A GmbH and a UG (limited liability) is a legal form for a company in Germany. UG is the abbreviation for Unternehmergesellschaft. It is often also referred to as a 1-Euro GmbH. In contrast to a partnership, the UG (limited liability) is a corporation. This means that the company is always liable with its “capital” (therefore also capital company) and not the partner behind it personally. As with a GmbH, the liability of the company is therefore limited to the paid-up share capital.
Advantages of a UG (limited liability company)
