What makes an Austrian shelf company GmbH so interesting?

You can of course also set up a company yourself in the form of an Austrian GmbH (limited liability company). Experience has shown that starting a new company will take a lot of time and effort, and it won’t be any cheaper in the end. Make use of our experience. We specialise in the formation of companies in Germany and Austria. Take over, i.e. buy an already established ‘prepared’ shelf company from us and you will be legally competent in a short time. This allows you to start your business activity in Austria at short notice.

You can’t get to market faster than this solution. Instead, you can focus on building your business, which is already difficult enough.

Since we are constantly establishing companies like a GmbH, we know all the pitfalls and know how to communicate efficiently with the authorities and other parties involved (notary, commercial register, tax office, etc.). There is no faster way to get a GmbH off the ground. Starting a new company from scratch would cost valuable time.

What distinguishes our Austrian shelf company GmbH?


The notarial establishment of the Austrian shelf company GmbH and all formalities have been completed, the notary fees for all establishment formalities have been paid by us. Thus, the GmbH is founded by us in advance (therefore shelf company GmbH).

Commercial register

The registration for the Austrian company register at the responsible commercial court in Vienna has taken place and the GmbH is entered in the commercial register, the fees have been paid.

Share capital 10.000 €

From 2024, the minimum share capital of an Austrian GmbH will only be € 10,000. All of our Austrian shelf GmbHs have this share capital and it is fully paid up.

the Austrian bank account for the shelf company GmbH is activated

Bank account

The GmbH’s bank account is opened at an Austrian or European bank (with IBAN). This may also be a notary trust account. The share capital of € 10,000 is fully paid in and the account remains with the bank for the GmbH even after the purchase. We have paid all bank charges. The completeness of the share capital is bindingly promised and proven by the current bank statement at the notary appointment. The capital is freely available to the GmbH even after the takeover. No costs were charged to the GmbH, so that the amount is available without restrictions.

Freedom from encumbrances

The Austrian shelf company GmbH has not been active so far. Apart from the formalities of the establishment, it has not taken any action. There are therefore no legal issues (e.g. obligations) and it is completely unencumbered.

Tax office

The tax number has been applied for and in most cases already issued by the Austrian tax office. The VAT identification number (Vat-Id) can also be issued within a few days so that it is already available to you at the time of the takeover. After the purchase, the tax office will be informed of the new status of the GmbH.

tax registration at the Austrian tax office has been done

Your notary appointment for the takeover is possible at short notice

Notary appointment – also available online

We prepare the notary appointment for the takeover (purchase of the GmbH shelf company) for you. The quickest way to do this is to have a notary appointment in Vienna that we have pre-booked in advance. We have regular, pre-booked notary appointments. There is no faster way to get a notary. You can also choose a notary of your choice. At the notary appointment, the new name of the GmbH (company name), the business purpose and, if applicable, the new address of record of the company will be determined. You will of course receive all the foundation documents and the account details.

A special feature in Austria is that the notarial act is also possible via online meeting. You only have to identify yourself beforehand by means of a video identification procedure via an online connection. So you do not need to travel extra to the notary appointment.
