IdentifierTechnical keyDescription
Business Registration Number (Germany)DE_BRNBusiness Registration Number is been assigned to the business entity want to setup business in Germany. It is also known as Company Registration number. For the registration of a firm should be determined: the name of the company, the list of the partners or owners, the manager of the company, the registration address of the company, the amount of the charter capital. While determining the name of the company attention should be paid to the possible existence of a trademark registered with the same word, which can lead to legal problems later on. Any name can be chosen for the company, if such has not received state registration already. Subsequently, parallel to the registration of the company, should set about the registration of a trademark or a brand as well. The registration of a brand is a more progressive legal protection for differentiation of the company’s goods and services and for shaping confidence around the consumers. The selection of the company's address is conditioned by the opportunity of receiving appropriate notifications, as well as the selection of the administrative domain consequently selects the tax service authority, where the company is being registered. The tax registration of the company is being implemented from the moment of the company's state registration by the means of automated system and no more there is a need, like the past, to visit a tax authority for the purpose of the company's tax registration. For the registration of the company's address, no documents of confirming the appropriate right are required: a certificate of ownership or lease: that is the registration is being exercised according to a statement.
