All Forms of Companies Incorporated

It is important that you choose the right company structure to suit your business model. The three most common company formats are;

  • Private Limited Company - LTD

The vast majority of companies incorporated the the UK are private limited companies. These are companies limited by shares. Commonly known as LTD. Shareholders are entitled to a share of the company profits. However, if the company to go out of business,  their responsibility for company debts is limited to the value of their shares in the company.

  • Limited by Guarantee

A company limited by guarantee is similar to a private limited company. Instead of shareholders, this company format has guarantors who would contribute an amount towards the debts should the business go under. Non-profit organisations such as charities and clubs mainly use this format.

  • Limited Liability Partnership - LLP

Limited Liability Partnerships are commonly formed by professionals such as Accountants, GPs and Solicitors. They are similar to an ordinary business partnership. Partners share the profits and pay tax on their share of the profits themselves. However, they are not personally liable for any debts the business cannot pay.

Whatever the company format you choose, we will register your company the same day. The only caveat is that how soon Companies House can shift through their workload.
