Business entities you can open in Nigeria

1) Private Limited Company (Ltd)

A private limited company is a legal entity in its own right, separate from those who own it, the shareholders. The limited liability and simplicity of running the private limited company make it the most common registered business in Nigeria.

2) Public Limited Company

A public limited company differs from the private version in that it is able to sell its shares to the public and may be quoted on the stock exchange. A public company must have at least 500,000 authorized share capital and the subscribers must take up at least twenty-five percent of the authorized share capital.

3) Sole Trader

This is the simplest form of enterprise, as it does not require registration, though the sole trader may wish to register the business name to exclude other businesses from trading by the same name. It is the type of business in which the owner of the enterprise is exposed to the greatest personal risk because the sole trader is personally responsible for all aspects of the business and has unlimited liability to all debts and legal actions.
