Frequently asked questions
Why should I choose this package?
If you are working on a tight budget and want to form a company as inexpensively as possible - this may be the package for you. This package provides a UK private company limited by shares, with a set of digital company company documents delivered by email.
If I purchase the Basic Package can I upgrade at a later date?
Yes you can purchase additional services later; however, our services are discounted within our packages and purchasing a more expensive package is a cheaper way of obtaining additional services.
What if I only want to reserve a company name?
You cannot reserve a company name without registering a limited company. You may wish to choose the Basic Package as the least expensive way of forming a company and securing your company name; however, if you do not want your residential address displayed on the pubic record, we would recommed the Privacy Package.
What is the free Pre-Submission Review?
We provide a free check of your company application before it is sent to Companies House - correcting any omissions and errors.
This review considerably reduces the chances of the company being rejected by Companies House, and also ensures company documents are properly presented, without capitalisation or grammatical problems.
How do I open the business bank account?
As soon as your company is formed, you will receive an email with instructions on how to open your account. Our banking partners, such as Barclays, Mettle, and TSB will ask you to complete a short application form.
You will then receive your account number and sort code within minutes; however, some banks may take up to 5 days. If your bank account includes a business debit card, you should receive this within 3 to 5 days of opening your account.
What information do I need provide to form a company?
Forming a limited company is a simple online process; however, before starting the process you will need the following information to hand: the company name, the registered office address, director details, shareholder details (can be the same person as the director), and how many shares you want to issue.
For further reading, please have a look at our resource page: Information Required to Register a Company, which provides a useful company formation checklist.
Do I need to supply ID?
All company formation agents have a legal obligation to check Proof of ID and Address; however, most customers do not need to do anything, as we conduct electronic checks using the information supplied in the online company application.
Where we are unable to verify ID via our electronic checks, we will supply an easy to use App which will allow the supply of certified proof ID and Address using a smartphone. This App will usually be supplied free of charge; however, in some instances where checks are expensive, we may have to apply a small charge of £5.00 plus VAT.
How do I get my free domain name?
Immediately upon incorporation of your new limited company, we will send you an email which will include your digital company documents and also a voucher code and instructions on how to redeem and set up your free domain name from the 'names.co.uk' website.
