Review The Customers Voice

Exceptional customer service

A trustworthy company formation business. Easy to navigate website. Options clearly marked. And perhaps most importantly, when something goes wrong as in my case and purely my mistake as I had written a director's initials in short form, they at once helped me to sort out matters on my behalf at Companies House. Highly recommend, 10 out of 10.

Frequently asked questions

How long will it take to register a company in the UK?

We will normally register your new company within three to six hours of you submitting your online application via our website. However, registering a company name within this timeframe does depend on how busy Companies House is on that day. For those who need to register a limited company urgently, we offer a guaranteed same-day formation service (orders should be submitted before 15:00 GMT on any business day). You will receive all the official paperwork in your email inbox as soon as your company is registered at Companies House.

What information should I provide to form my new company?

When setting up and registering a new business, you need to choose a unique company name. You will also need to provide the full name, residential address, date of birth, nationality, business occupation, telephone number, town of birth and eye colour of each director/shareholder to form and register a UK limited company.

What documents are required to register a UK limited company?

Registering a business and registering your company name does not require an endless amount of paperwork. You don’t even need specific documents to hand for us to register your UK limited company. Once you register your company name and the registration process is complete, we will ask you to send your identification and proof of address within 30 days to comply with AML (Anti-Money Laundering) and KYC (Know Your Customer) regulations.

Can you help me get a business bank account with Barclays or Lloyds?

Yes! Once you register a company name, we can help you set up a business bank account with Barclays or Lloyds via a fast-tracked application process. Please note that this offer is available for UK residents only. We have other business banking options for non-UK residents.

I have a bad/poor credit rating. Can I still get a business bank account?

Yes. When it comes to starting a business, we can help you get a business bank account even if you have a bad or poor credit rating. Some of our banking partners offer business bank accounts for people with poor credit ratings.

Can I use my home address as the registered address for my new company?

Yes. You can use your home address. However, it’s important to note that your home address will be publicly available for anyone to view. That’s why most of our customers prefer to register a company name using our “registered office” service. This allows you to hide your home address from the internet, marketing agencies and the general public, and also gives you a prestigious London corporate address.

Are shareholders required for my LTD company?

Once you register a limited company (limited by shares), you must have at least one shareholder. There’s no limit on the maximum number of shareholders you can have. If you are the only shareholder, you’ll own 100% of the company. The price of an individual share can be any value, and you can choose a low share value — for example, £1 per share.

Can a non-UK citizen register a UK company?

Yes. You can register a UK limited company as a non-UK citizen. There is no legal requirement for you to be a UK resident or citizen to register your UK company. Using our service, you can register a company name and complete your UK company registration 100% online from anywhere in the world.

Do I need to sign any documents?

No. You don’t have to sign any documents to register a company name in the UK. Our company registration online process takes care of everything — in super quick time.

Is a company secretary a mandatory requirement?

No. This is no longer a mandatory requirement. You are not legally required to appoint a company secretary for a private limited company, but some companies choose to appoint one after they register a limited company.

I am starting a limited company as a first timer. Can you help me step by step?

Yes. We can hold your hand throughout the entire process and help you register your business step by step. Contact our live chat support anytime and we will be happy to guide you through the entire process, from when you first register a company name through to completion.

Do I need to register my company for VAT?

Not unless your company’s annual turnover exceeds (or is expected to exceed) the VAT threshold of £85,000. However, for some businesses, it may be beneficial to register for VAT even if your annual turnover is less than the threshold.

What documents will I get as proof of my new company incorporation?

As soon as Companies House approves your online company registration application, you will receive electronic copies of your certificate of incorporation with your unique company number, memorandum and articles of association, and share certificates for all shareholders. If applicable, printed copies of these documents will be posted to you within 24 hours.

How do I choose and register a company name?

If you are registering a new private limited company, you must choose a unique name for your business. In order to register a company name, you must make sure the name ends with either “Limited” or “Ltd”, or the Welsh equivalents (“Cyfyngedig” or “Cyf”. Your company name cannot be the same (or similar) to another registered company’s name.

Do I need to appoint a director for my new company?

Yes. You must appoint a director for your new company. Your UK limited company must have at least one director over the age of 16. Directors are legally responsible for running the company, filing accounts and submitting official paperwork. Another company can also be a director, but at least one of your directors must be a person.

As a director, do I have to publish my home address to the public record?

Once you register a limited company, all directors must submit their residential address and a service address. Both the addresses can be the same or different. By choosing a different service address, you can keep your home address confidential. Our director’s address service allows directors to hide their home address from the internet, marketing agencies and the general public.

Can you send the printed documents to my international address?

Yes. As soon as you register a company, we will print and post the official copies of your certificate of incorporation and share certificates to your international address, if you choose our international package.

What are the business banking options for non-UK residents?

Even though many high street banks refuse business bank accounts for companies with overseas resident directors, we have negotiated special arrangements with select banking partners to open your business bank account once you register a limited company. We offer two types of business accounts: a virtual bank account and a high street bank account. Depending upon your country of residence, requirements and your budget, we can advise on the right banking option for you.

Our service includes an initial consultation, introduction and help with setting up your UK bank account. We will collect your information and apply on your behalf. Please note that additional charges are applicable for this service.

How does our price compare against other companies?

Our prices are fair, competitive and, like for like, the best in the industry. The company registration packages that we have carefully put together provide fantastic value for your money. We not only offer the best prices, but we have also negotiated great deals with our partners, which offer products and services at a greatly reduced price exclusively for Mint customers.

We continually strive to improve the services we offer our customers, but one thing that we never do is deliberately entice you with a low price and shock you with extras at a later stage.

Can I register a UK company myself without the help of a solicitor (or accountant)?

Yes. You can do everything yourself. You don’t need an expensive solicitor or accountant to register a UK company. Our online company registration process is very simple and straightforward. You can also receive free step-by-step live help from our customer support team throughout the entire registration process.

How does your free business phone number work?

This service is offered by our affiliate partner, Cleartone communications, exclusively for Mint customers. You must already have a UK landline number to qualify for a free business phone number. If you don’t have a UK landline number, there are a few low-cost alternative options available with Cleartone.

This business phone number for your office can be forwarded to your mobile or landline. When the phone rings, you get an alert that it’s a business call. You can answer, reject or take a message — no office, contract or extra handsets needed! This service includes call recording and an online portal.

  • Unique company name — Simply search for your desired company name and we’ll instantly tell you if it’s available
