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 company in the UK?

We will register your new company within 3 to 6 hours (typically)of submitting your online application at our Website. However, this turnaround time is also dependent on how busy the companies house is on that day. If you need it urgently, we also offer a guaranteed same-day formation service (order should be submitted before 15:00 GMT on any business day). You will receive all the official paperwork in your email as soon as your company is registered at the Companies House.

What information should I provide to form my new company?

First you need to choose a unique company name. In addition, you will have to provide full name, residential address, date of birth, nationality, business occupation, telephone number, town of birth and eye colour for each director/shareholder to form a UK limited company.

What are the documents required to register a UK limited company?

You don’t need any document in hand to register a new UK limited company. Once the registration process is completed, to comply with AML (anti-money laundering) regulations and KYC (know your customer), we ask you send us your identification and address proof within 30 days of company registration.

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

Yes. We can help you get a business bank account with Barclays or Lloyds with a fast-tracked application process. Please note this offer is applicable only for UK residents. 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, we can help you get a business bank account even if you have a bad/poor credit rating. Some of our banking partners offer business bank account for people with poor credit rating.

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

Yes, you can use your home address. However, your home address will be publicly available for anyone to view. That’s why most companies prefer to use our registered office service. This service allows you to hide your home address from internet, marketing agencies and general public besides giving you a prestigious London corporate address.

Are shareholders required for my ltd company?

A limited company (limited by shares) must have at least one shareholder. There’s no limit on the maximum number of share-holders. If you are the only shareholder, you’ll own 100% of the company. The price of an individual share can be any value. 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 such legal requirement for you to be a UK resident or a citizen to register your UK company. Using our website, you can complete your UK company registration 100% online, from anywhere in the world.

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 to choose my new company name?

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

Is company secretary a mandatory requirement?

No. It is not 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.

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

Yes, we can hand hold you and help you step by step during the registration process. Just contact our live chat support and we will be happy to guide you through.

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?

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 from the public record. Our directors address service allows the directors to hide their home address from internet, marketing agencies and the general public.

Do I need to sign any document?

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

Can you send the printed documents to my International Address?

Yes, as soon as your company is registered we will print and post you the official copies of 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 most common high street banks refuse business bank accounts for companies with overseas resident directors, we have negotiated special arrangements with a few banking partners to open your business bank account. We offer two type of business accounts namely virtual bank account, and high street bank account. Depending upon your country of residence, requirements, and your budget, we will advise the right banking option for you.

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

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

Yes, you can do everything yourself. You don’t need an expensive solicitor or accountant to register your company. Our online company registration process is very simple and straightforward. You can also get free step by step live help from our customer support team.
