Limited company start up - DIY or via a business registration agents?

Company Registration Agent

If you are thinking of registering a limited company, but are not sure whether to do it yourself or enlist the help of a business start-up agent, Coddan is waiting to help.

There are more than 2 million registered businesses in the UK and they are all incorporated with Companies House. Anybody that has started a organisation will know that there is a raft of paperwork to overcome and, although it is cheaper to do it yourself, it can be fraught with problems that cost you money and distract you from the real job of launching your enterprise. Therefore, a small saving in the short-term can swiftly evolve into an expensive and time-consuming nightmare, especially if you are not the world's best with paperwork.

With the price of company incorporation packages at an all-time low, it can often make sense to go straight to the experts. If you require same-day start-up then your incorporation agent can set the wheels in motion right away, get the requisite paperwork from you and ensure that everything is up and running. If you do it yourself and make a mistake, which can happen with material this complex, then your business could be delayed and that always costs money.

With years of experience in business, the legally authorised business set-up agent may be able to save you money right away, by identifying a better way to structure your affairs. You may not even need a private company and may be better off as a sole trader or an LLP, for instance, and that is just the start.

A business creation agent can have a number of additional services that could save you money or help you down the road, too, things you may not have considered. Coddan, for instance, can help you with nominee officers that can help you meet the minimum requirements for legal entity registration while allowing you to retain anonymity. A registered office address is another way to base your business in an affluent area without the upfront expense.

Even after business establishment, there are many things to decide upon. From the UK or offshore banking to VAT registration, forming an entity for specific business interests or changing the structure for other reasons, your company formation agent can help. There is also an element of ongoing care as you can contact us and ask us about paperwork and other filing responsibilities that could potentially cost you much more if you end up on the wrong side of HMRC and Companies House.
