The shareholders are the people who have to take the decision to change the company's official seat. This entails amending the Articles of Association and the amendment has to be certified by a notary or notarized solicitor. The notary will also forward a notification to the German Trade Register.
The official seat has to be de-registered with the current commercial authority and re-registered at the new commercial authority. In addition, the change of the company’s registration has to be reported to the German authorities. Here, the authorities of the old as well as of the new region have to be informed.
