  3. Corporation.
  4. Co-operative.

First. Sole Proprietorship is the simplest organizational and legal form. All business functions are performed by one person, and this person assumes all risks and liabilities associated with offshore work in New Brunswick.

Second. A partnership is an association of several persons with the purpose of profit making. The laws governing the activities of a company of this type are the Partnership Act and the Limited Partnership Act.

Third. The corporation is a more complex type of business structure and often includes higher legal and accounting fees than in cases of Sole Proprietorship and Partnership.

Types of corporations:

  2. A company registered in the province.

Insurance is an important part of any business. If personal responsibility can be born by individuals when dealing with business, it is important to have proper insurance coverage. Enterprises want to protect their assets in the event of a claim to avoid bankruptcy in the event of unforeseen situations. The insurance covers personal liability, as well as the responsibility of a manufacturer, fires, transport fleet, etc., and corporations can even ensure the lives of directors and other employees. It is necessary to develop comprehensive certificates of insurance in accordance with the specific needs of the business. In some industries, civil liability insurance is enshrined in the statute. More information can be found in the Insurance Act (New Brunswick) or by contacting competent Law&Trust International’s specialists who can assist in registering a company in New Brunswick.
