How many people are required to form a company limited by guarantee?


Aloha - I want to form a limited by guarantee company. A few mates are going to be involved, but not everybody wants their name on a public register. So, I was thinking I would just list myself as the sole member. Is that okay, or is there a minimum number of people that need to be involved to start a limited by guarantee company?



You only need one person to set up a limited company, so you can name yourself on the application form as the sole director and sole guarantor. This means you have full control of the company, so all responsibilities and decisions lie with you.

Whilst you can register a company on your own, there is no limit to the number of guarantors and directors your company can have, so you can add additional directors and guarantors during the company formation process or at some point in the future.
