Converting a company from one type to another
A company can be converted from one type to another by re-registration within the terms of the Act. There are procedures for re-registration from private to public and vice versa and from private limited by shares to unlimited and vice versa. There is no provision for a company limited by shares to be re-registered as one limited by guarantee or for the reverse process and there are restrictions on a company which has previously changed from limited to unlimited or vice versa changing back again. On re-registration the company keeps its original company number and remains the same corporate identity. Re-registration does not affect any existing rights or liabilities of the company.
