Founding a civil law company (GbR)
A company under civil law (Gesellschaft bürgerlichen Rechts, GbR) is a partnership and is also called a BGB-Gesellschaft. The prerequisite for the foundation of the company is that at least two shareholders are involved in it. To do this, the partners must unite in the partnership agreement for a common purpose. The purpose does not necessarily have to be of an economic nature. An ideal purpose is sufficient, such as the establishment of a shared apartment. Every partner has a duty to promote the common purpose. However, the BGB company may not operate a trade according to the German Trade Code. If a trade is operated, this must take the form of an OHG.
