Questions and Answers on Starting a Sole Proprietorship

Does a sole proprietorship have to be entered in the commercial register?2024-07-15T14:11:56+02:00

As soon as the activity assumes a certain commercial scope, registration as an e.K. is mandatory.

As a rule of thumb, a trading company with an annual turnover of over 250,000 euros must be registered. For companies in the service sector, a threshold value of approx. 150,000 euros applies.

Otherwise, as a sole trader you do not necessarily need to be entered in the commercial register.

Some clients prefer the e.K., as an entry in the commercial register appears more serious and professional, which may have advantages over the contractual partner.

Is the founder of a sole proprietorship personally liable?2024-07-15T14:10:22+02:00

Yes, as a sole trader and also as a Kaufmann e.K., you have direct and unlimited liability with your business and private assets.

There is no possibility of limiting your liability. Public liability and pecuniary loss liability insurance “only” covers you against third-party claims for damages in the amount of the sum insured.

Is there an advantage of a sole proprietorship over a UG?2024-07-15T14:09:42+02:00

The bureaucratic burden is lower for a sole proprietorship. Small businesses do not need to be entered in the commercial register, for example. There is also no accounting obligation.

How much is the trade license fee?2024-07-15T14:14:46+02:00

The fee charged by the trade licensing office for registering a sole proprietorship is between approx. 10.00 and 65.00 EUR for the client. In addition, there may be costs for the submission of a police clearance certificate and a trade license, etc., if further documents are required in individual cases.

What are the approximate notary and registration fees for registering as an e.K.?2024-07-15T14:08:16+02:00

The notary and registration fees for an e.K. company together amount to approx. 300.00 EUR.

Does the review of the e.K. name under company law also correspond to a review under competition law?2024-07-15T14:04:02+02:00

No, it is always advisable to check the e.K. name / an e.K. logo or a sole proprietorship logo under competition law. This is independent of the company law review. We recommend that you commission a separate trade mark search for the DE trade mark or for the EU trade mark or a trade mark application with us.
