Task 1
Organisation is a legal body which includes various parties who work together in order to
accomplish common goals. Following are explanations and legal structure of different types
of organisation along with examples.
Public Organisation
A public organisation is a company whose capital is divided into small parts called share;
such shares are freely traded on the stock exchange and a person become the owner of a
company by purchasing its shares (Luoma-aho, 2008).According to Pichault (2007), a
public organisation can be listed or unlisted. The listed companies are able to sell their shares
on stock exchange. As compared to other organisational structures, public organisations
larger in size due to their ability of raising capital through sale of shares (Coluson-Thomas,
2012).
Legal Structure
The legal structure of a public corporation is considerably complicated than compared to
other companies since it requires complying with multiple legal requirements. For example, a
public organisation is required to continuously file disclosures regarding various aspects such
as directors holding, annual statements, IPO, promoters holding, audit report, and many
others (Ng and Lossemore, 2007). The legal structure of a public organisation is complex and
strict because it involves public money. The company is requiring notifying stock exchange
of any significant change in management or shareholding.
Registration of a public company is compulsory, and without registration a public company
cannot attain its separate entity status. At the time of registration, minimum two directors and
one secretary are necessary, and the minimum share capital must be£50,000 among which
£12,500 must be paid up capital (Von Bogdandy, Dann, and Goldmann, 2010). The company
is also requiring preparing memorandum of association and article of association which
include the necessary framework and other essential details. Following is an example of
public organisation to understand its various aspects including size, scope, objectives,
mission, vision, and stakeholders.
