We support your business in Germany

Germany is a big and attractive market for all kinds of businesses. Small and medium-sized companies (SME) from abroad should not hesitate to take their chances. On the other hand, German taxation and social security is said to be strict and complicated. That is true, but Bedenbecker & Berg GmbH can help.

From January 1 2024 on, companies with more than 1000 employees have to ensure that no violations of human rights or environment rules occur in their own enterprise nor at their suppliers (regardless their headcount of employees).

Suppliers should cooperate in order to maintain the business, but not all questions have to be answered.

It is recommendable for suppliers to know and control the key risks in this context. As a very first measure, Bundesministerium für Arbeit offers a risk quickcheck at Home | CSR Risk Check (

It generates a report with the characteristic risks in relation with the offered product or service. The report of Bedenbecker & Berg GmbH is available in the client section (Mandanten-Login). (21.10.2023)
