Because the mini GmbH is a legal person, she can acquire ownership and have a private fortune. Because of this independence is also taxable and can both complain, as also be sued. The rights and obligations of the company are detached from its shareholders and management. ARAG experts point out that a mini GmbH can have only a General Manager differently than the conventional GmbH.

However, the mini GmbH can convert to a limited liability company. She is expert according to ARAG when it has reached a capital of 25,000 euro. The mini GmbH is required each year to make up a quarter of their profit (net income), minus an any loss brought forward from the previous year, in their reserves.

The above mentioned Exceptions to the limitation of liability are according to the ARAG experts abuse cases, the insolvency abduction or unpaid social and tax payments. In these cases, the Managing Director and also the partner of mini GmbH with the whole private fortune in recourse can be taken.
