Incorporation of companies

We are now company incorporation agents, allowing us to form a company at Companies House in just a few hours, and at a very low cost. Firstly, you need to decide if incorporation is right for you, and we can help you with that decision. If it is then we can help you create your company and even manage all the secretarial functions for you, though our subsidiary company. To form a company we need the following information from you:

  • Company name (and a possible alternative or two)
  • Registered office (this can be our office)
  • The following details of each director or Company Secretary
    • Full name
    • Full address
    • Contact phone number
    • Nationality
    • A copy of the photo page of your passport (if not already a client)
    • National Insurance Number
    • Town of birth

We have also prepared a form for companies to use to gather the information necessary for the appointment of a director.

Companies no longer require to have a company secretary, so the sole director can fill both these functions.

Form a new company, quickly and cheaply

As part of the incorporation we will also register the company for PAYE and VAT (if required), and complete the necessary forms to register the company with the Inland Revenue.

If you are not currently a client, them we will have to undertake money laundering checks. Details of what is required under the money laundering regulations are given here.

Companies which are incorporated in Scotland must have a Registered Office in Scotland.  We can also provide Registered Office services in England through our office facilities there.

If you are to be appointed as a director, you may want to look at this HMRC webcast about your reponsibilities.

Company information

As you might know, the information held at Companies House can be less than clear to the layman, and might need much interpretation.

We can access all the records at Companies House, and by using credit reference agencies we can find more information on your competitors, possible acquisition targets or just a firm you want to benchmark against.

These services are surprisingly reasonably priced, and we can turn the information around in minutes - not days.
