Types of company that you can start in Germany

There are several types of business that you can start in Germany. Your responsibility to choose a business entity as you start out of business. On the other hand, the type of business that you plan to manage may also offer the type of entity to use. It all depends on whether you want to run that business in Germany. Here's a list of companies to guide you through;

 

Single Ownership

 

Accepting the only proprietary type of entity means that you may want to start from scratch on a small scale. The less complex structure is the only proprietor, it is usually associated with a person who owns and manages the enterprise.

If you wish to work alone, this may be the way to go. The only proprietary tax aspects are particularly attractive because the business income and expenses are included in your personal income tax return.

 

Partnership

 

This is especially useful when you do not want to be the only one involved in ownership, then you can consider taking entity sharing style. If your business is managed and managed by a lot of people, then you can organize your business as a partnership. Partnership comes in two variations: general partnerships and limited partnerships.

In the general partnership, the partners complete the company and shoulder the responsibility for the liability of partnership debt and other responsibilities.

 

On the other hand, there is a limited partnership both common and limited partners. General partners are responsible for business-owned and active and partnership, limited partners only work as investors. This means they do not take any control over the company and do not associate with the same liability as a general partner.

 

Corporation

 

Such an entity is adopted on a very large scale and taking corporate structure is more complex and costlier than most business structures. A corporation is a distinct legal entity, distinct from its owners, and thus it needs more restrictions and tax requirements.

The Shortest History of Germany by James Hawes
The Shortest History of Germany - James Hawes

A bare-bones (minus a few phalanges and ribs) of what will eventually become Germany.  The beginning is alright, if very superficial, but the rest is overshadowed by the author's political agenda, dislike for Protestants and rabid anti-Prussianess (or basically a dislike for anything on the east side of the Elbe).  There were also numerous factual errors and typos.  The inclusion of maps was usefull.  There is no timeline or list of references, or even further recommended reading.  In short, a poor offering.

A must read. Unmissable.
Nuremberg's Voice of Doom: The Autobiography of the Chief Interpreter at History's Greatest Trials - Wolfe Frank,Paul Hooley

My thanks to Rosie Croft and to Pen & Sword for sending me a hardback copy of this book, which I freely chose to review and I can’t recommend enough.

Often, when we read books on important historical subjects we feel we have learned something that others should also know about, something that should not be forgotten by the new generations, to avoid mistakes being repeated or to give credit to people who played an important role in ensuring a better future for all. This book combines both of these aspects, and much more.

Having read about the Nuremberg Trials, watched movies, and seen them mentioned often in other settings, I was curious when I saw this book. I’d never paid much heed to the role of the interpreters at the trials, but now that I’ve been doing translations for a while (and I know it’s a very different type of work), I’ve become much more aware of how important accuracy is, and in that case, with all the legal requirements and speed also playing a part, even more so. The fact that Wolfe Frank was the main and star interpreter (not that he ever says so himself, but it is an easy conclusion from the accolades and endorsements he received) at the trials would have made it an interesting book already, but his adventures and the man are fascinating in their own right.

The story of why the book had never come to light before (that links to his final years and his sad circumstances) sounds like the stuff of fiction: the memoirs of a very important and fascinating man locked up in an attic, with nobody fully aware of what was there, for twenty-five years. And then, what a life! If this was a work of fiction many readers would think that the author had gone too far stretching the suspension of disbelief. It feels as if Frank had lived several lives in one, and they all make for a very compelling read.

Paul Hooley does a great job of interfering little with the original materials, while providing sufficient information and background to ensure that the memoirs read smoothly, and we don’t need to keep searching for explanations of terminology or for details about people and places mentioned. His vast amount of research is evident but non-intrusive, and he also includes pictures to do with Frank’s life and with the trials. They all add to the reading experience, and I found particularly enlightening the drawings indicating how the courtroom worked, the places all the key players occupied, and the annotated pictures, originally from other books. Mostly, Hooley allows Frank’s words to speak for themselves, and he comes across as an intelligent, funny, witty, sharp, and matter-of-fact man, who was charming, could turn his hand at anything and do it well, knew how to get his own way often, for whom Justice (with capital letters) was truly important, but who had no great respect for rules, regulations or authority for their own sake, and could not abide fools or bullies gladly. He loved adventures and living in the fast-lane, but not when it came to putting other people’s lives at risk. He lived through some terrible events and put up with things that many of us can’t even imagine, but he maintained his dignity and is a perfect example of grace under pressure.

I cannot summarise the whole book and his life in a review, and in fact there is another book about his later adventures in Germany, which I have already secured a copy of, but if you love spy books, and are a fun of James Bond (I am not, by the way), you will want to read this book. He was not a spy, at least in the sense we have become familiar with through books and movies, but he did many of the things we would expect a spy to do, and many more. The part of the book about the trial is fascinating in its own right. The setting up of simultaneous translation, which had not been successfully used or established before, is a must for anybody interested in how international courts and organisations work at a practical level. Even though Frank makes light of many things, it is clear that he was serious about this, and he took the experience to heart (just imagine having to listen to hours and hours of descriptions of the crimes committed, while trying to do a job, and you will get an idea of how harrowing that must have been). He talks about Otto Ohlendorf, Chief of the Special Action Group in the East —this was part of the Subsequent Proceedings where he was the Chief Interpreter— and explains why he was one of the most chilling individuals he had to listen to, his pride when explaining his method of setting up the mobile gas chambers and perfecting them to make sure his staff were not affected mentally by the killings. He evidently thought he had done a great job and remained proud of it. Here is one of the few times when Frank explains how affected he was by it all:

There were days, such as that, when after my day in court I could not eat and I had to drown myself in alcohol before I could sleep; days when my reactions to anything or anyone German were not normal.

