What is Intrastat? Intrastat is a system that collects statistics…
Limited company (Ltd) is a general term for a business organization wherein owners’ assets and income are separate and distinct from the company’s assets and income, known as limited liability. A limited company is a specific legal entity that is either “limited by shares” or “limited by guarantee” in its ownership. The finances and conduct of a Limited Company are independent of its owners.
The main differences between a sole trader/partnership and a limited company are:
- Limited companies have legal status as distinct financial entities separate from their shareholders.
- Limited companies are owned by shareholders, each of which holds a portion of the total wealth of the company.
- A shareholder is only liable for the amount of capital that they have invested in a limited company.
- Limited companies have different accounting regulations and compliance issues.
- Limited companies pay corporation tax on company profits, while the shareholders pay income tax on dividends and salaries.
