Company Registration in Germany | Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung (Gmbh)


The limited liability company is also known as “Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung”in Germany. The LLC is a separate entity separate from the individuals who are running it. Unlike single proprietorship or partnership based companies, the risk factor in the LLC is low.  In the LLC Company, if there is any claim made on the organization then the shareholders of the company just lose the value of the shares subscribed by them. However, in the single or partnership based setup, the risk is over the assets of the owners who are running the company. It is a major difference and benefit of company registration in Germany.

For technology, engineering, manufacturing, automotive, etc. companies planning to expand their branch business overseas should explore the options in Germany. It offers highly flexible banking and financial environment for foreign investments with a stable economy.
