Limited Company Formation

When you set out to form a new company, the first and most obvious decision that you need to make is what type of company it will be registered as at Companies House. This is not a straightforward issue and we will talk you through the various options.

Depending on the nature of your business and the types of things that you wish to accomplish as a company, you have a wide range of possible options.

A public limited company (PLC) is a very common designation. This represents a company that is allowed to offer its shares to the general public.

Another common designation is known as a private company limited by shares, also referred to simply as "Limited" or "Ltd". This type of company has shareholders who have limited liability; unlike PLCs, the shares of a Limited company may not be offered to the public.

Limited liability partnerships, or LLPs, are corporate bodies whose legal existence is generally independent of that of its members.

And of course we also have Sole Traders, and Partnerships. Let  us guide you through this maze!
