Company members share a common purpose and unite in order to focus their various talents and organize their collectively available skills or resources to achieve specific, declared goals. Companies take various forms such as: ⁕Voluntary associations which may be registered as a Nonprofit organization ⁕A group of soldiers ⁕Business entity with an aim of gaining a profit ⁕Financial entities and Banks A company or association of persons can be created at law as legal person so that the company is itself can accept Limited liability for civil responsibility and taxation incurred as members perform to discharge their duty within the publicly declared "birth certificate" or published policy. Because companies are legal persons, they also may associate and register themselves as companies - often known as a Corporate group. When the company closes it may need a "death certificate" to avoid further legal obligations.
