Private limited companies
By far the most popular type of company formation in the UK is a private company limited by shares, commonly known as a limited company. Its purpose is to make a profit and distribute it to the shareholders. The main advantage of this type of corporate structure is to protect the personal assets of the owners (shareholders) as their liability is restricted to the value of the shares issued.
Limited liability partnerships (LLPs) are increasing in popularity and are ideal for professionals and consultants who wish to retain the flexibility of a traditional partnership but require the benefits of a limited liability company. Rapid Formations can quickly and easily form your LLP online - with full Companies House approval in 3 to 6 working hours.
A Limited by Guarantee company is very much like a standard limited company; however, it does not have shareholders but instead has guarantors who undertake to contribute an amount of money should the business be wound up. This type of corporate entity is normally used by non-profit organisations such as clubs, associations and charities.
