EU-VRi is organized as an EEIG.
The purpose of a European Economic Interest Grouping is to facilitate or develop the economic activities of its members by a pooling of resources, activities or skills. This will produce better results than the members acting alone. It is not intended that the grouping should make profits for itself. If it does make any profits, they will be apportioned among the members and taxed accordingly. Its activities must be related to the economic activities of its members, but cannot replace them. An EEIG must have at least two members from different Member States. An EEIG does not necessarily have to be formed with capital. Members are free to use alternative means of financing.
