Establishing a GmbH and SME company acquisition

Austria has a booming start-up and founder scene, and the limited liability company (GmbH) is the most popular legal form for founders. For good reason: a partnership agreement drawn up as a notarial deed creates clear rules of play between partners, liability is limited and a company purchase (colloquially also often referred to as a “company purchase”) can be carried out comparatively simply by assigning shares (share deal). There are also tax structuring possibilities with the GmbH. The company register creates transparency with regard to capitalisation and shareholdings in the company. Sole proprietors can also benefit from the advantages of the GmbH by founding their company as a one-man GmbH or transferring it to a one-man GmbH. Founding, growing, investing, buying, selling – we accompany our clients in their growth with our know-how in corporate law, company law and commercial law. From the foundation to the sale of a company.
