Quick company formations
The third option of the private limited company formation for the non-UK customers is the fastest process with electronic documentation to get your business started, printed, notarised and apostilled corporate documents as well.
This package is the cheap and efficient way to begin business, as the UK registered company, and includes the provision of a registered office address, the cost of forwarding official post overseas for the duration of one year, and the provision of a nominee director for one year.
Who is it for?
This is one the most popular package for the EU and international small & medium size businesses, who wish to appoint the nominee director in order to maintain the anonymity.
There is a growing need of the UK based nominee directors who have vital knowledge of UK's and international tax planning principles and the national laws. As more and more foreign and offshore registered companies are opening up in the country, the need for those directors is increasing for the very important reason. There are double taxes levied on the foreign owned companies as against the domestically registered ones. A company with the nominee director will ensure that all legislative requirements are adhered to & takes care of the settlement of the annual fees, maintaining the registered office address in London, filling the annual return and so on.
You need to appoint a shareholder (who can be a physical person, or it can be a corporate body). You will also need to provide information about the person with the significant control, if such person is different from a company shareholder.
Your nominee director will not be listed as a person with significant control in any cases, there are no exemptions at all.
What do you get?
We will register your new company from scratch using one of our own registered office addresses, and appoint our own nominee director. You should appoint your own candidate as a shareholder. Upon registration, these details will be recorded as the original details of your private limited company with the public records.

The formation of a limited company usually takes as little as four to six hours from the time that your application & payment are received by Coddan. We will file your application electronically with the Companies House, allowing the fastest possible business registration.
This generally means that if you place an order before 13:00 (London time) on the normal working day; your private company will be registered by the end of that day.
Companies registration' can sometimes takes slightly longer. Although the majority of companies are incorporating within a maximum of twenty four hours, there may be occasions where the process takes longer due to circumstances beyond our control.
Due to the implementation of 2017 Money Laundering Regulations (EC Fourth Money Laundering Directive 2015/849) on 26 June 2017 it is now necessary for all Trust and Company Services providers including company formation agents (in our case: Coddan CPM LTD) to register with the HM Revenue & Customs and to put anti-money laundering systems into place.

These can be original documents or copies certified by a solicitor, notary public or commissioner for oaths.
