Incorporation of a company

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, and about which type of company is right for you. If it is then we can undertake the incorporation of your company and even manage all the secretarial functions for you, though our subsidiary company.

For the incorporation of 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.

Other information

Companies no longer need to have a company secretary, so the sole director can fill both these functions.Incorporation of your business

As part of the fixed price of £150 + VAT for 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 now 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 offer Registered Office services in England or Wales through our office facilities there.

Any requests to host Scottish Limited partnerships (with non resident members) which we have not formed are being refused.

If you are to be appointed as a director, you may want to look at this HMRC webcast about your responsibilities and our factsheet on the next practical steps that will happen.

Company information on incorporation

As you might know, the information held at Companies House can be less than clear to the layman.  We can help with much needed interpretation.

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

Our services are always reasonably priced, and we are turning around the incorporation data information in hours – not days.
