To legally facilitate the sale and distribution of software on a world-wide scale, you need the legal structure to do so.
the last 6 years, LibrePlan was supported by a small company. When
starting a business in the Netherlands, most people decide to set up a
'sole proprietorship', or in Dutch an eenmanszaak. This worked
fine for the first couple of years. But with a lot of LibrePlan clients
in the fortune 500 companies list something had to change.
That is why on January 22nd 2020 the LibePlan Enterprise B.V. was incorporated. A "B.V." is a Dutch legal entity in the form of a 'private limited company', or in Dutch a besloten vennootschap (BV). More on what a B.V. exactly is can be found on the Dutch goverment website.
