For the liability of your GmbH the GmbH law applies. Towards creditors the GmbH is usually only liable with its corporate assets.


You as a partner are usually not liable with your private assets, but there are exceptions:


  • in the case of the so-called Durchgriffshaftung (for example with claims for damages)
  • if you take out a personal loan for the company
  • if you enter into a guarantee for the company
  • If you as a managing director violate the "diligence of a prudent businessman" according to § 347 HGB (German Commercial Code), until you are obliged to compensate for the damage incurred
