A limited company has separate finances from your personal finances. So any profit made is owned by the company, and, after corporation tax, the company can share the profits.  
You can either have a Limited by Shares Company or Limited by Guarantee Company. A private company limited by shares is owned by its members, or shareholders. Each member is liable for the original value of the shares they were issued.


  • Quick Set Up.
  •  The company will hold Limited Liability.
  •  The personal assets of the directors and shareholders are protected if the company were to go out of business.
  • No two companies can have the same name, which avoids confusion when trading.
  •  Limited companies tend to be more affordable to run. This is due to lower accounting fees and taxes.
  • Limited companies can remain dormant for as long as you want. This allows you to save the company name.
  • It is easy to gain funding through shareholders and banks.
  • Ownership of the company can easily be changed through the sale of shares.
  • There is no obligation for a limited company to start trading within any set time period.
