PLC Company Formation

Benefits of a public company formation with us: whether you take a package for UK customers or you opt to go for our packages for non-UK customers, the time for the PLC company registration is the same. It usually takes between three and five working hours from the moment you submit your application until the time you receive your public company documents. In some instances if you submit your application later than 2:00 p.m., you may receive your documents in the next working day, depending on how many companies are on the Companies House queue.

If, for whatever reason, you need to establish a public company limited by shares in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland on the same day and cannot afford to risk the possibility that it will register the following day, you can pay additional monies for the same day registration. This will guarantee that your public company is incorporated within the same working day, which is beneficial to you - should you need to meet bank appointments or access to your unique company code for a contractual obligation.

The guaranteed same day public organisation start-up in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast, Liverpool or Manchester feature is available in all the packages on offer at Coddan.

Provision of Qualified Secretary For a PLC Company

Provision of qualified secretary for a PLC company

While nowadays the company secretary is less relevant in the context of private limited companies it still has a crucial role in public companies. The PLC secretary needs to be qualified to act for a PLC. There are also extensive ongoing duties like organising board and general meetings. The company secretaries we provide are lawyers who are specialised in dealing with the PLCs. Call us to discuss your needs and see how we can help.
