The aim of this brochure is to provide foreign employers who wish to invest in Dresden
or operate a branch establishment there with information on those issues of a legal and
procedural nature which are of relevance to setting up and running a business in
Germany. It provides specific detail on partners and the authorities responsible for this
particular area. It also contains useful information for foreigners who are employed in
Dresden or who propose to set up their own business.

Our Internet website www.dresden.de/wirtschaft will also provide you with detailed and
extensive information on Dresden as a commercial and scientific centre as well as on
the steps which have to be taken in order to base a company in Dresden, or establish
one there, with special information for the foreign employer.

   1. Advice on setting up and establishing a business
There are various institutions available to employers and those interested in setting up in
business on their own with advice on the procedures involved in establishing a business,
trading and industrial locations, grant-aid possibilities and issues of relevance to
construction law and permits. It is advisable to make use of the advisory facilities which
are available, above all in the light of the considerable grant-aid potential which exists
and which must often be applied for prior to commencement of a project.

Your first port of call is the Amt für Wirtschaftsförderung or Office of Industrial
Development, which will point you in the direction of all of the other authorities and
institutions of relevance in your particular case.

    2. Legal fundamentals
As an employer, legally you come under the category of “self-employed”. Depending on
the legal form of your business and certain criteria of specific relevance to your line of
work, you are classified either as a trader, a freelancer or are involved in some aspect of
agriculture. This classification triggers certain distinctions from the point of view of
commercial and taxation law.
                                                                                          6


     Industrial law

Germany acknowledges the fundamental principle of freedom of trade. Anyone wishing
to set up in business must notify the authority responsible for the location in question of
such intention. Certain types of trading activity are subject to licence or require to be
monitored by designated authorities. Please contact the

     Law pertaining to handicrafts

Up until now, a strict policy has been implemented of only permitting those persons or
private companies/partnerships entered in the Register of Trades to engage in the
independent operation of a handicrafts’ business. Entry in the Register is possible
only if evidence of having passed the examination to qualify for the status of “Master
Craftsman” for the trade in question or for a related trade can be furnished. No such
examination is required for the running of a business which can be classified as
resembling a handicrafts’ business, but the:

E-Mail: info@hwk-dresden.de, www.hwk-dresden.de

must be notified of its existence without delay.

Citizens of member States of the EU/EEA may apply for exemption from the
obligation to be entered in the Register of Trades. The Regierungspräsidium
Dresden [President of the Regional Administration of Dresden], Abteilung Wirtschaft
und Arbeit [Department of Industry and Labour]

E-Mail: post@rpdd.sachsen.de,
www.rp-dresden.de

is responsible for this area.
                                                                                              7



     Choice of legal form

The choice of legal form for any business is generally not one which can or should be
made hastily as there are significant personal, economic and legal implications involved.
You would have to decide on the legal form which you feel is best suited to
accommodate your requirements on the basis of criteria which are important for you
personally, e.g. nature and scope of liability, rights pertaining to co-determination, capital
resources, set-up and establishment expenditure. Taxation considerations also merit
close attention.
You should avail yourself of the offers of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce or
the Chamber of Handicrafts, both of which provide valuable information and detail on
the legal forms which are possible, their advantages and disadvantages, and the legal
obligations on which they are based. There are also management consultants as well as
solicitors and notaries, who will be only too pleased to accompany you through the more
specialised and complex areas of your investigations.


Companies have to be entered in the Commercial Register. Application for entry has to
be submitted in publicly certified form. You will require the assistance of a Notary Public
for this. The Amtsgericht Dresden, Registergericht [Local Court of Dresden, Registry
Court], Olbrichtplatz 1, 01099 Dresden, Postfach 12 07 09, 01008 Dresden,
Tel.: (03 51) 446-0, Fax: (03 51) 446-36 99, is the authority responsible for such matters.



    3. Industrial/Commercial facilities, land and construction
       law
If you wish to purchase community land on which to erect your business premises, you
should contact the Amt für Wirtschaftsförderung [Office of Industrial Development]. You
will also receive assistance here (e.g. introduction to the owner) if you are interested in
purchasing or renting private property.

