Company Formation Service

There are many reasons why businesses choose to incorporate and trade as a limited company, rather than as a sole trader or a partnership for example. Paying less tax, gaining limited liability status and increasing your businesses credibility are the main three reasons.

When you set up a new business as a limited company, or convert an existing business into one, the formation of the actual company is only the first step. You also need to register it with HMRC for business taxes e.g. Corporation Tax, VAT and PAYE.

You also need to consider protecting the identity of the new company and its director. There are simple, but effective, free anti-fraud measures that you should elect to use at Companies House. We have never seen this set up as standard by a company formation agent.

Even for ‘one-person’ companies there can be sound business reasons to voluntarily set up and run a payroll scheme and register for VAT. These are the sort of matters that all new companies should be considering. Unfortunately, a company formation agency will not consider, yet alone offer, these services.

Our formation package covers:

  • Registering the company for VAT and PAYE
  • Advice on the optimum share structure of your company
  • Telephone support throughout the process

There are of course low cost formation agents on the Internet but they rarely include everything you need, such as VAT and PAYE registration, each of which can cost as much as £75 plus VAT from other accountants. Plus, low cost online formations often don’t provide any telephone support, so if you do get stuck who is going to help you?  We consider these matters as standard when forming a new company and provide you with the peace of mind you need when creating a company.

Company Secretarial Service

Our company secretarial service covers everything your company needs in order to remain compliant with increasing regulatory requirements.  The following services can be undertaken:

  • Production of all statutory returns
  • Maintain statutory registers
  • Preparation and filing of all forms with Companies House.

We can also offer a registered office service for your business for limited companies within the United Kingdom.

Where possible we will file Companies House documents by e-filing. This enables filing to be made more efficiently and more securely.
