Telecommunications-company-in-GermanyThe telecommunication industry in Germany is very important for the local economy. The field is sustained by the local government through various policies, which are also aiming at attracting foreign direct investments. Businessmen who want to establish a telecommunications business in Germany should know that the registration process is performed by following the general rules available for other types of business, but it is necessary to complete specific steps (for example, to receive compulsory licenses issued for this field). Our team of German company formation representatives can offer assistance for the incorporation of a telecommunications company on the local market.

 

Register a telecommunication business in Germany  

 
When opening a company in Germany, one of the first aspects which should be resolved refers to the type of structure under which the company will be able to perform business activities on the local market. Investors can set up from small companies to large corporations, depending on their investment plans and budget for the project. However, most of the German companies are registered as small and medium sized enterprises, usually incorporated as a limited liability company (LLC); our team of German company incorporation agents can provide more details on the business forms available here. 
 
In order to set up a LLC, the investor will need a budget for the share capital necessary at the incorporation, with a value of minimum EUR 25,000. Germany allows an LLC to be represented by only one shareholder
 
German businesses are also required to register with the local tax authorities. As a general rule, most of the companies have to pay the following taxes: 
 
municipal trade tax;
income tax for the company’s employees;
corporate tax. 
 

Licenses for the telecommunications companies in Germany  

 
Companies set up as a telecommunications business are required to register for a license. Under the rules of the Telecommunications Act, companies which are considered operators (providers of telecommunications services) are required to obtain a license
