Foreign and domestic investors have a number of opportunities to organize their business in Albania. You can either establish and register a sales organization, or establish and register a branch or representative office. [2] The registration of foreign companies has been carried out since 1 September 2007 at the National Registration Centre, which aimed to introduce the “one-stop-shop” system. Law No. 131/2015 of 26 November 2015[3] allowed the creation of the National Business Centre (QKB), whose purpose was to simplify the procedures for doing business in the country by allowing registration and approval procedures in a single institution. As a result, the National Registration Centre and the National Licensing Centre were abolished. [4] The other form of business, such as partnerships, sole proprietors, foundations, trusts, etc., does not have the only specific characteristic that any entrepreneur should look for, namely a separation of his own assets from the assets and, more importantly, liabilities of the business. Otherwise, a default of the company could result in claims from creditors, bankers, tax authorities and others for amounts owed by the company and makes the owners liable for all legal claims for damages. Thus, the natural and by far the most popular choice is to start a business with a legal entity whose owners have no personal responsibility. The big advantage: the subsidiary does not need to be a European company. For example, if the subsidiary is located in Germany, it may retain the legal form of a German limited liability company (GmbH).

Şahıs şirketleri ≈ partnerships (Unlike partnerships in Anglo-American law, they also have a legal personality such as companies) The European cooperative society is a European legal form with the characteristics of cooperative and joint-stock society (naamloze vennootschap in Dutch). SCE cooperatives can more easily set up new cooperatives at European level for activities in several countries. The SCE is not linked to any EU Member State. This makes it possible to move the official address of the company (head office) to another country. The SEC does not need to be dissolved or reinstated. The drawing-up, auditing and publication of annual accounts shall be governed by the rules of the Member State in which the SCE has its registered office. The capital of the SCE shall consist of the shares of its members. Members contribute together at least €۳۰,۰۰۰٫ A corporation is a separate type of business corporation (although the legislator classifies it as partnerships).

It contains the characteristics of two types of companies – joint-stock company and limited partnership. In this type of partnership, at least one partner is the general partner, who is fully responsible for the company`s obligations to creditors, and at least one partner is a partner. The company`s activities are based on the articles of association in the form of a notarial deed and registration in the National Register of Courts. A limited partnership is the only type of partnership that requires raising at least PLN 50,000 of initial capital. Therefore, this partnership is more capitalized than any existing business type. The company is represented externally by general partners, while the shareholders are neither responsible for the obligations of the company nor participate in the management of the company (they can only represent the company as agents). The name must include the name or full name of the partnership of at least one general partner and the designation “limited partnership” or “S.K.A.” The name may not contain the name or business name of the shareholder. Interestingly, a general partner (by contributing to the capital of the company) can obtain shareholder status. In return, a shareholder may receive general partner status – the name of the company must include the name of the shareholder or the name of the company.

The partnership is subject to corporation tax. This form of business activity is available to citizens of all countries. If you want to set up a business in Sweden, you need to choose a form of business. Sole proprietorship, commercial partnership/limited partnership, limited liability company and economic association are the most common forms of company in Sweden. Most types of legal entities are governed by a modified version of the original version of the Dutch Burgerlijk Wetboek. An EEIG shall consist of at least two organs: the members acting jointly and the Director(s). The powers of the Board of Directors are defined in the Articles of Association. In principle, each member has one vote. Some members may have more votes, but no member may have a majority. Both natural persons (natural persons) and legal persons may manage an EEIG based in the Netherlands. In this issue, I give you answers to these and other questions about European legal forms. Have you heard of European company forms such as SEs or EEIGs and are wondering whether it would be useful for you to change your current legal form? Are there any tax benefits you could get? A municipal association is a legal entity established to manage projects that benefit multiple properties.

Projects may include private roads, parking lots, playgrounds, bridges, broadband networks, stairwells and elevators. However, only an experienced tax advisor can judge on the basis of a thorough analysis whether a European company form is really the best legal form for your needs. Limited liability company, sole proprietorship and general partnership are the main types of businesses in Singapore. [57] Partnerships are called kumiai (組合). Each of these 4 types does not have legal personality, although other companies that include “kumiai” in their name have the following: A company is a legal entity incorporated under the Companies Ordinance 1984. It can have share capital or be formed without social capital. However, the rules applicable to certain types of companies, even if they are described as roughly equivalent, differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. When setting up or restructuring a business, the legal responsibilities depend on the type of business entity chosen.

[۱] In the case of real estate companies, ownership or membership may belong either to the property or to a legal or natural person, depending on the form of company. In many cases, membership or ownership of such an organization is mandatory for a person or property that meets the legal requirements for membership or wishes to engage in certain activities. The Commercial Code establishes the following types of companies: This cross-border form of economic activity is regulated by reference to the Act of 4 March 2005 on the European Economic Interest Grouping and the European Company (Dz.U.2022.259 t.j.). It is a legal form of transnational enterprise that combines the characteristics of a (general) partnership and a consortium. An EEIG must be composed of at least 2 entities (companies and/or individuals) that carry out their commercial activities or have their registered office in two different EU Member States. The legal structure of an EEIG is similar to the legal form of a general partnership, which is defined in the Commercial Companies Code. EEIGs established in Poland are subject to the provisions relating to general partnerships. According to those provisions, the EIG is an organisational unit without legal personality. An EEIG is subject to registration in the national register of courts in accordance with the principles laid down for general partnerships.

An important difference from a general partnership is that third parties are responsible for the management and representation of the EEIGs, which are the directors of the grouping. The aim of EEIGs is to facilitate or develop the economic activities of individual members, not just to make a profit. The activity of an EEIG is therefore subsidiary to the activity of its members. Following amendments to the Companies and Associations Code, the term “limited liability company” (SPRL) automatically became “limited liability company” (BV/SRL)[9][10] as part of the harmonisation of legal forms within the European Union. The European Company (Societas Europaea, SE) is a corporate structure for internationally active companies.
