Limited liability company

You can set up a limited liability company either on your own or together with one or more shareholders. It is usually possible to set it up electronically, which is faster and less expensive than using a paper form. The limited liability company's key organs are the General Meeting, the Board of Directors and the Managing Director. As a founder, you can yourself participate in deciding on matters that concern your company in one of these organs.

Compare the company forms thoroughly to find the best option for your business.
