Why are the subdivisions and institutions established?

Representations and branches may act as separated subdivisions of the legal person. The representation carries out its activities outside the registered office of the legal person, representing its interests and carrying out the protection of those interests. The branch is also located outside the registered office of the legal person; it carries out functions reserved to it by the legal person, including representation. The institution is an organisation established by a legal person to carry out non-commercial activities.
