unlimited (adjective, un-lim-it-ed, \ ʌnˈlɪmɪtɪd \) liability (noun, li-a-bil-i-ty, \ ˌlaɪəˈbɪləti \) company (noun, com-pa-ny, \ ˈkʌmpəni \)
Definition: is a private enterprise that can exist in the form of either exclusive ownership or general partnership and whose owner(s) or stakeholders hold an unlimited responsibility for its debts and commitments but have the ability to evade double taxation, which is applied to limited companies. Such enterprises are free from registering their yearly accounts with the public authorities unless they are a subsidiary of a limited company and thus may represent a more desirable business structure depending on the owners’ needs.
