Let us know if you need help setting up a private limited company

A private limited company is a particular type of incorporated company. Unlike a public company, it has certain restrictions on its ownership, including a restriction on the sale of shares to the public.

Private limited companies and shares

Shares in the company are allocated to individuals or companies who collectively own the limited company and the shareholders’ liability is limited by law to the value of the shares. In this way, private limited companies protect their shareholders from financial liability to some extent.
