PUBLIC UTILITY FOUNDATIONS AND LEGAL PERSONS
Some users may have problems accessing commercial register and economic activity services. We are working on solving these issues.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.
The IAPMEI portal provides information about support measures for companies.
On this page you will find a number of services aimed at Foundations as well as at obtaining and maintaining the Public Utility status.
- Foundations are non-profit legal persons, endowed with sufficient assets and irrevocably allocated to the pursuit of an aim of social interest.
- The declaration, or status, of Public Utility is attributed to non-profit legal persons - associations, private foundations that have not automatically acquired the status of public utility and, furthermore, certain cooperatives - that pursue aims of general interest in cooperation with the central or local Administration in terms of deserving such distinction from the Administration.
