Form A Limited company
Incorporating as a private limited company is by far the most popular option for a small to medium sized business looking to set up operations in the United Kingdom. Private limited companies offer all the benefits of operating as a sole trader without any of the personal liability issues. Some find the paperwork and annual auditing and tax filing responsibilities of private limited company a source of concern - this is where we can help. Our company formation experts Fast Formation will work with you on a one-on-one basis to answer all your questions and help alleviate any worries you might have of registering a private limited company in the UK.
While it is true that private limited companies have more onerous accounting and auditing standards than your average sole tradership, the comprehensive range of accounting, tax and legal services offered by our team at Fast Formation will help you meet and exceed all obligations to HM Revenue & Customs and any other government body. Fast Formation will work on your behalf and represent your business's interests with the Companies House, the official registrar for limited company formation in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Thanks to our fully electronic registration process setting up a limited company in the UK has never been easier. We provide all the necessary forms and our team are on hand to work with you through every step of the way of setting up a UK limited company.
|Private limited companies in the UK are subject to the following requirements and responsibilities: 1. Company Officers: At one time, all private limited companies registered in the UK had to have a formally appointed company Director and a company secretary. The Companies Act of 2006 has simplified this requirement, eliminating the need for a company secretary from April 2008 onwards. The same act also made it legal to withhold the company director's residential address, instead allowing only the company's registered office address to be disclosed. These laws are a series of proactive business-friendly steps taken by the government to make starting a company in the UK easier and more secure than ever.|
2. Maintaining a Registered Office: All private limited companies incorporated in the UK must have an officially registered office. This does not have to be the company's usual business address and can even be the address of the company's lawyers of accountants. This is the address used for all correspondence from government departments like the HM Revenue & Customs and the Companies House. Any changes in this address must be notified to the Companies House immediately. If you need a registered office address, Fast Formation can provide this to your company for a competitive annual fee. 3. Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association are two documents that you need to have ready before registering a company in the UK. The Memorandum of Association states the company name. The Articles of Association include the objects of the company and lays down the regulations governing the relationships between the shareholders and directors of the company; it essentially codifies the company's internal affairs. When registering with Fast formation you do not need to worry about this because our company formation service will include these two documents. Our company formation specialists at Fast Formation will help you each of the above steps, from arranging a registered office in the UK, to drafting the Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association. Our accountants can also help you with all accounting and annual tax reporting responsibilities. We can even help register your company name as well as register the company trademark. Let Fast Formation help you manage your business better and more efficiently at every operational level. 4. Annual Returns Requirement: All private limited companies must file yearly corporate tax returns with HM Revenue & Customs. Additionally, they must also file an annual return and annual accounts with Companies House which provides a general overview on the company's activities in that particular year.
