Joint-ventures-in-GibraltarForeign enterprisers come to Gibraltar because of the numerous investment opportunities in various industries this country offers, but also because the new Companies Act allows them to set up companies through simplified procedures. In the case of those coming to the Rock for a temporary project or for a collaboration with a local company, the solution is the joint venture. This type of entity is defined as a joint business project in which two or more parties contribute with the purpose of realizing a specific undertaking. The joint venture implies each participant to be liable for their own profits, costs and losses, while the venture is a separate legal entity. Joint ventures in Gibraltar can be regarded as “short-term” limited liability companies or as partnerships.
