Post incorporation

When and how will I receive my company documents?

As soon as Companies House advises us that it has registered your company, we will send you an email with PDF copies of your incorporation documents. (Note: If you order paper copies of these documents, or if they are included with your registration package, we will post these out to you by royal mail)

Where should I keep my company documents?

You could keep them electronically. Hard copies shall be maintained by the directors.

Do I need to inform Companies House of any changes made?

Yes, and rules do apply. For example, the appointment of a director must be notified to Companies House within 14 days of appointment. You can use our services, third party services, or deal directly with Companies House.

How much will it cost to change company details?

Changes can be made by using our online admin portal. Most changes or filings do not incur a charge from Companies House. However, there is Companies House filing fee for Confirmation Statements and change of name. When you order these services from us, we will take care of everything and ensure compliance.

How do I close (dissolve) my company?

Provided there are no creditors, you can file a DS01 form either using our services, third party services, or directly with Companies House.

Can the Company trade under a different name?

Yes, provided legal name is displayed as required by law.

Can I transfer shares or issue more shares?

Shares can be transferred at any time after company formation, and you may also increase your company's share capital by issuing more shares. Both these actions require approval of the director. There is no restriction to the total quantity of shares a company can issue, unless the articles of association contain a provision of authorised share capital.

Where do I have to display my company name?

If your company is trading you must also display the legal name, company number and the address where the company is registered (e.g. England) in all stationery including websites.

Do I need a business bank account?

Legally, you do not need to have a business bank account. However, in practice you should use one for the purposes of legal accounting, setting aside company money (e.g. corporation tax) and trade with others.

Can I change my registered office address?

Yes, either using our services, third party services, or directly with Companies House.

Can I make changes to my company after incorporation?

Yes, either using our services, third party services, or directly with Companies House.

Initially, I was very hesitant to register my new limited company from online website. I chose Mint because of their highly professional website. I am glad I did as the staff were very polite, professional and exceptionally helpful. They managed to register my company same day and sent me all the paperwork saving me a lot of time.

Jessica Bingham

I live in Holland. I went to the Companies House website and downloaded the application. There was so much to fill and many questions. I was worried about making mistakes. So, I searched Google and found Mint who does everything online. They have a very easy to use Website with clear instructions. I completed my application in the night and the next my new company was formed. Simple and quick.

Lucas Jansen

I was thinking of using a lawyer or an accountant to form my new UK company. Then I found Mint website online and spoke to Kate. It immediately became clear that I need not waste my money with a lawyer. I made an online application and received all my official paperwork in an email the following day.

James Tomblin

I was not sure how to deal with company formation as this is my first experience in starting my own business. A friend of mine recommended Mint and he was right. They made it really simple for me and answered all my questions with patience and help me set it up. I would recommend Mint to anyone who is starting a new business.
