Costs for various types of companies: Remember that every start-up involves costs. These may vary depending on the type of company you wish to start. For example, do not forget the actual start-up costs, such as costs for the notary, fees for the commercial register, etc. Also bear in mind that you and your partners may already need to have the necessary minimum share capital at the time you start a GmbH or AG.

Business plan

Keeping an eye on the idea and the costs

The business plan is an important tool that identifies business opportunities together with the risks and potential they entail. Major components include the marketing plan and the financial plan. The business plan is particularly necessary for potential financing partners, as it significantly increases your company’s chances of success. Your offer is unique; your business plan should be as well. Work on it continuously; adapt it whenever necessary. Be careful to write your business plan in a way that appeals to the audience; it may be better to write ten rather than 50 pages. Not sure how to create a business plan? No problem – we will be happy to help you.
