What is the meaning of seperate legal entity ?? Please tell fast tomorrow is my exam of bst

Dear student,

Separate legal entity means that the business has a separate legal identity independent of its members. The members of the company can not be held liable for the acts of the company. The company can enter into contracts on its own name, it can sell, purchase or lease property in its own name, it can sue and can be sued by others. The debtors or creditors of company are not debtors or creditors of the members.
