Granting of legal capacity as an economic association (w. V.)

Service Description

Our legal system often does not provide the appropriate legal form for small "community projects". The legal form of the economic association has fallen into oblivion over time, but offers the appropriate legal framework for many projects in the low capital range. An economic association is, in contrast to an ideal association (e. V.), an association whose purpose is directed towards an economic activity. This is established on the basis of § 22 BGB. Examples of an economic association are: Village shops/ cafés, agricultural producer associations, forestry associations, marketers, educational projects, areas of contract research or other business areas not mentioned here.
