A private limited company (PTE. LTD.) is a Singapore Company in which the shares are held by less than 50 persons. Most privately incorporated businesses in Singapore are registered as private limited companies.

Limited liability partnerships (LLP) allows companies to operate as partnerships while enjoying the benefits of a private limited company. LLP are separate legal entities. Partners will not be held liable for any losses or debts from the business.o Sole proprietorship essentially means there are no partners in the business. This means the owner can earn all the profits but also bear higher risk if anything happens.

What is the difference between adopting the Model Constitution in force at a point in time, and adopting the Model Constitution in force from time to time?

If a company opts to adopt the prevailing Model Constitution, it will be considered as accepting any future changes to its provisions made by law, without the need for any amendment procedures. The adoption of the Model Constitution at a given time signifies that it is fixed unless the company later makes alterations to it.
