US Companies - Setting up a business in Germany

Back to News

With the latest developments, it seems like the negotiations for the free trade agreement (TTIP) between USA and EU have failed.

Nevertheless, Germany is still attractive for US companies and it can be a good investment to setup a company in the heart of Europe. There is free movement of goods and economic trade which makes it easier to do business in the EU.

The most common type of German legal business formation is a GmbH. For this you need a shareholder – which can be a company or a private person. You also need a director (Geschäftsführer).This person does not need to be a resident of Germany or Europe.

By the way it is even possible to set up a Germany company (GmbH) without leaving the US with a minimum amount of effort. Our company, INDIPA, accompany you throughout the entire process – we prepare all the necessary documents (in English/German) and sign on your behalf at the notary/bank in Germany. From your side, it is just necessary that you visit a German consulate in the US and sign the documents.

We would be happy to help you with your venture in Germany and look forward to hearing from you!
