What Is Company

When compared to other organizations, one of the most distinguishing characteristics of a Company is that it gains the distinct character of being a legal entity in its own right. A company's existence is distinct from the existence of its members. It has the ability to own real estate, open bank accounts, borrow money, incur debt, and enter into contracts. A Company's other distinguishing feature is that it continues to operate despite the death or change of its members until it is wound up under the Act's provisions.
