Why a shelf company AG (Aktiengesellschaft: Joint-Stock Company)?

Founding a stock corporation is much more complex than founding a GmbH. But sometimes things have to be done quickly. That is why the takeover of a joint-stock company that has already been founded is a good idea. This allows you to become active on the market much faster and benefit from the high reputation of a German stock corporation.

We are constantly founding corporations. We know all the pitfalls and know how to communicate efficiently with the authorities and other parties involved (notary, bank, commercial register, tax office, etc.). There is no faster way to get a joint-stock company up and running. Starting a new one would cost you a lot of valuable time.

What distinguishes our shelf company AG?


The notarial formation of the stock corporation and all formalities have been completed. The share capital of the joint stock company amounts to € 50,000. All shares have been taken over by the founder in the form of no-par value registered shares. The notary fees and all other incorporation costs have been paid by us.

Appointment of the corporate bodies of the joint-stock company

The three members of the Supervisory Board (corresponding to the minimum number) were appointed in accordance with the provisions of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). The Supervisory Board elected the Chairman of the Supervisory Board and appointed the Executive Board (one member).

Bank account

The bank account of the Joint-Stock company is opened at a German bank branch (with German IBAN). At the time of the takeover of the Joint-Stock Company by you, the share capital in the amount of € 50,000 is fully paid into the bank account. The completeness of the share capital is bindingly assured. It will be proven at the notary appointment by the current bank account statement. The bank account together with the capital is at the free disposal of the joint-stock company in its full amount even after the takeover.

Commercial register

The joint-stock company was registered with the commercial register and is successfully entered there. All the necessary documents were provided by the notary: articles of association, bank confirmation, minutes of the first supervisory board meeting, founding report, founding audit report and assurances from those involved. The commercial register fees are paid by us.

Freedom from encumbrances

The German 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.
