What is Company Limited by Guarantee?

A private company limited by guarantee is a type of legal entity that used primarily for non-profit organisations or communities concern with charitable purpose activities that require legal personality. A company limited by guarantee does not have a share capital or shareholders, but instead has members who act as guarantors. The guarantors give an undertaking to contribute a nominal amount (ie. ?10) in the event of the winding up of the company.

To note that there is now an alternative type of legal entity available for non-profit venture known as “Community Interest Company – (‘CIC’)”. The CIC format (Community Interest Company) became a legal option in 2006 and specifically tailor made for small and medium sized none-profit ventures intended for social and community interests. To thrive, CIC can be used for the same purpose as a private company limited by guarantee but a guarantee company is still a better option for most non-profit ventures, especially if there is a political element which is forbidden for a CIC and there is no need to prove its activities within a company limited by guarantee are carried on for the benefit or interest of the community. The typical example of the use of a company limited by guarantee is for property management purpose.
