A limited company is an organisation that is required to be set up in order to run a business. A limited company can be opened by anyone, so long as they are over sixteen years of age. The person setting the company up is not required to be a UK national, they can be from any country.
If you’re looking to register a limited company we can offer some advice on the process, as well as the availability of our bespoke services that remove any of the hassle you might face as we personally deal with every requirement each step on the way to give you guaranteed peace of mind and an efficient, reliable service.
Directors are responsible for the running of a limited company. Any limited company MUST HAVE a director. Every limited company also has a select group of ‘members’ – these being the people or organisations who own shares in the company. Directors often own shares, and in the case of many smaller companies, the director may well be the sole shareholder. The director has to be an actual person, whereas another business can be a shareholder as well as the company director or other people. Company directors aren’t personally responsible for debts the business can’t pay if it goes wrong, as long as they haven’t broken any laws. The finances of the limited company are separate from the personal finances of the individual or individuals that own and run the limited company.
If you’re looking to register a limited company and want us to take care of everything, then all of the registration processes is completed online in the space of 24 hours by one of our dedicated and qualified staff. Unlike many other formation companies, we do all our document submission service manually so as to avoid any mistakes. We normally set a number of shares to 100, if you require more than this we can easily set up a larger amount.
For company registration, you will need a company registration address which we will provide as part of our service. Your company must have at least one director and one shareholder, though as mentioned it can be same person if so required.
To complete the registration, you will need to provide us with your preferred company name, which cannot be the same as that of any existing registered company, along with the name of the director and shareholder and their requisite dates of birth, nationalities and addresses. Copies of passports and proof of addresses will be required to validate these details – all of which can be emailed to our office.
After company formation you will receive the following documents by email: Certificate of Incorporation, Memorandum, Article, First Minute and a Shares Certificate. If you require hard copy documentation of these items we can print and send these out by post for an additional £14, including the postage fee.
It is possible to have certain official UK documents ‘legalised’ by asking the Legalisation Office to confirm that the signature, stamp or seal is from a UK public official. The Legalisation Office will check these, and if genuine, they’ll legalise the document by attaching a stamped official apostille to it. If you need documents to be apostilled we can organize this as well and send you asset of apostilled documents, by post, to any country.
