About the Scottish dormant private company limited by shares package
In any given period, a company is dormant if it does not carry out any accounting transactions, disregarding the following: -
1. The payment for membership issued on formation of the company;
2. The fee paid to Companies House to change the company's name;
3. The fee paid to Companies House on filing an annual return;
4. The payment of a civil penalty for late filing of accounts.
Dormant companies must file the dormant accounts with Companies House and Inland Revenue. If a company commences trading or carries out any transaction (other than those listed above) then it will cease to be dormant and normal company accounts will have to be filed.
Who is this package for?
Our dormant private company limited by shares formation package is ideal for those, who will use a dormant company for the following purpose(s): -
1. To protect a business name, or to be the owner of the domain name(s);
2. To own an asset such as land or intellectual property;
3. To hold shares of other companies' shares (including business entities registered in other countries);
4. To use an entity as the management company (property or business management purpose);
5. To use a dormant entity as the corporate director, shareholder, or as the secretary in other companies.
