Company limited by

Limited companies are more tax efficient. This allows for greater profitability.

They are also eligible for more tax-deductible expenses and allowances.

Our Guidance on the “To do list”

As accounting consultants for the Company Formation business, we would suggest you the following steps for registration of the company by yourself.


Choosing a company name

In addition to an accountant, you’ll need to choose a name for your new corporation. Choose a name that’s not already in use by another business entity. It should be something that’s exclusive and distinguishable from others in the business world. If you don’t want to hire an accountant, you can also use the internet to check available names. Using an online service to register your company is a great option – and one that’s affordable, too!

Decide Official person and Shareholders of the Company

Limited companies are the most common type of company. They have a share capital and a set of directors. Shareholders are generally limited to the value of their shares, while a company limited by a guarantee does not have a share capital and no shareholders. Depending on the type of company you have, registering it at Companies House via post can take anywhere from eight to 10 days. By contrast, applications submitted online can be processed on the same day.

Share Capital and Articles of Association

Once you’ve incorporated, you must also prepare a Statement of Capital and Articles of Association. These documents detail the structure and value of the company’s shares. Then, you’ll need to file an IN01 application form with Companies House, the registrar of companies. Then, you’ll receive a certificate confirming your incorporation. And if all goes well, your new company will receive the license to trade in the UK.
