So why do we have Limited companies and what is the difference?
A ‘Ltd’ or ‘Limited’ company is setup to allow a set of liabilities and responsibilities of the organisation to be separated from an individual. There are 4 types of limited companies which are split across ‘Limited by Shares’ and ‘Limited by guarantee’.
Private Limited by Shares:
Limited by shares are companies that usually make profit. These companies are legally separate from the people who run it.
Private Limited by guarantee:
Limited by guarantee companies are usually not for profit. This company will have guarantors with a set guaranteed amount.
Private unlimited company:
A private unlimited company may or may not have shares capital but there is no limit to its members liability.
Public limited company:
A Public Limited Company or PLC for short, has a share capital and limits each member to an amount of unpaid on the shares. It may also offer its shares for sale on the stock exchange.
With these company types there is also a great perception that a company itself not the individuals who run them are solely accountable for any legal actions against them. Therefore, because the directors and owners cannot be made accountable, they often hide behind the company name when things go wrong.
Therefore, when you check ltd company you need to assess the financial risk of the business but also the credibility of the individuals who run it.

The data is acquired from regulatory sources and we up-date our Risk Index associated with a company on a daily basis. We take the financial ratios of a company and compare them to the average within their industry sector. We then increase index points for courts appearances, public notices and use sentiment analysis for social feeds to highlight the any stories of interest.
We also increase our index points for a company if a director has been with a previous company that has gone into administration or liquidation.
