Foreign investors

Start-up consultancy for foreign companies and investors

The German legislator has realized that foreign entrepreneurs and investors make an important contribution to the economic success in Germany. Latest simplifications in the legislation make the start easier. According to applicable version dated 01.08.2012 of section 21 of the Residence Act (AufenthG) a residence permit can be issued for the purpose of self-employment, if a (simple) economic interest or a (simple) regional need exists. A certain minimum investment and a minimum number of jobs to be created are no longer included in the law.

Network of consultants at your side

However, many legal, fiscal and economic questions remain. Your business idea, coupled with good advice, ensures optimal conditions for a successful realization in Germany. PNHR is with its network of lawyers, tax consultants and auditors the right partner for foreign investors, regardless of size or industry. Also our contacts to German banks are excellent.
