Private Limited Companies (PLC)

Private Limited Companies are by far the most common type of business structure in Zimbabwe. They can range from a very small operations to massive companies with multimillion-dollar turnovers.

It is remarkably popular because it allows the sharing of profits amongst the shareholders whilst also offering restricted financial liability. The shareholders are only responsible for company debts up to the value of the shares they hold in the company. So their personal assets will be protected, should the company encounter any financial difficulties.

We offer a selection of Private Limited Company Packages designed to make registering a private company as easy and straightforward 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 primary benefit of a PBC over not registering a company all together is the limited liability protection which it provides for the PBC members – meaning their personal finances are protected in the event of the company encountering 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.
