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.
