Frequently asked questions

You will be forming a private company limited by shares. What sets this package apart from our other limited by shares packages is the ability to specify multiple share classes, write your own prescribed particulars of shares, and use your own articles of association.

When you issue multiple share classes in your company, you can tailor the individual rights and privileges of shareholders. For example, you could vary the voting rights attached to shares, ascertain whether a shareholder is eligible for dividend payments, or assign special rights such as providing the power to appoint and remove directors.

As part of the Multiple Share Class Package, you can use your own articles of association. There is a step dedicated to uploading your articles of association as a document during the company formation process. Once uploaded, your bespoke articles will then accompany your new application to Companies House.

We will be able to provide you with a suitable set of bespoke articles of association through our Drafting Service (available for £90 plus VAT). If you require this service, please call our Company Secretarial Team on 0203 984 5389.

Yes absolutely. Please call our Customer Service Team on 020 3908 0044 and one of our company experts will process your company formation order with you by telephone.

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, 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.

Yes, we provide up to 8 business bank accounts for our UK customers to include in their company formation, including Barclays, NatWest, Tide, Monzo, Cashplus, ANNA, and Mettle.

We offer a WorldFirst UK business bank account referral for our non-UK resident customers, to obtain a UK bank account number and sort code quickly and easily.

WorldFirst provide international business banking with coverage worldwide, allowing you to spend in over 40 currencies and open over 10 local currency accounts.

If successful, WorldFirst will send you your UK bank account number and sort code shortly afterwards.

It will take you no more than 5 to 10 minutes to complete the online company application form on our website. Companies House will then usually take up to 24 hours to approve your new company registration. Please note this is subject to Companies House workload on the day and it can take longer.

If it is very important your company is incorporated as soon as possible, we would recommend you add the Guaranteed Same-Day Service to your order.

The registered office and service address are legally required to form a limited company or LLP, and both are displayed on the public record. The registered office is the official address of a company, and the service address is the official address of a company director, PSC, company secretary or LLP member.

We provide a Registered Office Service and a Service Address Service, as many customers prefer to keep their home address private. All official government mail is sent to these addresses and as part of our service we will forward this mail to you by scan and email free of charge.

The business address is not a required address to register a limited company. The benefit of the Business Address Service is to provide a prestigious location and enhanced corporate image for your company. The forwarding of your general business correspondence is charged at the cost of the Royal Mail postage rates plus a 15% handling fee.

A SIC code or Standard Industrial Classification code is used to categorise a company's business activity. To register a limited company or LLP you must choose at least one SIC code, although you can choose up to four. Do not worry if you do not know the SIC code relevant to your business activity, Quality Company Formations provide a simple SIC code search tool where you can choose your SIC code or codes.

As soon as your new company has been registered at Companies House, we will send you an order fulfilled email. Within this email you will receive a voucher code and instructions on how to set up your new domain using the 'names.co.uk' website.

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 carry out digital checks using the information supplied in your online company application form.

Those customers who require to provide ID can do so in a matter of minutes using their mobile phone and a simple App which we will provide. This App is supplied free of charge.

It is a simple process to close a limited company. Quality Company Formations offer a Company Dissolution Service at a cost of £89.99 + VAT. This cost includes the Companies House fee, filing the DS01 form and providing the Board Resolution to approve the dissolution of the company.

Your company is 10 times less likely to be rejected

We provide a free check of all new company registration orders for omissions and errors
- greatly reducing the chances of rejection by Companies House.

Less chance of rejection

Our checking process reduces the average rejection rate of UK company applications, from 10% to just 1%
