Why Choose a Limited by Guarantee Omitting the Word Limited?
Usually the main reason a Limited by Guarantee Company is incorporated is for a Charity or community project purposes. This is purely because this type of company protects the people running it from the personal liability of the company’s debts. A Limited by Guarantee Omitting Limited Company, is a non-profit making company and would be chosen if you do not wish ‘LIMITED’ or ‘LTD’ to be shown at the end of the company name.
Limited by Guarantee Omitting Limited Explained
For a Limited by Guarantee Company Omitting Limited, the same rules apply as Limited by Guarantee. The only difference is that the company will not contain LIMITED or LTD at the end of the company name.
- A Limited by Guarantee Company does not have any shares within the company.
- This company does not have Shareholders; instead you can appoint Directors and Subscribers/Members.
- Limited by guarantee is to protect the people running the company from personal liability for the company's debts.
- As there are no shares in the company no company profits can be distributed to the members as dividends, all profit is kept within the company. Members also cannot claim on the company assets.
- A Confirmation statement and accounts must be filed each year.
- No share capital is shown on the balance sheet for the company Accounts. The Company registrar will automatically state this company is a Limited by Guarantee.
Officers in the company
A Limited by Guarantee Company must appoint at least one director. The director(s) will be responsible for the day to day running of the company. The powers the directors have within the company will depend on what is stated in the company articles.
At least one member must be appointed in the Limited by Guarantee Company. The members usually have the right to vote and attend the general meetings, this means they have the ultimate control over the company as they can appoint and terminate the directors.
Members of the Limited by Guarantee Company can have different voting rights which in turn gives them more or less power within the company.
A Limited by Guarantee omitting the word Limited Company is usually incorporated within 3 to 24 hours (dependent on the company registrar) and is then ready to trade. However, we have previously incorporated a company within 6 minutes but we are dependent on the workload at Companies House.
