Setting up a limited liability company

A private limited liability company does not have minimum capital requirements. If you set up a public limited liability company, the minimum share capital is EUR 80,000.

The establishment is usually possible electronically, which is faster and less expensive than using a paper form. The key organs of a limited liability company are the shareholders’ General Meeting, Board of Directors and the Managing Director. You can also participate in your company’s General Meeting, be the Managing Director and a member of the Board of Directors, and thus take part in the decision making of your own company.

File the start-up notification of a limited liability company electronically through the Business Information System
