Both Public Limited companies and limited liability companies are considered as large enterprises.  The main difference between SV and a medium and small size NV/BV is that the former a supervisory board is mandatory, while for the other two it is optional. A supervisory board is made up by at least 3 members and it has power to approve certain decisions made by the management board, such as changes in share capital, mergers and takeovers, changes in article of incorporation, appointment of executive members of directors, among other.
