Requirements to register a limited company in Northern Ireland: there are few more exciting times than registering your own private company in Ulster. Whether you have been driven to self-employment by the recession or hatched a plan to be the next biggest mogul in Belfast, the day you start your corporation is one of the biggest steps you will take in life.
So it pays to get things right at the start. Rather than fumble with forms and struggle to make sense of government legislation, you can turn to Coddan for literally every step of the limited company set-up and beyond. Therefore, if you are wondering how to register a firm in Northern Ireland then you can simply contact us and put everything in our hands.
We can perform this check on your behalf as well as checking all companies that have been dissolved in the past 12 months for a clash that could reflect badly on your new firm. If you then want to protect it without going to the level of registration an NI limited company, there are ways and means to do so with a dormant company creation or other formats.
Once you have the name, it's time to decide on a corporate structure. That could be anything from a sole trader right through to a public limited company. Assuming you have to go sole trader or limited company as a small enterprise is a mistake, there are a number of options open to you and some of them may not be immediately obvious. For instance, a limited liability partnership costs more to set up, but comes with a number of tax advantages and more flexibility than a limited company that may appeal to you.
We can help you decide on the company format and, in most cases, carry out a same-day registration. We can even supply ready-made companies and off-the-shelf LLPs, that are fully registered and ready to go if you need to start trading immediately.
We can also provide nominated directors, a prestigious business address that you can present to potential clients as your trading address and a number of other useful services. For overseas clients we can carry out the complete private company registration in Northern Ireland and help with the most tax-efficient way to withdraw profits.
