Remote purchasing a company in Germany

Remote Purchase of a Readymade Company

The law expects as a standard that the purchaser(s) and new director(s) personally visit the notary to celebrate the founding of their new company. There the new shareholders sign the articles of association and the new directors apply to register the new company. Each director also has to affirm that he is in good standing.

At times, person living abroad might consider it too costly to come to Germany for a whole day just to execute the signatures with the notary and one hour later go online to register with a bank.

As we also embrace economically wise approaches, we developed a solution with our notary how to legally avoid the purchaser(s) and new director(s) having to travel for this one hour ceremony. The exact approach depends on how many founders will be opening the company.

Remote purchasing will be a one-step procedure. After sending you a draft to "okay", and you approve it, we will go to the notary without power of attorney. Does this sound bogus? Relax! Legally nothing has yet happened. Only after you formally approve, our representation at our notary will be valid and legally binding.

In collaboration with the notary we will organize you the formal approval as well as the director's affirmations and let you sign them. Some of these documents need to be signed and some also notarized and legalized. When forwarding these documents to be signed to you, we will also provide you with instructions on how each document needs to be treated.
