Consultinghouse's Business Incorporation Methodology for Germany


The timeframe to have a new company successfully incorporated in Germany is subject to the individual business objectives as well as the complexity of the underlaying business model. Of course, to get a signature from a German notary eventually might go very quickly, however, the German banks as well as the German authorities will most likely challenge foreign companies that wish to expand their market to Germany with topics as follows:

  • Business Plan, including financial forecast
  • Money laundry prevention
  • Background checks of (foreign) shareholder and managing directors
  • Proven track record that the company has historically already engaged into serious business relationships with German and European partners
  • etc.

To provide a rough guideline, approximately four working weeks have to be taken into consideration. The actual timeframe is subject to the quality of collaboration between Consultinghouse and the expanding company.

Consultinghouse has got the experience to support expanding companies, as well as foreign investors in designing a tailor-made business plan which will minimize risk and at the same time, guarantee a successful implementation of the individual market entry strategy.


Expanding a business to another market is a serious undertaking. For this reason, expanding companies need to take into consideration that the incorporation of a business in Germany represents an initial investment, however, the actual cost drivers to seriously develop a business in Germany are mainly related to ongoing front-, and back-office activities.

Front-office activities:

  • Marketing
  • Business Development
  • Pre-, & Post Sales 

Back-office activities:

  • Monthly accounting and financial reporting
  • Monthly payroll
  • Monthly compliance
  • Communications & collaboration with German authorities and institutes
  • Tax & Legal services
  • Year-end accounting

Our objective is to grow with our new clients. For the sake for the protection of our existing clients we also need to keep the risk to a minimum at the same time. For this reason, we are committed to working strongly together with expanding companies to carefully prepare their German market entry initiative.

Together with you, we will be making sure that companies that seek to enter the German market have an individual market entry plan as well as all required information available to make their individual market expansion strategy for Germany a success.
