Types of Company formation in the UK
Public Limited Company (PLC)
A public limited company or PLC is a company that makes its shares or debentures saleable and accessible to the public domain or general public at large. These types of companies begin operating as private limited companies and then get registered as a PLC for the purpose of raising capital for their business.
For being registered as a public limited company, the company should already possess the share capital of at least £50,000, out of which 25% of the share capital should be paid up before the company starts to trade. Also, public limited companies should have a company secretary and two directors before they get officially registered as a public limited company.
We offer transparent and excellent services for public limited company formation in the UK. Our agents provide great assistance to the shareholders and directors in building a public limited company.
A company limited by shares
A private company limited by shares is the most often opted option for company formation in the UK. They are the ones that mention ‘private limited’ at the end of their official name. One of the reasons why this type of company is preferred amongst the masses is because, in case of wounding up or insolvency, the amount that the shareholders responsible in that scenario is only limited to the reserves of the company.
On the other side, only a single person or a sole trader is held liable for the income generated and debts related to the company. In case of non-payment of the debts, his assets can be confiscated in order to make payments for the debts. Besides, there are no strict requirements regarding the share capital as it can be incorporated with an investment made with a small amount.
A company limited by guarantee
For the formation of a private company limited by guarantee, the guarantors of the company give their consent to the amount that they all will pay when the company winds up. This way it becomes limited by the guarantee of the guarantors as they bound themselves to a specific amount in case of company wound up.
This type of company formation is done when setting up a social or non-profit enterprise, charities, clubs, etc. This gives the facility to pay a less amount in the event they decide to shut off the organization. There is no requirement of share capital or for even shareholders for that matter. Guarantors or incorporates a company agreed upon paying a negligible amount as low as £1 when the company winds up.
Regardless of the type of company formation services you require, we offer to register your company in an efficient and stress-free manner.
