Choosing the type of Limited Company

Private Limited company by Shares (Ltd) – Most common

By far the most common Limited Companies are formed this way for Small Businesses, Contractors and Freelancers. The Ltd Company issues shares and profits can be distributed through Dividends. The liability of a member of a Company Limited by Shares is limited to the amount, if any, unpaid on the members shares.

Once the shares are fully paid, then in general there is no further liability for the Shareholder.
Hence if the company becomes insolvent the members are not required to make any further contribution to discharge its debts.

Company Limited by Guarantee

This type of company is commonly used for Charities
The liability of members is limited to the amount that they undertake to contribute to the assets of the company in the event of this being wound up.

If such a company is wound up, each member may be required to contribute up to the amount of their guarantee towards the payment of debts incurred while they were a member. The amounts involved are normally small.

Public Limited Company (PLC)

The key difference between a Ltd Company and PLC is that a Ltd Company cannot offer their shares or other securities to the public, whereas public companies can.

The other main difference is the requirement to have an increased security afforded to creditors by having a minimum allotted share capital of £50,000 before it can obtain a trading certificate as a PLC.
