  • It can increase or decrease by partner agreements
  • It can be formed by monetary or non-monetary contributions
  • It is divided into shares or stakes according to the type of company
  • Each shareholder or partner owns a proportion of the company’s property based on their contribution, and each share or participation grants its owner political and economic rights over the company.
