2.1 legal entity and organizational structure

Gmbh – “type of legal entity very common in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and other Central European countries”. GmbH form emphasizes on the fact that the owners of the entity are not personally liable for the company's debts. Giving us an advantagein the case that the company fails.

Since each of us invested the same capital to the company (25%) we have the same level of ownership. But each of us is dedicated to the area we are better at as we can see on the next chart.
