Company limited by guarantee startup in Northern Ireland: the registration of a not-for-profit company in North of Ireland has never been easier. Since 2009 the legal requirements that regulate the registration of companies limited by guarantee, and maintenance of charitable companies in that country were brought into line with the arrangements in the rest of the United Kingdom.
The integration of the Companies Registry Northern Ireland (CRNI) with Companies House means that there is now just one online system that enables businesses to be registered through a convenient and very quick service.
Coddan's packages for registering a company limited by guarantee include the setting-up of a guarantee company itself, which is where members formally agree to be liable for a specific sum, which could be as low as £1.00. This agreement is specified in the memorandum, and allows the non-profit company to have a separate legal existence from its members, protecting them from asset-loss in the event of the company going into liquidation. This type of non-for profit company is not usually suitable for trading purposes, but is normally registered for the purposes of charities or clubs and other organisations that need to be a legal entity.
At Coddan, we have business consultants who are dedicated to assisting clients with the registration of non-profit entities, and not only can we help you to find a completely unique name for your business, we can also help with every aspect around the incorporation, and ongoing maintenance of the non-profit company. If you are looking for assistance to register a guarantee company in Belfast, please, contact us today to discuss the North of Ireland guarantee company registration requirements!
A non-profit company is required to have a director and a company member(s). However, if there is only one person involved with the registration, that person can fulfil both roles. We provide companies formation packages for worldwide residents over the age of 18. These provide the most straightforward method of non-profit companies formation, including the opening of a business bank account. Your non-profit organisation will be registered and registered within a few hours using our system, and we will provide you with the certificate of incorporation, memorandum and articles of association, by email.
