Accompaniment of French companies towards Germany
International groups, creation or development of subsidiaries, we accompany our clients in their needs for "go to Germany" missions. We are able to provide legal, accounting and tax advice: our auditors, lawyers, chartered accountants and engineers each have a special know-how for the subsidiaries of French companies that are setting up, or have set up, in Germany.
OUR FRANCO-GERMAN CULTURE
At COFFRA Group, 80% of our clients are international groups, the vast majority of which are of Franco-German origin. What sets us apart is our specific know-how, thanks to our Franco-German culture, our multilingualism and our international skills. But it is also our know-how, characterized by empathy, transparency and availability, including on the part of our partners.
ESTABLISHMENT ON GERMAN SOIL
As a financial and legal partner and a specialist in French-German law, we translate your business project into a structure designed to guarantee your financial performance.
First of all, we help you to create your subsidiary:
- Creation of the subsidiary in Germany
- Keeping the accounts
- Preparation of tax returns
- Transposition of German accounts into French
- Legal support in Germany
We then set up the basis for tax optimization, both for your group or your subsidiary and for yourself, and for the intra-group financial processes.
We also train your teams on the specific accounting and tax issues in Germany.
We help you to adapt the finance and HR modules of your ERP to German constraints.
And we accompany your managers in their installation in Germany, both on a personal and administrative level.
COMPANY ACQUISITIONS IN GERMANY

In this way, you have direct access to customers, products, patents and employees. Involve us as a competent advisor in your acquisition plans from the very beginning. We help you to minimize legal risks and offer you targeted services:
- Selection of the legally and fiscally appropriate form of acquisition and assessment of the consequences in other countries

- Performing due diligence

POST-ACQUISITION SUPPORT IN GERMANY
The successful takeover and integration of a new acquisition requires a well-defined strategy and the preparation and structuring of the integration project. At COFFRA group, we mobilize the teams and support the managers in identifying and implementing the key value-creation projects in order to promote an effective takeover.
If you are looking for global and customized solutions that guarantee the relevance and implementation of your strategic development, we can help you reduce and rationalize your administrative tasks through global outsourcing. By relieving you of unproductive burdens to the maximum extent, we help to create real positive effects, such as increased efficiency and better performance of the outsourced areas.
