We can register your limited company using your own memorandum and articles of association. All you need is to complete one of our application order, and then e-mail us your own version of the memorandum and articles of association that you want to incorporate your limited company with.

Easy private companies registration in 5 steps

  • Step 1: Pick up your company registration package

Choose the Package

There's an offer for everybody.

With four standard limited company registration packages for UK residents and the same amount for non-UK based clients, we have a private company registration package for every occasion. Check the table for a full comparison of our incorporation packages and to see which one best serves your needs.

This table covers formation of companies limited by shares, but if you want to register a limited liability partnership or form a company limited by guarantees, then, we can assist with our business types registrations too.

  • Step 2: Name of your company

Choose the Name

Can you name your company without of preliminary check?

You should use our company's name-checking facility prior you provide a business name in our online company registration application. If desired name is already in use by another company or a partnership, you must provide an alternative name, you can try and use additional words to distinguish the name, but it’s not always allowed by the Companies House.

You should bear in mind that there are several restricted words, such as "Bank", "Insurance", etc., which require an approval from the relevant government body before you can use it for an incorporation. There are also several sensitive words and expressions, which would require additional supporting information to be provided at the time of your limited company's formation.

  • Step 3: Address service

Registered Address

Your company legal address (registered address) services.

To register a limited company, you need to provide us a valid address with the postcode which you want to use as your legal address. There are certain number of customers who do not wish or cannot use their private addresses as the business location. It may be that they want to protect their privacy, or just look more professional.

Coddan Formations Agent offers the chance to use a selection of business address across the UK, which can be used for the purpose of business address, and our domicile address will be shown for the official records. Our addresses can be used as directors and shareholders service address as well. If you need, we can also provide a SAIL address for your limited company formation.

  • Step 4: Your appointee(s).

Appoint Your Officers

You need to provide us details of your appointees.

To register a limited company you need to appoint as a minimum of one director, who must be the private individual, and at least one shareholder, who can be you, our one of your companies. In the case if you are not familiar with the company legal liabilities and responsibilities, you should appoint a company secretary. Be aware, though, that the Companies Act 2006 states that the Companies Registrar must be informed of the directors' residential address. A residential address can be used as a service address and many directors do just that.

If you do not use your residential address, Companies House requires the alternative service address. This is the address that features on the public record, so many clients prefer to take up our legal business address service and use, for instance, Baker Street, London, as the official base for their business.

  • Step 5: Check out

Check Out

Upon completing our registration form, you need to pay for the order. Once you submit the application form, a pro-forma invoice will be emailed to you. Our invoice includes all required details for you to make a payment.

You have different options to pay for the private company formation: by credit or debit card, cash, postal order, or by cheque. You can arrange a bank transfer to our account; we also accept the payments via Money Gram and Western Union. If you prefer, you can also pay us via the PayPal.
