Unincorporated associations, Business Law and Ethics

Unincorporated Associations:

                A group of people may come together in order to pursue or  promote a common purpose or activity but without going through the various legal procedures that ultimately result  in the creation of a registered company. In such cases the association will not be a body corporate. The legal consequences of what those people do will depend on the  provisions of the Act of Parliament and the general law  governing the activities in question. If the provisions of the Act are violated the law will disregard the apparent association and, if necessary, make the individuals personally responsible for the things that they have done while using the name of the association.

The common examples of unincorporated associations are  trade unions, societies and partnerships.
