Starter Pack £8.99

Summary

Our Starter Packs are only £8.99 and they are of exceptionally good value. No other provider offers the same level of support and efficiency for this price.

This small fee covers the Companies House charge for incorporation, and your new company will be formed in 1 working day (depending on the Companies House internal systems).

Please Note: Due to the discounted price that this package is offered at, it is only available to a single client once.

Users, Requirements and Suitability

Our Starter Pack is suitable for a wide variety of people – contractors, single shareholders, directors, companies, anyone who wishes to establish a dormant company and individuals who wish to register and secure a company name. Your company should be incorporated and able to trade within 1 working day. As soon as Companies House has approved the application, we will email you a copy of the official certificate of incorporation, share certificates and memorandum along with articles of association (the constitution of the company). Contractors should note that an emailed certificate of incorporation normally meets the requirements of an employment agency dealing with the PAYE issue.

You can also take advantage of our free bank referral. This is the first stage of an application to one of our bank affiliates. If your application is successful, then you will have everything you need as a start-up business owner or contractor.

Upgrade Option

If you have more than 1 shareholder, you may want to issue share certificates. If this is the case, you should consider upgrading your application.Printed.

It is important to note that every company needs an official address. You can use your home address for this purpose, but if you are renting your office, you may need to check with your landlord. By registering your home address as your office, you will be publicly listing it as your company’s address via the Companies House website. The security risks are obvious and many of our clients wish to safeguard their privacy. So we offer a Registered Office Service to help ensure confidentiality and discretion. This being the case, you may wish to upgrade your choice to the privacy pack, which also provides printed documentation.

Pricing and Value for Money

At £8.99, we truly believe that we offer one of the lowest prices for company formation in the UK market. This pack provides everything a company needs to start trading, except an official address.

Major banks in UK do not need hard copies of the certificate of incorporation or any other company documents if there is only 1 shareholder/director. Instead, these banks verify your information with Companies House, and if there are no problems, they register and open a bank account for your company.

We provide all our clients with a free administration portal, which you can use to easily and efficiently update your statutory records at Companies House. We also offer you free support for the portal for the entire lifetime of the company.

FAQs

How long does it take to form a company?

Just like most formation agents, we use a third-party software system that links our orders directly to Companies House. Once your order is placed, it is automatically forwarded to Companies House. The time taken is entirely dependent on Companies House’s workload. Companies House will normally complete your application within 1 working day. In unusual circumstances, Companies House systems can be interrupted and take more than a day to resolve, but this is very rare.

Do I need to specify what my business is or the objects of the company?

There is no requirement to specify the objects of your company or the nature of your trade in the articles of association (constitution) of the company. However, you will be asked to provide a SIC (Standard Industrial Classification) code when you make your application. A drop-down list of all the available classifications is available at the appropriate juncture in the application. You only need to select one code, and it should be the code that is the most accurate. It is very rare to find an exact SIC match, so use a general SIC match if that is all that is available.

What are the charges?

We offer a discount to first time buyers who wish only to buy a basic limited company formation. The basic price is always published and clearly stated but will vary from time to time. There are never any hidden charges. There is a selection of more expensive packages, and there are extra services you can buy. We charge for all the extras, but they are entirely optional.

How many people do I need to form a company?

You need a shareholder and a director. The shareholder and the director can be the same person, so a company can be formed with just 1 person. Shareholders are the owners of the company while the directors are the people responsible for managing a company. The director must be at least 16 years of age.

What documents are required to create a company?

You do not need any documents to form a company, and the entire process is online. Our systems generate and submit forms IN01 and the Memorandum and articles of association on your behalf when you complete your order.

What company name can I use?

Subject to specific rules, you can use any company name, provided it does not already exist or resembles another company name on the Companies House Register. Our name search box is linked to Companies House and will advise you if your proposed name is available.
