A corporation, often known as co., is a legal entity that stands for a group of people with a certain goal who are either natural, legal, or a combination of the two. Members of the company work together for a shared cause in order to accomplish clearly stated objectives. Companies take various forms, such as:

o Voluntary associations, which may include non-profit organizations

o Business entities, whose aim is to generate profit

o Financial entities and banks

o Programs or Educational institution


So that the company itself has limited liability as members fulfil or fail to fulfil their obligations in accordance with the publicly stated incorporation, or published policy, a company may be established as a legal entity. It may be necessary to liquidate a firm after it closed in order to discharge any outstanding debts.

Corporate groupings are the ensuing entities that develop when corporations join forces and register themselves as new businesses.

A company is a “artificial person” with a common seal, perpetual succession, and a discrete legal personality that was founded by or pursuant to law. Companies are unaffected by the death, insanity, or insolvency of a specific member, with the exception of some senior positions.

Public firms and private companies are occasionally differentiated between for legal and regulatory considerations. Public companies are businesses whose shares may be traded publicly, frequently (but not always) on a stock exchange that imposes listing requirements/Listing Rules as to the issued shares, the trading of shares, and future issue of shares to support the reputation of the exchange or specific market of an exchange. Private corporations frequently place limits on the transfer of shares and do not have publicly traded shares. Private firms may have a maximum number of shareholders in various jurisdictions.
