Sale of limited company (“AG”) and limited liability company (“GmbH”)
Shell companies possess no more assets. Therefore, they can be sold without mayor problems. Due to complex regulations and risks, experts (especially tax services) look at shell company trading with skepticism. The acquisition of a shell company can become soon too risky for an non-experienced buyer due to high risks and complexity. Numerous risks may appear only after years. The requirements of a buyer can in most cases fully be taken into consideration with the expertise of a reputable accounting company. Because we take care of the sold companies after sale in numerous cases, we prefer to solve any problems before the sale instead of burdening them to the purchaser. The companies all have minimal operating activities, a fixed-line telephone number and, in some cases, a homepage, and are therefore not regarded as fully liquidated shell companies under commercial law. For tax law purposes, different rules apply in some cases.
