An analysis of the law of joint ventures (jungtine veikla) and partnerships (tikrosios ukines bendrijos) in Lithuania. Joint Ventures in Lithuania are an import from German law and are type of one-project 'partnership' which, however, is neither an entity nor a company. A partnership (tikroji ukine bendrija) is an entity and a company; it, in contrast with joint ventures, can have employees; it files tax returns and pays income and other tax. (Joint ventures do not have employees, nor do they pay tax.) It is problematic as to whether joint ventures can (legally) have bank accounts or issue invoices.
The proposed law on "mazosios bendrijos" is also analyzed.
