Quick company formations
The first option of the private company limited by guarantee formation for non-UK customers is the fastest process with electronic documentation to get your non-profit business started, and printed corporate documents as well.
This package is the cheap and efficient way to begin none profitable business, as the UK registered non-profit company, and includes the provision of the registered office address in Edinburgh, and the cost of forwarding an official post overseas for the duration of one year.
This package is particularly attractive to any aspiring entrepreneur starting up a UK company limited by guarantee for the first time; who has a clear understanding of the mandatory responsibilities that accompanies owning a business, and for companies owned by overseas residents (individuals, companies and/or trustees) who still need a local registered office address, but would rather not open a UK local office.
You need to appoint a company director (physical person) and a member (who can be the same person as a company director, or it can another person or 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 director or member.

1. A certificate of incorporation;
2. The memorandum & articles of association;
3. The meeting of the board of directors;

We will incorporate your new company from scratch using one of our own registered office addresses in Edinburgh, and appoint your own candidates to the roles of a director, secretary (not always needed, but it is still recommended) and a member. Upon your company formation, these officer(s)' details will be registered as the original details of your non-profit business entity.
Your application will be submitting electronically. We are the approved E-filing partner of Companies Registrar and our online incorporation technology is one of the most advanced in the business start-up industry.

The formation of a company limited by guarantee 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 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.
If you will order a registered office address, or a nominee director, secretary or nominee member from us, we are therefore required to ask for the scanned identification of a company members and beneficial owners of all newly registered companies via e-mail first before we can undertake to provide incorporation service for your limited company.
Within 14 days we will require you to post us a recent utility bill(s) (for past three months) showing names and current addresses of your company' members and beneficiary owner(s)', and also their passport or driving licence(s).
These can be original documents or copies certified by a solicitor, notary public or commissioner for oaths.
If you are an overseas based client you should provide us copies of passport(s) and utility bill(s) with the notarised translation into English. We can process the order immediately to incorporate your new limited company, but will not send you corporate documents until we receive required due diligence documents.