⇒ Landeshauptstadt Dresden, Amt für Wirtschaftsförderung, Abteilung Ansiedlung
und Gewerbeflächenentwicklung [Department of Business Establishment and
Commercial Property Development]
Dr.-Külz-Ring 19, 01067 Dresden, Tel.: (03 51) 4 88 10 41, Fax: (03 51) 4 88 24 04,
E-Mail: wirtschaftsfoerderung@dresden.de


The purchase of land is a formalised legal transaction. You will require the support and
assistance of a Notary Public for the purpose, amongst other things, of legalising the
Purchase Agreement. You will not have secured unrestricted title until your name is
entered in the Land Register. The
                                                                                               8

Tel.: (03 51) 446-0, Fax: (03 51) 4 46 35 99

is responsible for this area.

If you propose to erect, demolish or convert a building or buildings, you will almost
always require planning permission. The same will apply for change of use. There are
laws and municipal development plans in place on the basis of which decisions are
reached as to the admissibility of a given construction project. You can request the
relevant information from the:


⇒ Landeshauptstadt Dresden, Bauaufsichtsamt [Superintendent of Public Works],
Abteilung Zentrale Antragsannahme, Werbeanlagen, [Central Applications’ Acceptance
Department, Industrial/Commercial Installations]
Technisches Rathaus, Hamburger Straße 19, 01067 Dresden, Ground floor, Room 122,
Tel: (03 51) 4 88 18 01, E-Mail: zavs@dresden.de, www.dresden.de/index.html?node=2253

If you propose to erect or make structural changes to company premises, before
embarking on individual negotiations with various authorities, you should first of all avail
yourself of the services of the Amt für Wirtschaftsförderung [Department of Industrial
Development] as a one-stop-agency.They will act on your behalf in your dealings with
the municipal authorities.



    4. Taxes and duties
Revenue law is a highly complex field. Current efforts to push through new reforms are
almost certain to bring about extensive changes. The most important types of tax are
income tax and pay-as-you-earn, church tax, corporation tax, the solidarity
contribution, Value Added Tax, real-estate transfer tax. You should make a point of
sitting down together with a tax consultant before you actually take up business. The
Inland Revenue must be advised of commencement of self-employed activity, albeit
along relatively informal lines. Depending on where you live in Dresden, or where your
premises are located, one of the following offices will be responsible for you:

⇒ Finanzamt [Inland Revenue Office] Dresden I
Lauensteiner Str. 37, 01277 Dresden, Tel.: (03 51) 2 56 70, Fax: (03 51) 2 56 71 11

                                                                                          9




⇒ Finanzamt [Inland Revenue Office] Dresden III

www.sachsen.de/de/bf/staatsregierung/ministerien/smf/steuern/finanzaemter


Trade tax and land tax
The municipal authorities are responsible for the areas of trade and land tax. Please
contact

⇒ Landeshauptstadt Dresden, Steueramt [Rate Collector’s Office], Abteilung
Gewerbesteuer [Trade-tax Department]
Dr.-Külz-Ring 19, 01067 Dresden, Tel.: (03 51) 4 88 28 16, E-Mail: steueramt@dresden.de,
www.dresden.de/index.html?node=2219 or Abteilung Grundbesitzabgaben [Department of
Real-estate Charges] , Tel: (03 51) 4 88 21 80, www.dresden.de/index.html?node=2218

for advice and information on your tax liability.

In order to be able to transact business with other EU-States on a V.A.T.-zerorated
basis, it is imperative that you apply for a Value-Added-Tax Registration No. The body
responsible for this is the:

⇒ Bundesamt für Finanzen [Federal Central Finance Office], Saarlouis Branch Office,
66738 Saarlouis, Tel.: (0 68 31) 45 60, Fax: (0 68 31) 45 61 20,
E-Mail: poststelle-zu@bff-bund.de, www.bff-online.de



    5. Import regulations
If goods are imported into Germany from a country which does not belong to the EU,
they are strictly subject to duties, Value Added Tax on import and in some cases
excise duty as well.

Exceptions are made in the case of capital-investment goods and other items of
equipment which are brought in for the purpose of setting up or re-locating a business.
Removal goods belonging to persons who are re-locating their place of residence from
a country abroad to Germany fall under the same category.
Exemption from duties must be applied for in the form of a written customs’
declaration entry to be submitted to:

⇒ Zoll-Infocenter [Customs & Excise Information Centre]
Hansaallee 141; 60320 Frankfurt am Main, Tel.: (069) 46 99 76-00,
Fax: (069) 46 99 76-99, E-Mail: info@zoll-infocenter.de
                                                                                     10

Tel.: (03 51) 81 61-0/ -1 20, Fax: (03 51) 81 61-1 30, www.zoll-d.de



    6. Insurances
As a self-employed person, you can take out private medical insurance. Most self-
employed persons do not participate in the statutory old-age pension insurance
scheme, nor are they obliged to under law. Voluntary membership in a statutory
medical-insurance scheme is only possible under certain conditions. Normally, a health-
insurance policy taken out in your country of origin for the purpose of travel will not
suffice.

