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 experts will then quickly check your application, making sure there are no mistakes. After we are satisfied all is 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 fix the problem and re-submit 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 grammatical errors being transferred to the finished company documents.
We review our clients' company applications, and handle the rejections free of charge.
Our aim is to achieve customer service excellence by delivering new companies with perfectly presented documents to our customers, 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, however, before you start you will need to gather the following information to complete our simple online application form:
We’ve designed our online company formation process to be simple and user-friendly, ensuring you enjoy a quick, stress-free experience when setting up your limited company.
Errors, omissions and typos can cause your company to be rejected by Companies House.
To help prevent this, we conduct a free review of all orders.
We are proud to operate as a Companies House authorised agent, abiding by strict processing guidelines to provide you with a fully compliant company formation service.
As the UK’s specialist company formation agents, we offer an unrivalled range of 7 different company structures and 13 cost effective packages.
We are here to support you at all times. Use our free online Client Portal, to maintain your company or contact us at any time by phone, email or live chat.
We offer a selection of invaluable services, including company addresses, business bank accounts, telephone answering, and much more.
It will take about 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 order, and then forward it to Companies House, who usually take between 3 to 6 working hours to approve a limited company or LLP. Please note, 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, we will 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.
The 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 (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 Partnership or LLP, 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 (or trading address) which is not a legal requirement, but provides a prestigious business location in Covent Garden, London.
