Company Seat? But not at home, please!
You want to become self-employed or found your own company in Germany? Apart from a promising idea and profound knowledge of the market and the trade, you need considerably more to get started successfully!
Having overcome the first obstacles from the necessary permits, the credit hurdles, the capital investment plan, the business plan up to the articles of association, the main concern of every entrepreneur – even BEFORE the notary appointment for the type of company to be founded - is to decide WHERE the future COMPANY SEAT should be located.
The least expensive and most simple solution is your own home. But this also means the loss of privacy. The question is whether, in the long run, it is desirable that every business partner automatically knows where you have your private residence. What if the customer knocks unexpectedly on the door of your home, although the kitchen is not cleaned up in this moment and you stumble over the toys of your juniors in the living room? Absolutely anyone can immediately assess your personality on the basis of your lifestyle, the number of your children, your pets, your living conditions - you disclose everything. Google Earth makes it easily possible, even for those who don´t have any detective experience. Will you, accordingly, be chosen as a business partner... or just not? And, after all, you never really find rest from your professional activities!
A further point is that a few weeks directly after the company foundation, the tax office requests proof, on the basis of your rental contract, that in your home there is a suitable, commercially usable office/commercial space (a corresponding permit also has to be noted in the land register!), in which you henceforth "exercise the tasks determining the company´s fortunes". This is demanded by law! And exactly this is, inter alia, legally defined not only in the MoMiG (the German Act to Modernize the Law on Private Limited Companies), but also in the German Fiscal Code, the German Commercial Code and in many other legal provisions.
Is this your strategy of success? If so, well… then register your business directly at your home – no matter if this address is professionally convincing, representative at any time day and night, and beneficial to your business objectives.
All this does not correspond to your ideal of an own business, of being self-employed?
