Corporate Expansion to Germany
Given the increasing globalization of the business world and Germany’s position as one of the economic centres of Europe, company expansion to Germany represents an attractive opportunity for many foreign, internationally active companies to enter the lucrative German market.
If you are planning a company’s expansion to Germany, the first question to be asked concerning setting up a branch in Germany is how to choose the right organizational form. A distinction is made between establishing a subsidiary company and establishing an independent branch office or a dependent permanent establishment/representative office. The choice of the right organizational form depends strongly on your individual motives and goals associated with the expansion. At Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte, our team will outline the legal differences between the different organisational forms and ensure that our clients are fully aware of the steps, advantages and threats involved in all of them.
