Register a guarantee company in Alba, registering a Scottish company limited by guarantee!

Registering a company limited by guarantee in Scotland: the types of organisations which are typically registered as limited companies by guarantee include clubs, membership groups, trade unions, sporting bodies, property management companies, flat management companies, tenants' organisations, non-government organisations and charities. However, in Scotland charitable companies can decide to be set up as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) if they wish. Launched in 2011, this structure allows charities to incorporate without having to become an actual company.

Often, the directors of a limited company by guarantee will be elected by the members, but it is possible for the Scottish non-profit companies to be organised in such a way that members themselves can be directors. How the directors are appointed will be set out in the Scottish guarantee company's articles of association. In some cases, directors are able to appoint futures ones; while in others, organisations and agencies are permitted to nominate people for directorial positions. As a guarantee company by organisation is a legal entity in its own right. It is able to enter into contracts, employ people and purchase assets such as property.

Company limited by guarantee registration in Scotland: typically used by charities and sporting organisations, registering a company limited by guarantee in Scotland has numerous benefits. Unlike private companies, companies limited by guarantee do not distribute profits and do not have shareholders. Instead they effectively owned by their members, who act as guarantors in the event of the company being liquidated. These members benefit from limited liability, meaning the amount of money they guarantee is nominal – sometimes as low as £1.

Setting-Up a Company Limited by Guarantee in Scotland

They are able to apply for charitable status if needed and can generate profits, although the money made cannot be distributed to members and should be put back into the company to promote its objects.

Coddan operates a dedicated phone line for Scottish company limited by guarantee incorporation inquires and has a range of services and packages available to suit every need.

In Scotland, companies limited by guarantee are registered by organisations that won't be profiting from them, such as established charities, clubs or societies. The profits from the Scottish non-for-profit enterprise are not given out to its members and are instead used for other purposes. One of the main reasons it's used is because the structure protects those who are running the venture from being held responsible for any debts that may occur. This type of a company does not have shareholders; instead, it has guarantors, or members.

In order to register a company limited by guarantee in Scotland, you need at least one person to nominate as a company officer, such person can be appointed as a Scottish non-profit company' director and its member. But if the Scottish company limited by guarantee is going to be used for charitable purposes, the legal requirement is three people. It's possible, however, that a director can also be the secretary as well as a member. In order to obtain charitable status, an application must be made to the Charity Commission. Coddan Formations Agency can assist with this to ensure the process is handled in a swift and professional manner.

None of the company officers need to be resident in Scotland, or to be British citizens. They can be from anywhere in the UK or world. However, for the purposes of registering the Scottish company limited by guarantee, a registered office address in Scotland must be supplied, and all official company documentation must be kept there.

This doesn't mean the company has to operate from the office address provided because a company limited by guarantee can be run from anywhere. At Coddan Formations Agency, as part of our guarantee company registration offers, we can supply an official legal office address in Edinburgh. All correspondence from the authorities, such as Companies House and HMRC, that is sent to it is forwarded on to our clients by us.

As with all firms in the UK, companies limited by guarantee in Scotland are obliged to file annual reports and annual accounts before the deadline every year, or be subject to possible penalties and fines. Where guarantee companies are operating as a charity, the files will also need to be submitted to the Charity Commission. Coddan's post-formation service includes preparing and filing these.
