Ready to go to work within 24 hours and without risk – that is what we offer you with our shelf SE. Our companies are ready for immediate acquisition at the locations in Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt/Main and Munich. Our shelf-SE has not engaged in business activities and is free of inherited risks.
The Societas Europaea (SE) - "European stock company" - is available as a shelf company both with a monistic system as well as a dualistic system. You decide what is best for you and your purpose.
In our European stock companies with a monistic system, the corporate bodies consist of one board with executive and the general meeting.
In addition to the monistic system, we offer you the option of an SE with a dualistic system with a management board and supervisory board.
We can establish your desired company for you, either independently or in collaboration with you, upon request.
The shelf SEs from FORIS have already been established and entered in the commercial register – we bear the full foundation risk and deliver a risk-free and legally secure SE to you. You can start doing business right away.
In concrete terms, more than 200 SEs sold means that almost one fifth of all SEs registered in Germany were founded by us, FORIS. Based on this experience we offer you what is important to you: fast and flawless processing with the required legal certainty, quality and maximum flexibility – because we know what it means to have to be able to act on behalf of your company from one moment to the next. We provide you with support from the first to the very last step of the way.
Each shelf SE is provided with a formation account, where the share capital is fully paid-up.
After purchasing the shelf SE and the bank check required for transfer of the bank account, you can take over the account and dispose of the available credit balance.
This step requires legitimation from the bank.
If you do not wish to take over a bank account, then an order cheque will be issued for the company’s existing share capital and you can transfer this cheque to a new bank account opened by you for the company.
The founder account is not available for further business activities. The old account expires after the cheque has been cashed.
FORIS is active throughout Germany and offers you numerous founding locations for a shelf SE. You can currently choose from Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt/Main and Munich. Stay flexible.
We know you are in a hurry: That is why we keep the process short and uncomplicated. From reservation of your shelf SE to notarised transfer there are only 5 steps – and that within 24 hours.
Whether by telephone, form or online via our homepage - your reservation is without obligation, free of charge and valid for one week. You need a longer period? No problem, we are flexible.> Reservation request by e-mail
After reservation you will receive from us:
√ Questionnaire on acquisition of the shelf SE
√ Notification of registration from the commercial register
√ Certificate of incorporation and articles of association
√ Company’s current account statement
Upon receipt of the completed questionnaire, you will receive a personalized draft of a purchase and assignment agreement for acquisition of the shares. You return the signed copies to us and the contract is concluded with our countersignature.
You can transfer the purchase price for the shelf AG to a FORIS account. If you want to make a quick payment, we recommend an instant/express transfer. Alternatively, an attorney or tax advisor approved in Germany can provide us with confirmation of the purchase price payment deposited in his or her escrow account. The prerequisite is the previous, clearly declared purpose of such forwarding to us or a written, irrevocable and unconditional undertaking. In these cases the purchase price increases by €200 to cover our additional expenses.
Once the purchase price has been paid or its payment has been secured, we ensure free availability of the full share capital on the company’s account.
The originals of the sale and corporate documents as well as the bank confirmation of complete payment of the share capital will be sent to your notary by courier.
For the SE we exchange the previous corporate officers in accordance with your specifications.
ou make an appointment with a notary of your choice. There, the necessary changes in the articles of association are notarized – in particular the change of name and the new corporate purpose.
Your notary now submits registration of all of the changes for entry in the commercial register and sends us a simple copy of the deeds.
We wish you much success with your European stock company!
