Establishing A Business Entity In Italy (Updated)

1. Types of Business Entities -

1.1 Premises -

The Italian law provides multiple forms of organizational structures in order to do business in Italy, which differ from one another due to the extent of the liability undertaken by their participants. In particular, certain business organizational forms allow the participants to limit their personal liability (such as the “società per azioni” – a type of company similar to the Joint Stock Company – or the “società a responsabilità limitata” – similar to the Limited Liability Company), as opposed to others which do not limit the liability of the participants (among which the “società semplice” and the “società in nome collettivo,” operating similarly to a partnership) or which provide for limitations to the personal liability only for certain classes of stakeholders (i.e. the “società in accomandita semplice” and “società in accomandita per azioni”).
