Wow, who would have known. Choosing a name for a company should be easy right? Not in Germany, it isn’t.
Get this, company names in Germany must not be misleading (among about a million other things. Hey, it’s Germany after all) by law. And “groupXS” apparently is just that. Misleading.
Why? Well, “group” or in German “Gruppe” is strictly reserved for a cooperation made up of different companies. Who would have known. Therefore the Commercial Register has temporarily put or application on hold.
Let’s just put it that way: We were not expecting that! Well, you live and learn. Lesson of today: There are a lot of laws in Germany.
