syracuse
