A Limited Liability structure can be greatly important to SMEs and offers protection to directors and shareholders that are heavily invested in a business. Limited Liability is a legal structure whereby shareholders or directors are formally responsible for their company’s debts only over the value of their shares. 

The directors will only be liable for debts of a certain quantum, this is up to the value of the shares they hold in the business. Incorporating as a limited company provides shareholders and directors with particular fiscal and legal protection from any upcoming company bankruptcy issues. 

To be structured as limited liability, a business must be incorporated at Companies House similar to the Limited Liability Company (LLC).


The purpose of insolvency is to promote the restoration of the solvency of the debtor ( including a natural person as a debtor) and the protection of the interests of creditors in the event of limited solvency or bankruptcy of the debtor by measuring the interests of the person in fiscal difficulty and creditors.

The enrollment dynamic of limited liability companies was declining in the period from 2011 to 2017 but at the same time, the number of liquidated companies has constantly increased. As a result, the legislator made some important advancements in the nonsupervisory acts and it helps to do better account and financial statements during insolvency proceedings, but some further advancements should be done in the future (to determine that financial statements should be submitted to the State Revenue Service).
