Hi, if you do business in Germany you either have to register a company or you have to use your personal name as the name of your firm. In the US and the UK you can register an assumed name and “do business as” (DBA). This explains why so many US based business website have just an ‘About’ in which they use their domain name and a street address. A German website has to have an ‘imprint’ (a direct translation of the German term ‘impressum’ - OK, originally it might a Latin word but now the Germans are the only ones who use it). You will see that only German corporations have an ‘imprint’ section on the English version of their website.
This would be against the law in Germany because as a private individual you can’t do business under your website’s domain name. You have to be incorporated which usually involves a certain amount of paperwork and money. Could this be one of the reasons why the unemployment rate in the US and UK is lower than in Germany?[YSaerTTEW443543]
