According to section 14 of the German Civil Code (BGB), an entrepreneur is a natural or legal person or a partnership with legal personality who or which, when entering into a legal transaction, acts in the exercise of his or its trade, business or profession. An entrepreneur is therefore anyone who runs a business alone or with others. An entrepreneur can also act as a consumer if he/she concludes a legal transaction for purposes that can predominantly be attributed neither to his/her commercial nor to his/her independent professional activity.
