Owning of property, Business Law and Ethics

Owning of Property:

                      Under Act of a registered company, as a person, has power to own movable and immovable property. It can actually do so if it can afford to buy them, or receives them as a gift. But it is important to note that, legally, the company's property does not belong to the members, either individually or as a group. It belongs to the company alone. This rule has been explained by the English courts in numerous cases among which may be referred to as an example. It was also explained in A L Underwood Ltd v Bank of Liverpool (5) that a company's money is not members' money. Any member who uses the company's money to purchase personal items or discharge personal obligations will be liable to the company for conversion. This rule applies irrespective of whether the company is of a class popularly referred to as 'a one-man company'
