Limited Companies

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: 

  1. Limited companies have legal status as distinct financial entities separate from their shareholders. 

  2. Limited companies are owned by shareholders, each of which holds a portion of the total wealth of the company. 

  3. A shareholder is only liable for the amount of capital that they have invested in a limited company. 

  4. Limited companies have different accounting regulations and compliance issues. 

  5. Limited companies pay corporation tax on company profits, while the shareholders pay income tax on dividends and salaries.

A limited company is a legal business entity that is separate from its owners. It offers limited liability protection, meaning that the owner’s personal assets are separate from the company’s liabilities. The company’s finances and legal obligations are distinct from those of its owners. 

The corporation tax rate for limited companies in the UK varies depending on their profits. From April 2023: The main rate of Corporation Tax will be 25% for Companies with profits of £250,000 or more – this applies to all profits. A Small Profits Rate of 19% will exist for Companies with profits of £50,000 or less. The main rate will taper between £50,000 and £250,000 

For companies with profits above this threshold, there is a marginal relief system that gradually increases the tax rate. However, it’s advisable to check the current rates with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) as they may have changed since then. 

A private limited company, also known as an Ltd or Ltd. company, is a type of limited company that restricts the transferability of shares and does not offer its shares to the general public. It typically has “Ltd” or “Limited” in its name. This type of company is commonly chosen by small to medium-sized businesses.

I have been using Lanop Accountants for more than 3 years, and could not recommend them more highly to any one starting out in business or established business practice. Their professionalism, promptness and excellent customer service makes them in my opinion second to none.
I used Lanop accountants to file some paperwork with HMRC as a non-dom resident. I’ve been very happy and impressed with their work so far. Zaib has been very knowledgeable and helpful. I recommend them and plan to use them again.
