Business entities you can open in South Korea

1) Joint Stock Company (chusikhoesa)

This is the most commonly used corporate vehicle, as it offers shareholders limited liability, and shares are generally freely transferable.

2) Limited liability company (yuhanhoesa)

As with a joint-stock company, the liability of all shareholders is limited to the amount of their share capital contribution to the company. However, the individual character of each shareholder is taken more into account, transfer of equity is limited, and the company is not open to the public.

3) Private limited company (yuhanchaek-imhoesa)

The liability of shareholders is also limited to the amount of their share capital contribution to the company. In contrast with a limited liability company, internally a private limited company is a type of trade association.

4) General partnership company (hapmyunghoesa)

Members bear direct, joint, and unlimited liability in relation to the business's creditors. This entity is appropriate for an enterprise jointly owned by a small number of persons with a close association.

5) Limited partnership company (hapjahoesa)

This consists of at least one member with unlimited liability and at least one member with limited liability. 

6) Branch and Liaison Office
