Company formation and funding
Free start for startups
When good ideas become viable solutions and high-selling products that bring in money in the long run, there is usually good preparation and planning behind them. The preparation time is exciting for any budding entrepreneur. At the same time, it is accompanied by many questions, worries and fears. We support you with all questions and during all phases of the company formation.
Well advised. Founding a company is one of our hobbies. We too were founders once and can still remember our first beginnings. We know exactly: even if the foundation has one or two surprises in store, conscientious planning is the basis for sustainable success. We are happy to accompany you in this exciting phase. As legal, tax and business consultants, we are at your side with all your questions, competently, with heart and hand. We check your idea, ask critical questions and take a close look at your goals and ideas.
Well positioned. We offer you the opportunity to effectively support you in the start-up process by applying for funding. We advise you on the choice of legal form, provide you with comprehensive information on possible liability risks and work with specialized lawyers to draw up the necessary contracts. Of course, we also take care of the registration of your company with the authorities involved and answer any questions you may have:
- Am I a merchant now? Do I have to register my company in the commercial register?
- When was the company founded? Important: The preparatory negotiations are already part of the foundation.
- How is the income likely to develop? What tax payments can be expected?
- How is profit determined? Is an accounting required or is an income statement sufficient?What are the costs for employees? Where does this have to be registered - and can I really afford it?
- Small business owners and sales tax: what is possible? What is useful? How does the decision affect invoicing and business expenses?
- Target or actual taxation: which solution is cheaper? We'll sort it out for you. If necessary, we will also make the relevant applications
