The company law allows an unlimited company to change its legal status to a private limited company. There are two types of private limited company, a company limited by shares and a company limited by guarantee.
The re-registration involved the company directors to pass a special resolution.
The Companies House form RR06 for the application to re-register from unlimited company to private limited company must be submitted to Companies House together with the following important documents:
- A copy of the special resolution
- A printed copy of the amended articles of association.
- Statement of capital if the re-registration is to a company limited by shares
- Statement of guarantee if the re-registration is to a company limited by guarantee
Companies House also provides other company re-registration services to UK companies.
