Personal Liability Company ( Inc. )What is a Personal Liability Company Inc.?

A Personal Liability Company Inc. is a private company which is mainly used by ‘associations’ such as Lawyers, Engineers and Accountants. The Company’s Name must end with the word “Incorporated”. It operates on the principle of ‘personal liability’. This term means that the directors of the company, as well as previous directors, will be responsible for the debts of the company. The owner of a Personal Liability Company Inc. is considered separate from the company. That means the creditors cannot seize the owner’s personal assets such as a home or Investments.
