Company disambiguation talk pageEdit


I have changed the redirect for "Company" back to "Company (law)" and put a link to the disambiguation page at the top of "Company (law)". That is how it was previously and I think that is the sensible approach. Wikipedia doesn't keep stats, but it seems to me highly likely that 99% of the hits for company will be for the legal entity as opposed to the military term or a number of obscure films or books. Happy to hear other points of view, but that seems to me to be the most sensible approach. I appreciate that Americans and Canadians refer to companies as corporations, but I still think that if you just aggregate the Brits, the Ozzies, the Kiwis and other Commonwealth countries, the business entity is going to be by far the bulk of the hits as opposed to the other options on the disambiguation page.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Legis (talkcontribs) 16 June 2006

3 1/2 years late to the discussion but, yep.........(Paleocon44 (talk) 00:25, 19 December 2009 (UTC))
Yep. In fact there is a really easy way to track number of hits now on Wikipedia. See [1]. --RossF18 (talk) 00:45, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Wrong HyperlinkEdit

The hyperlink for "business organization" is redirecting to "Companies (law)". —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:48, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

about company formationEdit

dear sir, on a project i want to know more about the formation of company —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:56, 29 October 2008 (UTC)


I think Business and Company should be merged. A company is a business organization; business as defined in Business (ostensibly) means the same thing. If there is a difference, that difference should be clearly pointed out. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:17, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Business is wider than Company. See the explanation in the lead para of Company. I have now clarified in the lead para of Business. --Mhockey (talk) 11:39, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

First SentenceEdit

A company is an association or collection of individuals people or "warm-bodies" or else contrived "legal persons" (or a mixture of both).

Grammar: It seems pretty obvious there should be a comma after the word "individuals" right? TimBurleson (talk) 14:38, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
