Cooperative economic associations – tailor-made for cooperation
Cooperative businesses can run under a variety of different corporate structures. A cooperative economic association is often ideal, because the relevant legislation is designed to handle a democratic approach to ownership. All joint owners/members of the association have one vote each and they decide jointly on what to do with a surplus. A cooperative economic association -ekonomisk förening (in common with a limited company) is a legal entity. An Ekonomisk förening must comprise at least three people or companies and the members must decide jointly on the size of the start-up capital.
