Partners in a Ltd

Partners in a limited liability company – how many partners can there be?

Usually, partners in a Ltd often ask our business advisors how many partners together can register one company. If €50 is the minimum amount of capital to be contributed by one member and €7,500 is the minimum amount of capital, then mathematically we could conclude that 150 individuals can set up Ltd. However, this is not the case. Why not? To be sure, if you would like to set up a Ltd, you can do it with us here at DATA!

Partners in a Ltd – what does the Companies Act (ZGD-1) say?

In essence, the Companies Act (ZGD-1) provides that a company may have a maximum of 50 members. More than that only with the permission of the Ministry of Economy. Each shareholder can contribute one share capital at the time of incorporation and can have only one share in the business. Every EUR 50 of the basic contribution gives a shareholder one vote.

Social contract of association to form the company

Moreover, the social contract of association is drawn up either in Vem form or in the form of a notarial deed. However, in the case of registration of the company at the DATA point, the contract needs to be in VEM form and is an elementary contract which does not contain specific articles defining the specific relations between the partners. With this in mind, in the case of a Ltd, if you wish to put specific articles in the articles of the contract, you must do it in notarial form. In short, only a notary can put specific articles in the contract.
