When founding corporations, the articles of association must be notarized and the formation process must be accompanied by a notary up to the point of entry in the register. The support of a notary is also required for subsequent amendments to the articles of association, restructuring and capital measures in close consultation with tax advisors and auditors.
The assistance of a notary is also required when concluding property purchase and contribution agreements and when establishing and transferring residential property. Furthermore, the assistance of notaries is required in the sale of real estate packages by way of asset or share deals as well as in securing loans.
The involvement of a notary is also often necessary in the transfer of companies and assets to the next generation. The legal issues associated with the succession of assets are complex. A notarial will accurately set out the will of the transferor, is legally secure and avoids later disputes. In addition, the transfer of assets during one's lifetime makes sense from various aspects. The drafting of corresponding contracts requires great care, as tax aspects as well as future developments must be taken into account with foresight.
The notary holds a public office. Attorney-at-law and notary Peter Holzhäuser provides his notarial services on his own responsibility and outside the scope of Ebner Stolz.
