We establish that a quasiconformal group is of compact type if and only if its limits set is purely conical and find that the limit set of a quasiconformal group of compact type is uniformly perfect. A key tool is the result of Bowditch-Tukia on compact-type convergence groups. These results provide crucial tools for studying the deformations of quasiconformal groups and in establishing isomorphisms between such groups and conformal groups.

Keywords: Quasiconformal groups, convergence groups, geometric finiteness, conical limit set
