Establish-a-SPV-Company-in-Germany.jpgAmongst the numerous legal entities foreign investors can choose from when opening a company in Germany, the local legislation also stipulates the special purpose vehicle (SPV), which is incorporated following the regulations of the German law. However, this type of company, usually registered as a separate legal entity of a foreign company, must also respect different incorporation rules outside the requirements of the commercial legislation. German SPVs are registered for securitization purposes and, starting with 2005, this legal entity can be incorporated following the True Sale Initiative (TSI) platform, available for various types of institutions in the field of securitization. Investors who want to register a SPV here may request for more details from our specialists in company formation in Germany

Our company formation representatives in Germany can assist in this procedure and it is necessary to know that, according to the local law, two managing directors of the SPV have to be two employees of the TSI Services, which can provide many advantages to the company
