[edit] Public Limited Liability Company or PLC

(also Inc in US_en) 
  • Publicly tradeable shares
  • The owners are _not_ liable for legal actions and debts the company may face
  • Managed by a CEO elected by a Board of Directors (Board) which in turn is elected by the share holders in scheduled meetings.
  • Extra share holder meetings can usually be called up if enough share holders deem it necessary for some reason
  • Usually listed in one or many w:Stock exchanges
  • Rules of stock exchanges define some minimums to capital, cash flow and market value for PLCs to be viable for trading

[edit] Genral Partnership

  • Formed by two or more persons
  • The owners are all liable for legal actions and debts the company may face _personally_

[edit] Limited Partnership

  • Like a General Partnership exept for the fact that there is/are so called silent partners who just invest capital into the business and are not liable for legal actions and debts the company may face

[edit] Sole Trader

  • A sole trader is liable for legal actions and debts personally

I think these last ones are not so commonplace

[edit] Co-operative

There are two kinds of Co-operatives,

  1. those owned collectively by the customers
  2. those owned and managed collectively by the Workforce

==Limited Liability Partnership== (In UK at least, very new)

  • You'll have to see the UK law books about this one
