The UG (haftungsbeschränkt) is a special form of a GmbH (limited liability co). That’s why the UG is also known as the Mini-GmbH or 1 Euro GmbH. Of course, it doesnt cost 1 Euro, but with Octary it costs a lot less than the rest!

The biggest difference between these two company forms is the amount of share capital that is put in. While a UG can be formed with just a euro, the formation of a GmbH requires 25,000 Euros. The UG can be converted to a fully blown GMBH once the share capital of 25,000 is paid up.

We take care of everything so all you need to do is pay, sign at your local notary, who will then send to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, or equiv in the USA, who will then send to the agent in Germany, who will in turn form your company.

You can use the new UG or GMBH to purchase property, purchase a car etc in Germany, or abroad for that matter. The German tax system is fair and therefore Germany is a good place to form and run a company from.

If you have no physical presence in Germany, we can offer a registered address service and forwarding to your address anywhere in the world at reasonable cost, just ask - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
