M1 Mini Introduction In this unit of M1 coursework, I will be comparing between private limited company and public limited company. I have chosen Manchester United FC as an example of private limited company and Tesco for public limited company. I will be evaluating following things from both examples: * Ownership of the business * Liability of the business * Aims and objective of the business * Number of employees * How is profit shared Private Limited Company: Manchester United FC Public Limited Company: Tesco What is the ownership of the business?

The liability of each shareholder is limited to any unpaid shares. Aims of the business? Aims of Manchester United FC will not be to make only profit but also to make the team better and building new and better stadiums.
