Our aims to provide you with a professional, yet affordable, range of business support services to enable you to incorporate and run your own successful business.
We offer one of the most customisable, cost-effective, and affordable private company start-up for small businesses and private individuals. Unlike other companies who hide upfront costs, our fees are simple. We offer new limited company creation only for £24.99 - no hidden costs, annual fees, memberships or other pricing strategies. In fact, we guarantee that our business set-up and management service fees are the lowest that you may find.
Starting a new limited company is not particularly complicated, although two legal documents, the articles of association and the memorandum of association (the company's constitution documents), will need to be prepared. Signed and certified copies of these documents, and an application form to form a new company, must be submitted to the registrar of companies at Companies House.
When opening your company we submit our general memorandum and articles of association (our standard version of the memorandum and articles of association is very widely drawn, and is suitable for most types of commercial business) to Companies House.
We can also open your company using your own memorandum and articles of association. You just need to complete our online order form, and then e-mail us the memorandum and articles of association that you want to start your company with.
Our electronic filing system makes incorporation of a company very straightforward. It automatically produces and customises all the required paperwork's, including the memorandum and articles of association, the first meeting of the board of directors and the company register. You may use our electronic filing programme to register the following type of companies in England, Wales, and Scotland:
Company secretaries are also frequently involved with making sure the company is legally compliant in areas such as health and safety and data protection. They are also often asked to sign leases on behalf of the board or act as a signatory more generally & may also get involved in negotiations with outside advisers, including accountants and lawyers. If a company has a company secretary, directors will usually delegate their responsibility for ensuring sending up-to-date information to Companies House to the secretary.
Our software has been approved by Registrar of Companies, and our prices include all Companies Registry' fees and legal required documentation.
