Important and useful information

  • Need of a branch office

    Need of a branch office

    You don’t need to have a branch office in Germany.

    The regulation (through § 28f para. 1b SGB IV) states that Employers without a registered office in Germany must appoint an authorized representative if they employ staff subject to social security contributions in Germany. This authorized representative is responsible for ensuring that the remuneration records are properly kept and archived. If needed our customers can rely on us acting as authorized representative on their behalf.
