The Beatles Ltd is formed

With the success of The Beatles looking assured, and expectations for better things as their fame grew across the United Kingdom, Brian Epstein formed The Beatles Limited to handle their legal and business affairs.

Although much of their business continued to be handled by NEMS Enterprises, the new company was a partnership which allowed each of The Beatles to have a specified stake in their success, and to ensure lower rates of corporate tax.

The Beatles Ltd was replaced in April 1967 with the formation of The Beatles & Co, which later became Apple Corps.
