If you choose to order your new company using one of our competitors, at the end of the ordering process you will hit the Submit button, and your new company application will be sent straight to Companies House.
If you choose Quality Company Formations...after you select the Submit button, your order will be sent to us – not Companies House. Our team of company formation experts will then quickly check your application, making sure there are no mistakes or typos. After we are satisfied the details are correct, will we send it to Companies House.
By checking applications for errors, we dramatically reduce the average rejection rate of new company applications in the UK, from 10%, to just 1%.
What’s more, if a company is rejected, we will also take care of it by liaising with Companies House, fixing the problem and re-submitting the application.
If we didn’t check our clients’ applications, in most cases the company documents would not be properly presented.
This is due to capitalisation problems and other grammatical errors being transferred to the finished company documents, and so greatly reducing credibility and professionalism.
Nothing! We review our clients' company applications, and hande the rejections free of charge.
Our aim is to deliver new companies with perfect company documents to our clients, without undue stress or delay.
Good to be able to chat to an adviser whilst filling in the application, for the more complex formations.
Great company to work with. Made everything easy to set up. Straight forward and clear.
Fantastic online service and superb phone service. I set up my first limited company with Quality Company Formations and being a first time user it was easily set out and made easy to understand...
Very good seamless service. Was not sure which company to go with as there are many of them on the .gov website. I am glad I went with these guys and girls! Excellent professional and quick service.
Quality Formations provided the appropriate level of support for me, useful advice on the phone and then efficient handling of the paperwork, for a reasonable fee.
I have used the services provided by Quality Formations and i must say they have covered all the aspects that a person seeks while opening a company and provided the most transparent and professional service.
You’ve made the decision to register a new company. Great! Before you get started with your UK company formation, you will need to gather some information in order to complete our simple online application form. Here's what you will need:
Our online company formation process is really easy. We’ve designed the form in a simple, user-friendly format to ensure that each and every customer enjoys a quick, stress-free experience when setting up a new limited company.
Oversights, errors and typos can be costly and time-consuming. To help prevent mistakes, our experienced UK company formation agents conduct a thorough review of all orders before submitting them to Companies House.
We are the UK’s specialist company formation agents, offering our a comprehensive range of 7 different company structures. We are proud of our excellent 9.5/10 customer review rating on Trustpilot, which demonstrates the dedication and high quality of service you can expect from our team.
Companies House is the government body authorised to approve all company registrations in the UK. Quality Company Formations is proud to operate as a Companies House authorised agent, abiding by strict processing guidelines to provide unrivalled company formation services to each and every one of our valued customers.
It’s all too easy to overlook a little typo or forget to check a certain box when filling out an unfamiliar form, which is why Quality Company Formations provides a free pre-submission review of all new company applications. This helps to avoid delays due to applications being rejected by Companies House.
Our support doesn’t stop when your new company is registered, as we provide unlimited help and guidance for the lifetime of your company. Our team of dedicated experts are available from 8:30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday to answer any of your questions by telephone, live chat or email. You will also have access to our online Client Portal, where you can view and update your company details free of charge at any time.
In addition to providing online company formation, we also offer a selection of professional services to support your business, including: a range of company addresses in Covent Garden, London; free business bank accounts with £50 cashback; business telephone services; share issue and transfers; company document legalisation; director appointment and resignation; company dissolution, and much more.
Once you have decided what company structure you require (see below), and chosen a package that suits your needs and budget, it will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and submit our simple online application form, where you will insert the details of your new company. We will conduct a pre-submission review of your company details - making sure there are no typos, omissions or obvious mistakes, that may cause your application to be rejected. We will then forward it to Companies House, who usually take between 3 to 6 working hours to approve a limited company or LLP, however, this timescale is subject to Companies House workload on the day and it can sometimes take longer.
As soon as Companies House incorporate your company, our system will automatically send you an order fulfilled email with a PDF copy of your company documents attached, and a note of your Companies House Authentication Code. The attached documents will include the certificate of incorporation, memorandum and articles of association and share certificate(s). Unfortunately, Companies House do not provide any updates on progress during the registration process, and so we are unable to inform clients of the estimated time of arrival of their new limited company.
The vast majority of companies formed in the UK are companies limited by shares - also known as private limited companies. They are used to conduct normal commercial business with the purpose of the owners or shareholders making a profit, while providing limited liability protection should the company hit financial problems. Alternatively, if you wish to start a non-profit organisation, perhaps for a sports club, or workers co-operative, you will require forming a company limited by guarantee. Another structure is the Limited Liability Partnerships or LLPs, used by professionals, who require limited liability, but are precluded from trading as a limited company by their professional governing body. Quality Company Formations also provide several limited company structures with specific requirements and purposes: companies with multiple share classes, charities, right to manage companies, property management and PLCs.
The short answer is yes! If you form a company and decide not to start trading, closing or striking off the company is a simple and cheap process. Quality Company Formations provide a cost effective company dissolution service. If the company has traded, it is slightly more complicated, as you will require filing up to date accounts with Companies House and HMRC, and making sure all taxes are paid, prior to closing the company.
The best way to open a business bank account for your limited company is to let us make the application for you, with one of our banking partners - Lloyds or Barclays Bank. We will take the hassle out of the application process, and within 48 hours of your company being incorporated, you will receive a phone call from your chosen bank inviting you to an account opening meeting. Your new business bank account will come with up to 18 months of free banking and £50 cashback.
We offer three address services. The registered office address and service address are legal requirements for all limited companies and LLPs. Companies House require an official correspondence address for the company (the registered office address), and an official address for company directors, shareholders and company secretaries (the service address). Both addresses are placed on the public record, and so many clients prefer to use our address and protect the privacy of their home address. The third service is the business address which is not a legal requirement, but provides a prestigious business location in Covent Garden, London.
