Company-Formation-in-Koln.jpgForeign businessmen who want to open a company in Koln are advised to invest in the fields of automotive and chemicals, as they are the most important sectors.

Regardless of the business field in which the company is incorporated, the investors should know that the procedure of company formation in Germany is applied in the same manner at the level of the entire country, including Koln. Our team of company formation representatives in Germany can offer more details and assistance to the investors who want to operate here. 

Register with the Company Register  

When opening a company in Germany, the investors will need to register with the Company Register, the main institution which provides information on all the companies registered in this country. It provides legal details on the businesses set up here, including their legal entity, information on their business addresses, current financial situation and many others. 

Choose a legal entity in Koln  

In order to set up a company here, the investors will need to designate a legal entity for their business. Depending on the size of the company, its operations and capital, businessmen can set up one of the following legal entities
joint stock company;
general partnership;
limited partnership
Investors should also be aware of the fact that they can also set up a sole proprietorship, which is recommended for businessmen who want to operate a company in their own name. However, this type of legal representation is indicated for small businesses, with fewer operations. It is also important to know that its taxation system differs greatly in comparison with other business forms. Our team of company formation experts in Germany can assist investors with more details on this business structure

    I consider that foreign investors should register a limited liability company (for most of the cases).
