When talked about the economy in Germany, the significant spending power, innovative investment climate, strategic location at the heart of a dense transport network and highly skilled workers are among the many strength that position Germany as a business location.

Would you like to set up a business by yourself, or do you prefer to team up with others? Will you start up a company from scratch or buy an existing business?

A business idea needs a good business plan. Before you start your own business, you need to register your planned activity. You do that either with the trade office (Gewerbeamt) or the tax office (Finanzamt), depending on the nature of your business. The next logical step will be to find out the government incentives available as well as proceed with the company incorporation process.

There is a lot of support for startup founders in Germany. The federal government of Germany offers a broad spectrum of business incentive to companies, including loans and grants, depending on the nature of the company and its intended location. Capital investment grants of up to 50% to SMEs are available in some areas of Germany. Sometimes, the local government incentives are offered in the form of beneficial tax rates but these are not generally available in the major cities.
