In case the company is founded by just one founder, there is no Memorandum of Association but the Founder's Deed instead. The Memorandum of Association or the Founder's Deed must be in the form of notarial entry.

The founder can also authorise, on the basis of a special Power of Attorney, his or her general donee or attorney to found a company on his of her behalf.

Corporations are established in two phases. In the first phase, the company is founded by writing up a Memorandum of Association or a Founder's Deed, in the second phase - the company is finally created as of the date of entering it into the commercial register. The fact is that the mere founding of a company does not mean its legal existence.
