Subcontractors for industry and trade

Construction workers and ironworkers from Latvia and Electricians from Estonia and Poland are in demand throughout Europe. Metal workers such as fitter, welders all have valid certificates and travel with A1 certification. No matter how many employees your company needs, our service providers take care of the subcontractor placement, logistics, accommodation and for large objects also project managers on site.

Advantages of subcontractors

Among the most important advantages of subcontractors are quick deployment at their customers' premises and the avoidance of staff bottlenecks. In addition, you minimise your costs and benefit from the flexibility. Many qualified workers from Lithuania, Latvia and Eastern Europe cannot find work in their home countries or earn too little money to feed their families. That's why they take the opportunity to find work in Germany. German companies save on personnel costs because the foreign workers do not expect high German wages. 

At the same time, you do not enter into any permanent obligations with forms of contract such as secondment. With secondment, a company abroad, for example in Eastern Europe, acts as the employer, so the usual rules on protection against dismissal do not apply. German companies can thus make flexible use of labour at short notice, for example during production peaks or for a large contract in the ancillary construction trade.

Temporary work vs. subcontracting: Differences


What to look out for when hiring subcontractors from Eastern Europe

When commissioning subcontractors from the Baltic States, a legally secure contract is the basis for smooth cooperation. Contracts with subcontractors can either be a VOB contract (only concerns the execution of construction work) or a contract for work and services.

Contracts with subcontractors or sub-subcontractors from Lithuania and Latvia are concluded by a main contractor who needs additional capacity to complete his projects. The main contractor then hires subcontractors such as painters or tilers for specific work or individual partial services. Subcontractors from the Baltic States must perform the agreed service for their client according to the contractual quality, cost and time specifications. If this is carried out by subcontractors, they must ensure that the work is done to the satisfaction of the client.

Basically, subcontractors from the Baltic stand for an ideal price-performance ratio that German companies cannot maintain. When hiring subcontractors, permits and forms should also be taken into account.

  • For example, employees need the B1 Bescheinigungen, um in Deutschland legal zu arbeiten.
  • The work must be registered with customs. Otherwise the work will be treated as undeclared work.


The clients cannot exempt themselves from all these obligations and refer to the subcontractor from the Baltic States. Every contractor in Germany is responsible and liable for this.

Subcontracting through a contract for work and services or a construction contract

If you want to use a subcontractor in construction and finishing work,- you should conclude a work or construction contract and record all the necessary details there. If the subcontractor is a one-person company, it is considered an employment relationship with all the consequences under labour and social law.
Therefore, when hiring a subcontractor, it is necessary to make sure that all the important details are listed in the work or construction contract. In addition, you should also check that the contractual details are lived out in practice. Violations of this can be very expensive for your company and result in criminal proceedings.
