Purchasing a shelf UG means being able to do business immediately

The shelf UGs from FORIS have already been founded and entered in the commercial register – we bear the full foundation risk and deliver a risk-free and legally secure AG to you. You can get started immediately.

Our experience is your advantage

In concrete terms this means 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.

Bank account in two variants

Each shelf UG is provided with a formation account from one of our partner banks, primarily Postbank.


In order to be able to flexibly respond to your wishes we have two bank models on offer for you.

Variant 1: Transferable bank account

After purchasing the shelf UG 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.

Variant 2: Credit transfer by order cheque

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.

Purchase price payment

You can transfer the purchase price for the shelf UG 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 €100 to cover our additional expenses.
