Pleased to announce that on 11th September the UK Branch was registered in England and Wales at Companies House as a private company limited by guarantee, with the title of the BSAP Regimental Association United Kingdom Branch.
The purpose of the company is “to operate and administer the affairs and activities of the United Kingdom Branch of the BSAP Regimental Association in accordance with the constitution of the BSAP Regimental Association and the by-laws of the United Kingdom Branch made there under and as amended from time to time.”
A Company limited by Guarantee means a company incorporated not for profit and whose directors act as guarantors.
The benefit is that the Branch is now able to own property, including intellectual property, in its own name as well as being able to enter into contracts. More importantly the liability of the company is limited to the amount pledged by the guarantee members, £1.
Members will notice no difference to the way the Branch is managed with the committee members becoming directors of the company.
The present guarantee members and directors are:
Steve Acornley, Paul Brewster, Micheal Coleman, Peter Phillips, Tony Granger, James Harris, David Pillans, Alan Toms
