English translation:legal form of the company
Explanation:
What is meant in my opinion is the form of business organization; abbreviations such as "AG", "GmbH", "Ltd." etc. indicate a company's legal form, i.e. whether it is a sole proprietorship, partnership, or corporation - all of which have their own characteristics as to liability etc.
Hope this helps,
Regards,
Susanne
