In the case of an AG, liability is limited to the company’s capital. Should the share capital be fully paid under subscription, the shareholder is not liable to the company. Should the share capital only be partly paid under subscription, the shareholder is liable for the pending share capital and is to pay it at a later date.
Within the scope of any liability action that may arise, liability may be extended to the Board of Directors, company management and the auditing agency.
The Board of Directors can be made jointly liable for unpaid OASI premiums, withholding tax contributions and direct federal tax, as long as the Board of Directors was responsible for paying these contributions on behalf of the company.