You are obliged to take out nursing-attendance insurance. Anyone who has taken out
voluntary health insurance has the choice between private or statutory insurance.

You will receive information and advice on the various aspects of social insurance
through the:

⇒ Landesversicherungsanstalt (LVA) Sachsen [State Social Insurance Board of
Saxony], Dresden Branch Office
Holbeinstraße 1, Tel.: (03 51) 4 45 70, www.lva-sachsen.de

Employees are insured under law against accidents through the Social Insurance for
Occupational Accidents, which is not always the case with self-employed persons.
The State Association of Social Insurance Bodies for Occupational Accidents must be
notified within one week of your having registered a trade or taken up self-employment:

⇒ Landesverband Bayern & Sachsen der gewerblichen Berufsgenossenschaften
[State Association of Bavaria & Saxony of Commercial Social Insurance Bodies for
Occupational Accidents, Dresden Branch Office

                                                                                          11



    7. Other legal requirements to be noted when in business
Anyone participating in business, and thus in competition with others, must be seen at
all times to be complying with the law pertaining to unfair competition [UWG]. This law
states quite categorically that actions carried out in business must not be seen to be in
breach of so-called good practices as defined by the Courts. Should you have any
queries or problems in this regard, there are solicitors there to be of assistance. They
should be specialists on the issue in question. The Bar Council will provide you with the
addresses of solicitors:

field of immission-protection must be complied with. There are special regulations in
place relating to the prevention, salvage and disposal of waste matter. Information

    8. Issues of relevance to right of residence
Foreigners entering the Federal Republic who wish to reside here must be in
possession of a residence permit.


     Visa, Tourist visa/ Business visa

If you propose to enter Germany for the purpose of taking up employment, the requisite
residence permit must be applied for in the form of a visa through the German diplomatic
representation responsible (embassies or consulates) prior to entering the country.
Exceptions are made, for example, in the case of citizens of a member state of the
EU/EEA. The current list of states for whom visas are obligatory and of those for whom
they are not may be requested at the Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of
Germany. The addresses of German diplomatic representations are likewise available
ther

⇒ Auswärtiges Amt [Foreign Office]
Werderscher Markt 1, 10117 Berlin, and postal address: 11013 Berlin,
Tel.: (030) 5 00 00, Fax: (030) 50 00 34 02, www.auswaertiges-amt.de,
List: www.auswaertiges-amt.de/www/de/willkommen/einreisebestimmungen/liste_html e.

A tourist visa will suffice to enable you to take the steps required to prepare the way for
commencement of your business activity or to establish a company or set up a branch
establishment. This authorises the bearer to remain in the country for a period of up to 3
months. Anyone wishing to conduct business thereafter without having re-located their
residence to within the Federal Republic must, at least, be in possession of a business
visa.



     Compulsory registration

Your new main residence must be registered with the registration office responsible
within 2 weeks:

     Permit pertaining to extended or permanent residence

The requisite permit must be applied for through the Aliens’ Authority no later than by
expiry of the entry visa. Foreigners who are already residing in the country legally must
also submit their application there for a residence permit for employment purposes:

⇒ Landeshauptstadt Dresden, Einwohner- und Standesamt [Registration and

http://www.dresden.de/index.html?node=2237



    9. Work permit
Members of non-EU/EEA states may only carry out work as employees if in possession
of a valid work permit. A work visa must be applied for through the German diplomatic
representation (embassy/consulate) abroad prior to entering the country.

The application to have the work permit issued must be submitted immediately following
entry into the country and must be accompanied by the work visa and confirmation of
registration, all of which takes place at the:

    11.      Foreign driving licence
Driving licences originating from EU/EEA member states are recognised without
restriction in Germany. The driving licence of any other state has to be changed over to
a German driving licence. The ordinance relating to driving licences [Fahrerlaubnis-
Verordnung/FeV] lists those countries (“Listenstaaten“/Listed countries) whose
licences are, for the most part, recognised for change-over purposes in the Federal
Republic of Germany and, in fact, are generally changed over without a test being
required. Provisions vary from state to state in the case of the U.S.A. as well as for the
different Canadian provinces. The authority responsible is:
