Company Types

We offer guidance in choosing the legal structure that suits your business needs,these include;

  • Limited Company
  • Business Partnership
  • Limited Partnership 
  • Limited Liability Partnerships

 

Limited Company

A limited company is an organisation that you can set up to run your business.

It’s responsible in its own right for everything it does and its finances are separate to your personal finances.

Any profit it makes is owned by the company, after it pays Corporation Tax. The company can then share its profits.

 

Business Partnership

In a business partnership, you and your business partner (or partners) personally share responsibility for your business.

You can share all your business’ profits between the partners. Each partner pays tax on their share of the profits.

 

Limited Partnership

The liability for debts that can’t be paid in a limited partnership is unequally shared by its partners. This means:

  • ‘general’ partners can be personally liable for all the partnerships’ debts
  • ‘limited’ partners are only liable up to the amount they initially invest in the business

 

Limited Liability Partnerships

The partners in a limited liability partnership aren’t personally liable for debts the business can’t pay. Their liability is limited to the amount of money they invest in the business.
