About the provision of a registered office address & the due diligence requirements: due to the implementation of 2007 Money Laundering Regulations (EC Third Money Laundering Directive) on 15 December 2007, it is now necessary for all Trust and Company Services providers including company formation agents to register with the HM Revenue & Customs and to put anti-money laundering systems into place.
We are therefore required to ask for a scanned identification of limited company directors and beneficial owners of companies via e-mail first before we can undertake to provide a registered address. Within 14 days, we will require you to post us a recent utility bill showing your real ("shadow") directors and beneficial owners of companies names and current addresses and also a passport or a driving licence.
These can be original documents or copies certified by a solicitor, notary public or commissioner for oaths. If you are an overseas-based client, you should provide us a copy of your passport and utility bill with the notarised translation into English.
We can process the order immediately to incorporate your new private company and provide a registered office service but will have to file a change of nominees to the details of the purchaser of the company if the due diligence information is not provided within 14 days of the commencement of the service.
If you are willing to register a private company limited by shares, register a company limited by guarantee, setting-up a public company, or establish a limited liability partnership (LLP), we can serve your needs. You can have a registered address from us at Baker Street in London, and we can act as the legal service address provider for behalf of your LTD, RTM company, CIC company, or LLP. We are accepting new orders, and we accept clients who are willing to change their current service providers.
