Can tangible assets replace minimal founding capital?

Let’s say a shareholder wants to present tangible assets as their founding capital. They can use tangible assets such as machines, real estate, vehicles or intelectual property. In this case the shareholder has to establish the company at a notary. The registration process with the notary surely brings extra costs. The shareholder has to evaluate the value of their tangible assets. To do so, they must hire a court appraiser. The sum value of tangible assets must not be lower than the minimal founding capital amount. Which, as mentioned before, is € 7500. In this case the registration can only be done at a notary and not at a DATA point.
