FREE Pre-Submission
Review
with each
and every Package

Oversights, errors and typos can be costly and time-consuming. To help prevent mistakes, our experienced company formation team conduct a thorough review of all orders before submitting them to Companies House.

Why use Quality Company Formations to form your company?

We are an experienced online company formation agency based in Covent Garden, London. We are very proud of our incredible 9.5/10 client review rating, which demonstrates our dedication and the high quality of customer service you can expect from the Quality Company Formations team.

Authorised by Companies House

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.

Free pre-submission review

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 formation applications. Once you have completed your online application form, one of our hawk-eyed formation agents will conduct a thorough review, before submitting it to Companies House. This helps to avoid delays and costly amendments at a later date.

Ongoing support and guidance

Our support doesn’t stop when your new company is registered. Quality Company Formations is here to provide unlimited help and guidance for the lifetime of your company. In addition to the invaluable information available from our online Resource Centre and Blog, our team of dedicated experts is here 08:30-17:30 Monday to Friday to answer any of your questions, either online, via email or by telephone. You will also have access to our exclusive online Client Portal, which allows you to view and update your company details free of charge at any time. You can even change your company name, add new directors, and submit confirmation statements to Companies House.

Additional professional services

In addition to providing online company formation, usually within 3 to 6 working hours (however, this timescale is subject to Companies House workload and it may take longer), we also offer a selection of professional services to support your business adventure, 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.

How long does it take to form a limited company in the UK?

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.

How will I know when my company has been formed?

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.

What company type or structure should I choose?

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.

Florist Workspace. Setting up your new business

If I change my mind, can I close down my company cheaply and easily?

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.

How do I open a business bank account?

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.

Why do you offer different address services, and what purpose do they serve?

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.
