Private Limited Companies (PLC)

Private Limited Companies (PLCs) are undoubtedly Zimbabwe’s most known and accepted company structure. They can range from a small to medium (SME) business operations to very large companies turning over millions or even billions of dollars.

It is widely accepted because it allows the shareholders to share profits amongst themeselves at the same time also offering limited liability to the shareholders. The owners of the companyare responsible for the debts of the company only up to the value of the shares they have in the business. So their personal property are by law protected if the company run into any financial challenges.

We offer a selection of Private Limited Company Packages designed to make registering a private limited company in Zimbabwe as easy as possible.

Private Business Corporation (PBC)

The Private Business Corporation structure is often used by those who want to operate as very small businesses, as individuals or sole traders or in industries which traditionally operate as partnerships, such as lawyers, accountants or architects. The major advantage of a PBC over not registering a company all together is the limited liability protection which it offers to the PBC members – meaning the PBC members personal finances and property are protected in the event of the company encountering any financial difficulties.

A PBC is also beneficial as it allows the company partners to remain separate to some extent – each partner is responsible for paying their own individual tax. We offer a selection of Private Business Corporation Packages designed to make registering a Private Business Corporation as easy and straightforward as possible.
