Changing the Class of company field to or from Limited by Guarantee

If you change the Class of company field to or from Limited by Guarantee, the following message will display:

“Changing the company class to or from ‘Limited by Guarantee’ will affect the related Capital and Members data. Continue saving?”

If you are changing the company class to Limited by Guarantee, the Capital screen will be removed because a company of this class cannot issue shares. The structure of the Members screen will also change.

If you are changing the company class from Limited by Guarantee, the Capital screen will be added so that the company can issue shares. The structure of the Members screen will also change.
