It is a legal structure that offers limited liability to its shareholders, meaning that they are only liable for the amount of money they have invested in the company.

What information is required when registering a new company?

When incorporating a new company there is some key information required in order to complete the application. It's relatively straightforward, personal details are required such as full name, contact information and address details for the company itself. A new limited company formation application also requires a registered office address for the company, a director and a shareholder holding at least one share. If you wish to keep your details private you can use our professional address services which are included with some packages. This is a good way to keep your business or personal director’s address private.

Do I need to supply any documents for a UK limited company?

When you register a company with Your Company Formations we aim to keep the process as simple as possible. No documentation is required for the company application form and in most instances it can be completed in approximately 5-10 minutes. Once the company formation application form is submitted an invitation from Credas (UK Government Approved Third Party Partner) that will ask you to upload or take a photo of your identity documents online through a secure portal.

How do I select and register a company name?

For a client who is registering a new limited company, you will first need to ensure that the name you want is available. You can use our company name search facility on our website to check this prior to proceeding. For a private limited company the name will also need to end with “Limited” or “Ltd”, or, if you are registering a company in Wales then the company will need to end with (“Cyfyngedig” or “Cyf”).

What company formation documents are provided with my new company?

Once we incorporate your company at Companies House and your company has been approved, your company registration process has been completed. Part of the completion process will include electronic copies of your company incorporation certificate with your unique company number, share certificates (Ltd Companies) and memorandum and articles of association sent to you instantly via email. If you also select a package or product that contains printed documents these will be sent to you quickly within a day or two.

Are the director's address details published on public records?

When you register a new limited company online, you will be asked to provide correspondence address details for all directors. You can choose to publish your address or for the majority of our clients, they choose to have a layer of privacy through the use of our director's privacy address. This enables you to keep your address on public record and helps to prevent companies, agencies and the general public from obtaining your contact information.

Am I required to appoint a company director as part of the formation process?

All UK Ltd companies are legally required to appoint at least one director who is over the age of 16. A company director has many legal responsibilities and reporting duties, they are legally responsible for the running of the company. Duties include and are not limited to, filing of accounts, filing documents at Companies House and keeping the company in good standing. A director can actually be another company, however at least one of the directors must be a person as opposed to a “legal entity”.

Why use a company formation agent?

Setting up a company is a complex, time-consuming process that requires filing different forms of paperwork in compliance with regulatory requirements. However, working with company incorporation agents saves you the time and hassle of handling the process yourself.

Your Company Formations provides adequate guidance on the suitable corporation structure for your business idea and handles and files the paperwork. And because of our longstanding relationship with Companies House and other service providers, you benefit from negotiated incorporation rates and cashback for opening your business account with our selected partners.

What happens after your company is registered?

Once your application is completed, we will set up your company within 3-6 working hours, depending on companies house workload on the day. You will receive a notification telling you that your application has been approved. Digital copies of your company documents in PDF format will be sent to your email address. Once this is completed, you can immediately begin trading with your company.

How many shares does a company need?

A Limited Company requires at least one share per shareholder, with a minimum of one shareholder. There is no limit to the number of shares held by a shareholder.

Are there any hidden costs?

There are no hidden costs for any of our packages. We advertise a fair, transparent cost for our services, so no unexpected fees are added at the end of the checkout process. We include the Companies House charge of £13.00 with all our formation packages. This fee is charged on all new formations and is included in the price you see.
