Buy a German Ready Made Company & avoid liability traps

Buying a Vorrats GmbH is the best way to get your new GmbH ready to act quickly and legally. Our stock formed GmbHs save you time and take the stress out of company formation. Vorrats GmbHs are already formed, registered in the commercial register and are immediately available for purchase. The articles of association for Vorrats-GmbH and the incorporation documents are available in German and English. If required, the English version can be removed at any time during the acquisition. We establish our GmbH-Vorrats companies at the most important business locations in Germany and, if required, also at your desired location in Germany. In some cases, we set up holding structures that enable us to transfer an entire group of companies.

Foundation risk already assumed

If you buy the existing Vorrats GmbH, we have already assumed the formation risk. All Vorrats GmbHs are done as open and permissible Vorrats formations. Your Vorrats GmbH, unlike the shell GmbH, is not yet economically active. We guarantee that you are free from any liabilities.

Buying a Ready Made Company (Shelf GmbH) in Germany

Youco24 is active throughout Germany and offers you the Vorrats GmbH at many foundation locations. Our GmbH Vorrats companies are registered in the major German commercial registers of Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Cologne, Mannheim and Stuttgart.

If you prefer a location other than that of your GmbH, you can open a permanent establishment immediately in accordance with the Tax Code and the Trade Regulation Act. This applies regardless of the commercial register and the location of the Vorrats GmbH. Furthermore, we can move Vorrats GmbH to a location of your choice or establish a GmbH there. Just contact us.

100 % of paid-up share capital

The share capital of Vorrats-GmbH amounts to EUR 25,000 and is deposited with a German bank. This amount remains untouched on the bank account of the company after the takeover and is at your disposal.

Buying a German Ready Made Company (Shelf GmbH) with bank account

On the bank account of the limited liability company (LLC) the share capital is fully paid. In order to offer you the best solution, we cooperate with different banks to establish our Vorrats limited liability companies. You can choose to close or take over the bank account. If you want to close the bank account quickly, we offer a unique account model with an easy closing option, the "check option".

If you would like to reserve Vorrats Ltd, please let us know which account model you prefer so that we can offer you the Vorrats Ltd that suits you best.

For the establishment of our Vorrats-GmbH we opened an account with the Hoerner Bank and paid in the share capital of EUR 25,000 there. You will receive an order cheque from us, which your managing director can cash at your house bank. Once the cheque has been cashed, the company's foundation account is automatically closed and is no longer available for payment transactions.  

Our Vorrats-GmbH has a bank account which is capable of being taken over and which can also function as a payment transaction account in the future. The existing credit balance of the Vorrats-GmbH is available to you after the KYC/legitimation process of the bank has been completed.

Vorrats GmbH kaufen - Our procedure

We understand that you are in a hurry. We keep the process simple and fast. From the reservation of your German GmbH Vorrats company to the notarial takeover is only three steps. Fast and professional: Our Vorrats GmbH purchase procedure has been tried and tested for years. It guarantees a fast and reliable takeover of your German Vorrats GmbH.

Step 1 - Reservation

You reserve your German Ready Made Company (Shelf GmbH) free of charge and without obligation

For your GmbH reservation we are at your disposal by phone and e-mail. Or you can reserve online via our website. Ideally you already know whether you want to take over the company's bank account or rather close it and open your own account at your bank (cf. account models). 

We will contact you immediately after receipt of your reservation and offer you the appropriate Vorrats-GmbH.

Step 2 - Purchase price

Prepayment or security

As soon as you send us the completed questionnaire, we will prepare the acquisition of your Vorrats-GmbH. You can choose from the following options for the purchase price payment or its securing:

  • Cash in advance: The purchase price for the Vorrats-GmbH is paid to us in advance
  • Confirment: A law firm, tax consultancy or auditing firm established in Germany is strongly in favour of paying the purchase price of Vorrats-GmbH and assumes personal joint liability
  • Suspensive condition: The transfer of the shares in Vorratsgesellschaft GmbH is subject to the condition precedent of payment of the purchase price


Once we have all your necessary details, the notarisation of the purchase and assignment agreement will take place.

Step 3 - Notary appointment

Notarisation of the purchase contract and registration in the commercial register
The notary public certifies the GmbH-Share-Purchase prepared by us, the resolutions on the amendment of the GmbH articles of association (in particular new management, new name and new corporate purpose) and certifies the commercial register application of the new managing director. He then submits the documents to the commercial register.

FAQ about the Shelf GmbH

What is the difference to a shell GmbH, is it possible to buy a GmbH with a managing director, at which locations is the limited liability company located and is it worth buying a GmbH instead of founding one. We answer the most frequently asked questions about the Vorrats GmbH in our FAQs.

A Vorrats GmbH is a limited liability company founded on "stock / stockpile", which has been registered in the commercial register and has not yet started any economic activity. The Vorrats GmbHs established by Youco24 can be taken over immediately by an acquirer without having to go through the entire establishment process themselves.

As a rule, our shelf GmbHs do not yet have a tax number because they are not registered by the tax authorities. After the acquisition, you register the company with the relevant tax office for the first time, apply for a tax number and, if applicable, a VAT ID. The tax number is issued by the tax office where the company is managed. In Berlin, different tax offices are responsible, which then reassign an existing tax number if necessary. With the start of the commercial activity, the Advance sales tax return ...to be delivered. 

We only sell German Ready Made Shelf Companies (Shelf GmbH), i.e. companies which, unlike the so-called shell companyhave never been economically active.

GmbH shell companies are burdened with risks due to their previous burdens from previous activities. Therefore we do not sell shell companies and do not buy such companies. Our shelf companies are guaranteed to be free of liabilities to third parties.

Yes, because you choose your own notary's office. It can be located in any place in Germany. If you would like a recommendation or would like us to contact the notary's office for you, please feel free to contact us.

If you need a GmbH quickly and reliably, the acquisition of a Vorrats GmbH is the better way compared to founding your own new company:

Since a Vorrats GmbH is already registered in the commercial register, it can be taken over at any time and become active immediately. A Vorrats GmbH represents a "turnkey" solution, i.e. you alone determine the date on which you want to start with the company

The risk of delays in the establishment procedure is eliminated

Due to the fully paid up share capital, our Vorrats limited companies offer you protection from personal liability from the outset. Potential personal liability of shareholders or directors due to breach of capital raising rules is excluded by using a Vorrats company

Last but not least: By leaving the foundation to us, you have more time to concentrate on the actual issues of your business

In Cologne and Frankfurt am Main there is the possibility that we personally attend the notary appointments for the notarization of Vorrats GmbH for a small fee upon request.

Incidentally, we will be represented at the appointment by proxy by a person whom you have selected and named to us. This can also be yourself.

The reservation of Vorrats GmbH is free of charge. There are also no costs for an extension of the reservation period.

We take over the entire formation costs and costs of ongoing administration until the company is sold - not the shelf company, as is the case with some competitors.

We guarantee that the share capital of the company is fully paid up and is available undiminished on the account of the company at the time of purchase. We will prove this to you in the notary appointment through a current balance confirmation from the bank.
