the legal framework in germany: Taxes, Company forms and more to start your business

A foreign market, a foreign legal system - setting up a company in Germany can certainly seems like a major challenge and might lead to a series of questions: “Which legal form should we choose for our company? What aspects related to German tax law do we have to consider? Data protection appears to be a major issue in Germany, what does this mean for us?” However, this does not have to be the case. This webinar is designed to provide an overview of important aspects in terms of corporate law, tax law and data protection law that should be taken into account when setting up a company in Germany, making it easier to get started.
