We can take care of your Scottish non-profit company set-up: at Coddan, we're able to handle the formation of your non-profit company in Scotland and will do so with the minimum of disruption to you and at highly competitive fees. Our expertise in law ensures that we're best placed to create a non-profit association for you there, drawing on our many years of experience in doing so with thousands of clients. It pays to choose a company startup firm that's versed in Scottish company law because it differs from company law in other parts of the United Kingdom.
In order to open your company limited by guarantee in Scotland, you will need to fill out our online application form. This handy and time-freeing process has been vetted and approved by Companies House and it allows you to register your non-profit corporation with the least amount of trouble. From there, we will deal with Companies House to make sure your new enterprise is properly registered. If it's a charity you're setting up, we will seek the necessary approval from the Charity Commission.
You'll need two people to nominate for officer positions in the company, but if you don't have enough or would rather not use some, for confidentiality or privacy reasons, we can provide nominee officers. These officials will be part of the company in name only and won't have any direct involvement in it; and you can change them at any time.
To establish a non-profit in Scotland, you must provide an official office address. It doesn't have to be where you're exactly carrying out your business but it must be in Scotland itself. If you don't have an business address in Scotland, or would prefer not to use one that you have there, as it would appear on the official records at Company House, we can supply an official address in Edinburgh.
