Charity Company Limited By Guarantee

If you're thinking about starting a charitable company then you'll need to find the right legal body. A charity company limited by guarantee is ideal because it can be formed with non-profit objectives in mind. "Guarantors" take the place of shareholders and there is no distribution of profit through dividends in the usual manner.
