Portuguese Commercial Law allows the following most common types of corporate status:
- • Private limited liability companies – a company in which each partner has a share and in which the liability of its members corresponds to the capital. They are recognizable by the expression "Limitada" which must be a necessary part of the company name. They can be constituted by one partner only, the so called "Unipessoal".
- • Limited company by shares - In a company limited by shares, the capital is divided in shares and the liability of each partner is limited to the amount of shares that he/she subscribed to. They are recognizable by the expression "S.A.". Minimal capital is of € 50.000 and must have at least 5 shareholders.
The formation of a company requires the previous acquisition of a name which availability is confirmed by "R.N.P.C." (National Register of Firms or Associations)
- There are no limitations to the participation of foreigners or foreign companies in Portuguese companies.
