Open-a-Subsidiary-in-Germany.jpgAccording to the German legislation, foreign investors who want to open a company in Germany can choose from several legal options, depending on the preferences the investors have when referring to taxation and many other aspects. One of the ways in which a company can be set up here is through a subsidiary, which is a company subordinated to the parent company that can also be established in another country. However, the subsidiary has a set of rights and can take various decisions without receiving the approval of the parent company. Businessmen who are interested to set up a subsidiary in Germany can receive assistance for the incorporation procedure from our team of German company formation representatives

German subsidiaries 

Entrepreneurs who want to set up a company here can operate through a subsidiary, which is a type of establishment that allows a more independent management than in the case of the branch office

Below you can see the main particularities of a subsidiary in Germany.

A subsidiary is established under a legal entity provided by the German legislation (usually, the limited liability company is preferred by both local and foreign businessmen) by drafting the statutory documents of the company - the memorandum and the article of association. 
A German subsidiary is registered following the procedures established for any other type of legal entity
This type of business representation must be registered with the German Commercial Register, where the investor should provide the following: 
the statutory documents of the company;
the minimum share capital (set out in accordance with the legal entity chosen by the investor);
a declaration of the parent company in which it states the decision to incorporate a subsidiary in Germany.
Our team of German company formation specialists can help businessmen with more details on the above mentioned documents. 

Taxation of a German subsidiary  

It is important to know that the foreign subsidiary will fall under the rules and regulations imposed for any other type of company operating on the local market, which means that the company will have to register for the following taxes
corporate tax;
trade tax;
value-added tax. 
Businessmen who want to receive further information on the procedure of opening a subsidiary in Germany can address to our team of German company incorporation agents for assistance.
