Tyt. zeszytu: Tradycja i nowoczesnośćw instytucjach prawnych


The subject of this article is an analysis of performing economic activity on one’s own account in the context of premises of economic activity within the meaning of the entrepreneurs law. Performing economic activity on one’s own account is not literally indicated as one of the premises of economic activity. In doctrine, it is often emphasized that performing economic activity on one’s own account results from one of the legal premises, that is, performing economic activity one one’s own behalf. The author of the article discusses that opinion. He compares historical definitions of economic activity and of an entrepreneur which were included in successive laws within the scope of the presence of concepts related to performing economic activity on one’s own account or on one’s own behalf. Subsequently, the author analyzes both legal concepts in the scope of their presence in different laws and he introduces definitions of performing on one’s own account and on one’s own behalf that are present in the literature. In conclusions, he indicates that it is necessary to distinguish between performing an economic activity on one’s own behalf and on one’s own account. He concludes the performing an economic activity on one’s own account should not be considered as a legal premise of economic activity. However, in practice it is characteristic of all economic activities and it is related to the commercial character which is one of the legal premises of economic activity.
