Now that you have decided to form an unlimited proprietary company with a share capital, this must be shown in the name ending of the company. However, there are 3 ways (i.e. formats) this can be shown in the name ending. These 3 ways are as shown.

There is no legal difference between each of these 3 formats. It is simply a matter of presentation - i.e. how you would like the company's name to be presented on its Certificate of Registration. Further, even after the format has been chosen, the company still has the flexibility to use the accepted abbreviations, as shown, with or without full stops and vice versa - sections 149(1) and 149(2) of the Corporations Act 2001.   Copyright © 2000
