What is a Private Company Limited by Guarantee?

A 'private company limited by guarantee' is a company that does not issue shares and therefore has no share capital.

Members of a private company limited by guarantee are known as 'guarantors' not shareholders. Their liability is valued up to the amount they are willing to contribute to the assets.
