Lesson-31 TYPE OF BUSINESS ENTITIES

There are two types of entities: • Commercial organizations • Non-commercial organizations

Commercial Organization Commercial organization is the entity that is working to earn profit. At the end of the financial year, the profit is distributed among the owners of the business. Normally, commercial organizations include:

• Sole proprietorship • Partnership, and • Limited Company

Non Commercial Organization Non Commercial organization is the entity that is not working to earn profit. At the end of the financial year, the profit is not distributed among the owners, but is used for the objective of the organization. Normally, commercial organizations include:

• Co-Operative institutions • NGO’s • Trusts

Types of Commercial Organization Sole proprietorship business

It is a business that is owned by an individual. He may have employed any number of persons to work for him, but he is the sole owner of the business. Partnership

Partnership is the type of business where more than one person (called partners) enters into a legal agreement to run a business on a profit and loss sharing basis. Limited Company Limited company is a legal entity, separate from its owners (called shareholders). The basic difference between a partnership and a limited company is the concept of limited liability.

• If a partnership business runs into losses and is unable to pay its liabilities, its partners will have to pay the liabilities from their own wealth.

• Whereas, in case of limited company, the shareholders don’t lose anything more than the amount of capital they have contributed in the company. i.e., their personal wealth is not at stake and their liability is limited to the amount of share capital they have contributed.

The concept of limited company is to mobilize the resources of a large number of people for a project, which they would not be able to afford independently and then, get it managed by experts. Accounting Requirements Sole Proprietorship

In case of sole proprietor, owner is the sole owner of the business. So, there is no restriction on him for drawing money for his personal use.

Limited Companies There are two types of companies:

• Public Limited Companies • Private Limited Companies

Public Limited Companies In public limited companies, there is no restriction on number of persons to be its members. There is one restriction. i.e., there should be a minimum of three members to form a public limited company. Private Limited Companies Two to fifty persons can form a private limited company. Minimum two members are elected to form a board of directors. This board is given the responsibility to run day to day business of the company. Share Capital Capital of the company is divided into small units / denominations. These units / denominations are called shares and the capital is called share capital. Owners purchase these shares and are, therefore, called shareholders. As, there are so many shareholders in a company, profit is distributed among the members/shareholders of the company on the basis of number of shares held by each shareholder. The profit distributed among shareholders is called DIVIDEND.
