The exercise of an economic activity in the form of a company aimed at making a profit for the company that can be divided among the shareholders, is called for-profit. Companies that pursue this goal are: partnerships and corporations.

There are types of companies which by law must pursue a goal of mutual benefit, namely to provide directly to shareholders goods, services or job opportunities on terms more favourable than those that the shareholders themselves would find on the market. Companies that serve mutual objectives are co-operatives.
