On Wednesday 20 May the Dutch-German Chamber of Commerce (DNHK) will be organizing the seminar entitled ‘Starting up a successful business in Germany’.

CMS Derks Star Busmann is one of the partners of this seminar. In this context, Ton Heebing, lawyer and partner at CMS DSB, will be giving a lecture on setting up a business/legal entity in Germany.

Entering a foreign market gives rise to many questions and challenges. Whoever acquires knowledge in good time and avoids making beginners’ mistakes can save a lot of money and be more successful in his business straight away. Consequently this seminar aims to provide knowledge using practical questions. These include themes such as: what legal forms exist in Germany? What are the differences, also from a tax point of view, between a sole trader/partnership on the one hand, and a company with share capital, known as GmbH, on the other hand? When does a Dutch business in Germany become liable to tax? What are the financial advantages and disadvantages of a subsidiary in Germany (GmbH) compared to a permanent establishment? What questions are important with a joint venture? What does one need to bear in mind when setting up a company in Germany? How do the German financial institutions operate? Aspects relating to taxes and national insurance schemes when taking on personnel will also be dealt with.

This workshop is intended for management executives from the business sector who want to do business in Germany or who are already active in the German market. A maximum of 20 persons may take part.