There were inevitable emotional reactions. What has remained is the realisation that a lifetime is too short for such horrors to be filed away in the annals of history as something destined to be forgotten. Forgiven, perhaps —forgotten— never. I flinch at the sickening sentimentality that demands the release of a Rudolf Hess, the application of the statutes of limitation. (Frank, 2018, p. 166)

I couldn’t agree more, and indeed it is a shame when one reads what happened to him at the end (when he couldn’t stay in his accommodation and due to his ill health he could not keep working) that he was not honoured and remembered as he deserved. At least one can hope that this book will make people become aware of him and his role, even if it is a case of ‘too little, too late’.

He was popular with women and his cavalier attitude can be problematic to read nowadays, but he recognised his own responsibility in the matter, and he does not appear dismissive or prejudiced when talking about women in a professional capacity. He could be a rogue (if we were to use a typical romantic novel definition of the word), but it seems fair to assume that he was a charming one. As Hooley very aptly summarises:

In short Wolfe Frank seems to have been a mixture of Casanova, with whom he had much in common, Cary Grant, the Scarlet Pimpernel, James Bond and Oliver Reed; and he had that rare ability to be a man’s man —a worldly-wise, educated gentleman who possesses class and admits his faults— as well as being a ladies’ man.  (Frank, 2018, p. 178)

This is an important book, a page-turner, a book that moves at fast pace, full of adventure, historical detail, and with a protagonist that even the most skilled fiction writers would struggle to improve on. Read it and recommend it. I’m sure you will.

And as a closing, I had to leave you with a lighter passage, and one that I, who lived in the UK for many years but could never fully understand the attraction cricket held for many, had to smile at. Here he had just arrived in the UK after one of his lucky escapes, was starving and hoping his friend would take him for a meal on arrival, but he was dragged instead to watch a cricket match. He’d never experienced one before.

At the match I found myself sitting next to a teacher who wanted to practice his German. For some time, I gazed at a group of men who, at first, seemed to be in doubt about what to do with themselves. They finally started to throw a ball about half-heartedly and now and then one of them seemed to arouse himself from his lethargy, to take an awkward swing at the ball with a large, clumsy lump of timber. Finally, I felt that I required an explanation. I turned to my neighbour and asked him when they would start to play? ‘Heavens’ he said with an expression of complete horror on his face, ‘what do you mean? They’ve been playing for over an hour… and this is a frightfully exciting match!’ (Frank, 2018, p. 42)

Meat is the mostly consumed food product in Germany: Report

04 April 2019, Germany Organic Food Market is expected to reach USD 20.7 billion by 2025 as a result of increasing demand from consumers owing to the perceived benefits of the natural produce. Moreover, the increasing demand from the consumers for organic baby food is driving the natural food market owing to the nutritional benefits and chemical & pesticides free food. Thus, the parents are more inclined towards natural food fulfilling their requirement for healthy and nutritional intake of their kids. The availability of extensive product ranges and increased network is expected to result in increased sales of organic baby food products in future. The increasing awareness of adulteration in baby food is expected to result in the growth of German organic food market over the forecast period.

 

Furthermore, Germany is the largest European market for natural products, and is driven by the high consumer spending power. The increasing organic farming is aiding in the growth of organic products in the market. However, the imports of natural and organic products have evolved significantly over the past years owing to the increase in demand from the large consumer base. This import is not limited to the products not grow in Germany but also for usual produce such as fruits and vegetables, dairy products, meat and potatoes. Thus, the increasing import of natural products is expected to drive the growth of the Germany organic food market over the forecast period.

 

 

The increasing environmental awareness regarding the nutritional benefits of organic food among the consumers is a significant factor driving the growth of the natural food market. As organic farming conserves resources and is eco-friendly, the produce from such farms are gaining an increasing consumption among the consumers in Germany. The benefits of organic farming such as water & soil conservation, animal welfare and flora and fauna protection is expected to increase the customer inclination towards organic farm produce. This results in reduced carbon foot print owing to the sustainable farming practices. Thus, the sustainable farming activities is expected to drive the growth of the German organic food market over the forecast period.

 

Moreover, the Germany government initiatives to promote healthy living and chemical free food products is expected to catalyze the organic food sector. The urbanization has resulted in food quality issues and hence, the German cities are transforming the cities into food gardens. Furthermore, the city food councils in various cities such as Berlin, Kiel and Cologne are promoting healthier and sustainable food production through community supported agricultural. These councils have undertaken urban agricultural projects by greening the new buildings and making use of uncontaminated industrial land as community gardens. The locals are encouraged to cultivate crops and useful plants in public green areas. Thus, potato and fruit planting in neighborhoods are gaining popularity. This is helping municipal organizations to lower their public green area maintenance cost. Thus, such green areas are expected to further drive the growth of the Germany organic food market over the forecast period.

 

The increasing awareness of organic trade shows in Germany is expected to tempt the health conscious customers. For instance, the BioFach in Germany is gaining popularity among the global food organic industry as well as the organic consumer base and is expected to drive the growth of the German organic food market over the forecast period.
