British company to lease international employees to Germany

Business case

A British company's objective is to send employees to individual German companies in order to help them develop their business in the EMEA region. The nature of the British company is to manage these temporary workers in Germany.

Business challenge

As a holder of the German Labour Leasing Licence, the British company fully manages the temporary workers, without having the obligation to have a legal entity in Germany. For the supply of temporary workers in Germany the German Labour Leasing Law requires a special permit.

Questions to be considered:

  • How is the administrative process set up in Germany?
  • How will the supply and work contract be defined?
  • Does the German Collective Bargaining Law apply?
  • What will the tax situation of the company look like?

  • Legal and Tax registration of the company and the employees
  • Preparation of supply and work contracts as well as all necessary documentation
