About Limited Company
Unlike Sole Traders, a Limited Company enjoys separate legal identity from its members or subscribers. With this, members of the Company are more bound by the business obligations of the Company. In case the Company is not able to meet its obligations, then the personal assets of its members are protected.
Limited Companies can be limited by shares or guarantee. A limited by shares company can further be a public company or a private company. Being a legal entity, the Company must maintain accounts, file them to the Company House, and get the accounts audited if they exceed certain limits. Likewise, the Company must file their tax returns for each year to HMRC.
