Gibraltar Company FormationGibraltar Limited Company (Ltd)

A Limited Company (Ltd) in Gibraltar is similar to a UK Ltd or a GmbH in Germany, in that it is a legal entity which is separate and distinct from the individuals who run it. For sole traders or individuals in partnerships, their personal assets are at risk in the case of a claim against the organisation but shareholders in a Limited company are liable to lose only the value of the share capital to which they subscribe.
