Foundations and associations

Foundations and associations

Foundations and associations do not have direct owners and shareholders; thus they operate independently. They are run by a board and can employ people on their payroll to undertake tasks. Foundations and associations are very well suited to charitable purposes or carrying out tasks or certain aspects of tasks, over which a business owner is not allowed to exert any influence. In principle, foundations and associations do not pay tax, but if they make a structural profit or are competing with taxpaying bodies, they are assessed for corporate tax.
