When someone says “company” to you, chances are you will think of the standard, private companies limited by shares, that are most common throughout the UK. However, there are a number of other types of incorporated entity that accountants should be aware of, in order to be able to assist their clients in meeting the various statutory requirements, and to guide new businesses into choosing the right structure for them.
This webinar will focus on other incorporated entities such as qualifying partnerships, companies limited by guarantee and branches of overseas companies registered in the UK, all of which also fall under the provisions of the Companies Act 2006. We will explore the differences between them, and the accounting and reporting requirements of each.
The webinar will focus on various entities covered by the Companies Act 2006, other than private companies limited by shares. The entities to be discussed will be:
- Limited & Qualifying Partnerships;
- Limited Liability Partnerships;
- Companies Limited by Guarantee;
- UK Societas entities; and
- UK branches of overseas entities.
