Deposit of share capital

To get a newly incorporated GmbH company registered the shareholders have at least to deposit the half of the equity capital.

If the company has been founded with the minimum equity capital of about 25,000 Euro the shareholders have to deposit at least 12,500 Euro. The amount of the deposit is stated within the company’s agreement.

Regularly the notary requires a statement proving the deposit before he forwards the application of the new company to the companies register.

As far as you have not deposited the complete capital for the foundation the further outstanding capital must be paid if the Managing Director requires it. There are no timely standards about this but if economically required he will ask for it at latest a liquidator will claim it.
