Every type of enterprise has specific characteristics of its own and, therefore, the choice between any of them serves a particular economic intention. Thus, an enterprise may be:
Individual Enterprise: This form is quite common. Its main advantage is its high flexibility as regards the enterprise decisions, concerning the type of activity involved, the selection of the adopted technical methods and, up to a point, the volume of production. These advantages are essential especially for the small and medium size agricultural and commercial enterprises and small industries, where the personal supervision and initiative is of great importance. However, when the kind of business imposes the development of a larger company size, then the most appropriate choice is the corporate enterprise.
Corporate Enterprise: The corporate enterprise is founded and run by , at least, two people, the partners . Their association is based on the corporate agreement, which is adapted to the type of each company. Basic forms of the corporate enterprise are: General Partnership, Limited Partnership, Public Limited Company (Societe Anonyme) and Limited Liability Company.
In the General Partnership company all partners are jointly liable with their entire estate for the activity and the debts of the company. Moreover they are liable to personal detention when they are unable to pay their creditors.
