The most common company forms are the SL (Sociedad Limitada - limited liability company) and the SA (Sociedad Anónima - corporation). As a matter of fact, the shareholders are not liable for the company’s debts. Both types of companies have a similar tax treatment. The SL is some more flexible (less formal) and therefore has a lower maintenance cost. The SA is suitable for large companies and has a few advantages: it can issue bonds and debentures and it can be listed at the Stock Exchange. Also, the transfer of shares are more easily done with a SA than with a SL. Also, for a holding structure, the SA might be the better vehicle.
