A company, in law and accountancy, is a particular legal form of carrying out, by a person, an economic activity: it may be formed by a single person (single-member company) or by several persons called partners (natural and/or legal persons) united in a collective enterprise. It is subject to the company law (a branch of commercial law) of various countries and, depending on the legal form, can be of various types (e.g., joint stock company/corporation).
