Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Firstly, a private limited company is a company in which one or more shareholders owns the company and receives a relative proportion of the profits relative to how many shares they hold this is called the dividend. Private limited companies raise money by selling shares to people. The firm also has a separate legal identity, meaning that it can be sued and sue in the companies name and not the owners name. There is limited liability of the owners, meaning that the shareholders losses are limited to the amount of money which they put into the firm, therefore, if the business fails, then the creditors cannot take the personal assets of the people who own the firm.

This is an example of where the limited liability is useful. Overall, there are many disadvantages and few advantages of opening a burger store as a Ltd company, the disadvantages are mainly the exposition of the companies secrets and any new capital or additions to the product line through the report of the finance readily available to all shareholders. This would result in more fierce competition with other rival companies. The main advantage is the limited liability and that only the company can be sued, and not the people who manage it, or the shareholders, if a law suit arises. ?? ?? ?? ??
