All types of business organisations have to be registered in one way or another. Licensing may also be required. Unincorporated business organisations, namely sole proprietorships and partnerships, expose the owners to unlimited personal liability. The same is true of general partners in a limited partnership. Incorporated business organisations such as companies and limited liability partnerships generally do not expose the owners to unlimited personal liability. But to balance this, the law imposes more duties and liabilities in relation to the running of these types of organisations, breach of which may result in criminal liabilities. Further, it is comparatively more complex and expensive to set up and dissolve such organisations. The best type of organisation to choose depends on the circumstances/needs and choosing the wrong type of organisation may affect the business and may affect the owner of the business.
