Requirements to register a holding company in Great Britain: if you require setting-up a holding company in the UK, Coddan can register one up for you with ease, and make sure it's done properly and professionally. Then you can use it to hold stakes in other limited companies and to manage them. In addition to assisting with starting up a holding company in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales, we offer a range of services that can be beneficial to clients. These include providing nominees for directors and secretary as well as a registered office address.
The advantage of using our nominees as the company's officers is that you can retain your anonymity because your name and those of others in your organisation who would otherwise be registered officers of the holding company will not appear on official records at Company House.
The provision of an official registered office address from Coddan for the purpose of registering the holding company gives you an added level of protection in that you don't have to use your actual place of business. All correspondence from the authorities sent to our address would be forwarded straight on to you. It also avoids disruptive inspections by the authorities or unexpected visits from potential creditors seeking overdue payments.
We can also assist in the opening of a bank account and perform a tax review concerning the registration of the holding company; it's vital that this is done properly as otherwise there can be major costs involved.
After the holding company is registered and formed, we can provide a number of services to ensure its smooth running, including bookkeeping and accountancy and audit advice. We can also help with the preparation of business plans and advise on ways to raise finance.
To register your holding company with Coddan, all you need to do is fill out our online application form and we will submit it to Companies House for processing. Most applications are approved within 3-4 hours but can be less, and we have a number of packages to suit individual clients' needs.
