The Different Types of a Limited Company
Private Limited Company by Shares – Most Popular
This is the most popular type of limited company and is the favourite for freelancers, small businesses and contractors. The limited company typically issues profits and shares via dividends.
If you are a member of a business that is limited by shares, the obligation that is owed is limited to the number of unpaid member shares if any.
If the company becomes insolvent, the shareholder is not legally required to make any contributions to offset any debts of the business.
Company Limited by Guarantee
This business structure is mainly favoured by charities.
If the company is dissolved, it is the shareholders responsibility to contribute to the total sum of money they agreed to guarantee for it.
If a company that is limited by guarantee is liquidated or wound up, then every member will need to contribute to the amount they guaranteed. This is to offset the debts the company owes while they were a shareholder. The amounts involved are typically relatively small.

Some of the businesses that favour this type of company formation include freelancers, small businesses and contractors. The limited company will typically issue their profits and shares via dividends.
Shareholders of companies limited by shares are limited to the amount unpaid if any on the members’ shares. Once the member pays their shares in full, the shareholder does not have any liability for the debts of the company.
