Take off with a German shelf company: buy instead of founding

What makes a German UG shelf company so interesting?

You can of course also set up a company yourself in the form of a German UG (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. Take over, i.e. buy an already established ‘prepared’ shelf company from us and you will be legally competent in Germany in a short time. This allows you to start your business activity at short notice.

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

Since we are constantly establishing companies like a UG in Germany, 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 German UG off the ground. Starting a new company from scratch would cost valuable time.

What distinguishes our German shelf company UG?


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

Commercial register

The registration for the German commercial register at the responsible local court has taken place and the UG is entered in the commercial register, the fees have been paid.

Bank account

The UG’s bank account at a German bank branch (with a German IBAN) has been opened, the share capital of € 500 is fully paid in and the account remains with the bank for the UG 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 UG even after the takeover. No costs were charged to the UG, so that the amount is available without restrictions.

Freedom from encumbrances

The shelf company UG 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 German tax office tax identification number has been requested at the tax office. After the purchase, the tax office will be informed of the new status of the UG and you will receive the activation of the so-called sales tax signal at short notice.

Notary appointment

We prepare the notary appointment for the takeover (purchase of the UG shelf company) for you. The quickest way to do this is to have a notary appointment in Berlin 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 UG (company name), the business purpose and, if applicable, the new seat of the company will be determined. You will of course receive all the foundation documents and the account details.

Our offer: buy a shelf company from us

The purchase price of a UG shelf company is:

2.000 € + 500 € bank balance = 2.500 €

(tax-free according to § 4 UStG)

Please note: The purchase price of the shelf company consists of the company’s share capital and the administration fees (purchase price = fees + share capital). The purchase price covers all notary and formation costs of the shelf company up to the time of sale. The notarial and court costs of the transfer are always borne by the buyer.

We work for you nationwide. Your company can therefore take up residence at any location in Germany. Even if you are personally located outside Germany, this is not a problem. You can order the booking of a UG shelf company online from the comfort of your home. To do so, please fill out the order form and send it to us.

Additional options

Option managing director

You can keep the company’s existing managing director for the time being (with a corresponding fee agreement). As a result, the company remains fully capable of acting without interruption, even externally. You are welcome to replace the managing director with your own managing director (e.g. yourself) at a later date.

The monthly fee for the Managing Director is € 600 plus VAT. The fee is settled directly between your company and the UG managing director on a monthly basis. The costs for this are fully deductible for tax purposes as operating costs.

On request with registered office in Berlin

A demanding business environment often requires an appropriate external presentation of your company. But you don’t have to rent an entire office right away. The UG shelf company was founded with a registered office in Berlin and has a Berlin business address (headquarters). If you wish, you can leave the company at its current address in Berlin for as long as you want. You simply conclude a lease agreement with us.

With this option, we offer you a registered office in Berlin with the following service:

  • The company is already entered in the Commercial Register at this address. A transfer to another district court is not necessary, so that valuable time is saved.
  • Same is the registration with the tax office and trade office at this address.
  • We receive your mail and forward it once a week.
  • You can be assigned a telephone number that you can forward to a telephone number in Germany.

Your business address will thus serve as a representative company address on all your business papers, business cards and website. There is no easier way to start your business in Germany.

The monthly costs for rent and the listed service are € 250 plus VAT.

If you have a particular motivation or purpose in purchasing the shelf company, please consult your lawyer or tax advisor.
