Limited By Guarantee Company Formation



A Private company limited by guarantee is a company structure chiefly used for non-profit organisations that require corporate status. A Private company limited by guarantee does not feature a share capital and its members are guarantors instead of being shareholders. If in case the company is dissolved, struck off, wounded up or 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.

  • Easy to set up
  • Members liability is limited
  • A limited by guarantee company can hold property and borrow money in its own name
  • A limited by guarantee company is accountable to the democratic control of members
