What does the abbreviation AG mean?
AG stands for Aktiengesellschaft. This form of corporation is usually chosen as the corporate form for listed companies. In English-speaking countries, the stock corporation is called a "Public Limited Company", abbreviated to PLC. The PLC is also a corporation, similar to the German stock corporation (AG), and can therefore offer its shares on stock exchanges.
Who is liable for an AG?
In the case of an AG, the partners or shareholders are not liable with their private assets, but only with their contributions or shares. In the event of insolvency, only the assets of the company are used to cover the liabilities of the AG.
What is a legal form?
Every founder needs a suitable legal form under which their company can operate on the market in the future and be viewed from a financial, tax and legal perspective. For solo self-employed persons and freelancers, this can be the legal form of a sole proprietorship. Or the GmbH, KG or AG - depending on how much capital is available for the formation, how many founders there are and how the private assets of the shareholders are to be protected. A basic distinction can be made between the legal forms of corporations and partnerships. In a partnership, the partners are privately liable for all liabilities with their assets. In the case of more complex corporations, liability is limited to the company's assets.
How do I find a brand name?
Finding a suitable brand name is initially a creative process in which marketing considerations, reception and impact of the symbol will play a role. However, the development and above all the use and registration of the name is subject to a number of legal restrictions. On the one hand, the trademark should not be identical or similar to existing company logos or registered trademarks under which identical or similar goods and services are offered. If there is too much similarity, trademark disputes are often the result. On the other hand, the trademark office checks during the application process whether so-called absolute grounds for refusal exist. The most common grounds for refusal are the descriptive character of a trademark and its lack of distinctiveness. Therefore, descriptive or overly generic terms should not be chosen as brand names. If there is a descriptive reference between the brand name and the goods and services offered under the trademark, the trademark office can reject the trademark application. The same risk exists if the brand name is too generic and therefore cannot have any distinctive character.
