What You Really Should Know
US company = actionability in Europe
With a US Corporation you are not limited at all to the US market in your business activities. Every properly registered US corporation can act worldwide and also establish subsidiaries. The only thing you need is the so-called apostille, issued by the Secretary of State in Florida if the seat of the company is in Florida. The certificate is based on the Convention of The Hague (Den Haag) from October 5, 1961.
You want the official version? Here you go:
"Foreign public certificates that are to be used in the Federal Republic of Germany and that for this purpose have an apostille, do not require any further verification or notarization. The apostille is a formality by means of which the authenticity of the certificate is confirmed after article 3 of the Treaty of The Hague from October 5, 1961, for the legislative waiver of foreign public certificates (Federal Law sheet 1965 II, page 875) issued by the authority that was hereto authorized by the state."
Once your US Corporationst is officially registered in the Commercial Registry, it will be considered and treated as a German company in Germany, as long as it is properly registered. This is also valid for the other European Union member states.
