In addition to operational challenges, company founders are also regularly confronted with issues relating to financing and taxation. Misconduct in the aforementioned areas can be identified as the main factors behind failed start-ups. It must be taken into account here that the choice of legal form regularly sets the course for financing and taxation. In order to avoid later disadvantages or unwanted structures, a correspondingly coordinated course is required in the early phase of the foundation.

Business founders regularly enter into contractual relationships with business partners, customers, banks, suppliers and employees. The entrepreneurial project can only be successfully implemented and risks minimized with an optimized legal and tax structure.

Business founders and start-ups cannot regularly face these challenges themselves. This requires the support of experienced consultants.
