THE LEGAL FORMS OF COMPANIES IN ITALY
We now come to the various legal forms with which Italian companies are distinguished:
There are companies in partnerships (s.n.c. and s.a.s.) and joint-stock companies (s.r.l. and s.p.a.). Let’s see them in more detail:
COMPANY S.N.C.
For s.n.c. means a “General Company”, or a company for which it is necessary to register an act with the Business Office containing:
general information of the shareholders;
business name;
indication of the managing shareholders;
corporate purpose;
indication of the seat;
contributions from each shareholder;
duration of the company;
methods of distribution of profits and losses.
If you decide to open this type of company, keep in mind that you will not be able to distribute sums among the shareholders if not really earned profits and in case of loss of the share capital, as long as the loss is not reinstated or reduced, it is not possible to distribute profits.
AZIENDA S.R.L.
Una s.r.l. (Limited Liability Company) is a joint stock company that responds to corporate obligations with its own assets. To open a business of this type, a capital of at least € 10,000 is required.
AZIENDA S.P.A.
The s.p.a. (Joint-stock company) is another type of joint-stock company, however, with financial autonomy. Shareholders become shareholders by acquiring the shares but have no administrative power.
In the event that any loss of capital is not resolved or reduced by at least one third within the next financial year, the capital must be reduced. If the reduction reaches the minimum threshold of € 120,000, the company will have to be transformed into a “lower” company such as a limited liability company.
COMPANY S.A.S.
A company s.a.s. (Limited Partnership Company), on the other hand, has two different types of shareholders:
general partners
limited partners.
The main difference is that the former have greater obligations and responsibilities than the company. However, the general partners are the only ones who can represent the company and appear in the company name.
COOPERATIVE
A cooperative is a particular type of company with variable capital, in which the members can openly participate in the capital.
These are non-profit organizations that offer their members benefits or services at advantageous prices. At least 9 partners are required to open this type of business and a public deed must be made.
