is an one of a legal business company type. In these limited companies the
control of the companies and the ownership of the companies are in the hands of
different kind of people. The owners of these limited companies are called as shareholders
and members of the company. Simply the liability is limited to this type of
companies. Limited companies allow their entrepreneurs to keep finances and assets
separate from the business. This means the shareholders who have invested money
to the company are only responsible for the money which they have invested to
the business. They are no more responsible than they invested. This is good way
to do investment without risk to the personal wealth.

advantages, low risk, respect and better professional status by establishing a
limited liability company. If they establish a partnership business they will
have to face many disadvantages.
