Gavin Mannion

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.
