Such limitations include limiting the owner’s liability to their shares, limits the total number of shareholders to 50. It also restricts shareholders from trading shares publicly.

The LTD is a legal entity on its own. It is separate from its owners – the shareholders.

It is by far the most commonly registered business in Nigeria. This should not be a surprise because it is simple to run.

The personal possessions of a shareholder in LTD are separate from the company’s except the owners use those properties as collateral to secure the business during borrowing.

Moreover, the shareholder’s risk is reduced to only the money they have invested in the company. Check our post on the Types of Companies to know more about the private limited company.
