For centuries, limited companies have been an established way to protect company investors from personal risk in the event of the company defaulting on its debt. The essential concept is simple. A private company limited by guarantee can choose to have only one general member, who undertakes most of the operational tasks of the guarantee company, and limited members whose role is limited to providing investment and whose personal liability is limited to the total that they have invested.

UK companies limited by guarantee are suited to groups wishing to fulfil a charitable or social function without the risk of financial liability. Below is a brief guide to starting one.

Registering a company limited by guarantee allows members to limit the financial liabilities to a guarantee agreed at the time of registration, often £1. This allows a guarantee company to focus on its key mission. To register as a company limited by guarantee, one director and at least one member are required (although the director could in theory hold both roles). The guarantee company can then be registered at Companies House.

If a company limited by guarantee is set to operate as a charity, it must similarly register at Companies House, but should also register with the Charities Commission. In this case, the guarantee company should have at least three members, to be known as 'trustees', in addition to a director and member as stipulated above.

Regardless of the nature of the business structure, a company limited by guarantee will not be able to issue shares and therefore no steps in this direction are necessary.

The company limited by guarantee itself will need a registered office address, details of which must be made available to the public. The company limited by guarantee must have two important pieces of the paperwork: a memorandum of association, and articles of association. Guarantee company formation agents like Coddan can help immeasurably with these documents. The first should detail a company's particulars, the level of its liability guarantee and its aims, social or otherwise.

The latter documents, articles of association, vary between individual companies limited by guarantee and deal with the running of the business and the framework within which it must operate. These may relate to matters such as membership, which could be differentiated into various classes of members, some with restricted rights, the ability to sit on boards or non-voting rights. A company limited by guarantee may also wish to have a subscription fee for its members, helping to raise funds and depending on its aims, objectives and profile.
