How to register a limited company online

by | Jan 23, 2015 | Blog, Company Formation Services, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Nowadays, it is very reasonably priced to form a limited company with the help of online support through an agent.

UK Company formation is an uncomplicated and affordable process, especially when applications are completed online though an accepted company formation agent.

While Companies House does provide its own services for online and post applications, there are other choices such as our professional company formation service.

By having the services of an online mediator, applications can be done in just 5 minutes and then sent off electronically to Companies House through a protected software filing system. Companies House include a £13 filing fee, and the majority of applications are processed and accepted in less than 3 hours.

To register a private company that is limited by shares or guarantee, you will need to submit an online application with the subsequent data:

  • Name of company
  • Registered office address
  • Directors` details
  • Shareholders` or guarantors` details
  • Memorandum and articles of association
  • Statement of capital
  • Security information to produce an exclusive online signature

You won`t have to sign anything in person, or even post any documents. The whole thing is done and delivered online. In the improbable event that your submission has any errors, you`ll be informed straight away by email, thus giving you lots of time to fix the required corrections and resend your application on that very day and at no extra charge.

After your application is approved by Companies House, you can expect a verification email including digital copies of your certificate of incorporation. Alongside this is the memorandum and articles of association and also share certificates. Where appropriate, paper copies of incorporation files will be sent to you inside 24 hours of the formation of your company.
