Limited By Guarantee

A popular choice for those looking to establish a non-profit venture

Why Choose Limited By Guarantee?

A Private Company Limited By Guarantee is a corporate structure chiefly used for non-profit organisations that require corporate status. Limited by guarantee means a company does not feature a share capital, and its members are guarantors instead of being shareholders. In the scenario where the company is dissolved, struck off, or otherwise removed from the register then the members’ liability is limited to the amount they agree to contribute to the company’s assets. Limited by guarantee companies are formed for charities, community projects, clubs, societies and other related company structures.

The main advantages of a limited by guarantee company is that they are exceptionally easy to incorporate, and the company is accountable to the democratic control of its members. In addition, property can be owned, and financial matters conducted, in the company’s name.

Why Our Companies Are Better

Other formation agents incorporate companies with an “agent director” – an employee of the formation agent becomes the Founding Director for the new company, then resigns and transfers the shares to the customer. This frequently leads to confusion, and in the worst cases can cause damaging delays in financial transactions in the formative period for the company. At Formations House, the company is established with you, as our customer, as the Founding Director and shareholder from the outset. The Companies House registry will show you as owning the company from the outset, avoiding the possibility of these delays, and further confirming your company’s integrity.
