Do companies limited by guarantee need a memorandum?


I am aware that you need a memorandum of association to set up a limited by shares company, but nowhere seems to mention if one is required when setting up a limited by guarantee company. Do you happen to know the answer to this question? Thanks a million.



Yes, all companies limited by guarantee are required to have a memorandum of association when they incorporate at Companies House. The same rule applies to limited by shares companies. This document records the names of the first guarantors and their agreement to form the company.

If you register a company online, Companies House (or your formation agent) will provide you with a memorandum when your company is set up. If you choose to register using a postal application, you will be responsible for printing and completing your own memorandum and including it with your application form.
