Private Limited Company
A Private Limited Company is by far the most popular type of company registered in Zimbabwe and is also known as a limited company or PLC. Its purpose is to make a profit and distribute it to the shareholders. The main advantage of this type of corporate structure is to protect the personal assets of the owners (shareholders) as their liability is restricted to the value of the shares issued.
Private Business Corporation
Private Business Corporations (PBC’s) are increasing in popularity in Zimbabwe and are mostly ideal for home industries and/or small businesses, professionals and consultants who wish to operate as sole traders (such as architects, accountants, doctors, etc.) who wish to retain the flexibility of a traditional partnership, but require the benefits of a Private Limited Company (PLC).
Company Limited by Guarantee
A Limited by Guarantee (LBG) company is very much like a standard limited company; however, it does not have shareholders but instead has guarantors who undertake to contribute an amount of money should the business be wound up. This type of corporate entity is normally used by non-profit organisations such as clubs, associations and charities.
