Register a private company if you are a sole trader or freelancer

Sole Trader Company Formation

If you have decided that you wish to set-up a private limited company for the purposes of sole trading, there must be at least one director, one shareholder and possibly also a company secretary. Based on the regulation law, only one person is good enough to establish a private company in the United Kingdom.

You must also provide a registered business address so that the relevant authorities, such as Companies House and HM Revenue & Customs, can correspond with you. If you don't wish for the actual business where you work to be used, Coddan can provide an official registered address for the companies registration purposes and also manage your incoming mail from it.

Our experienced consultants are available to talk to you today about any matters concerning establishing your own firm as a sole trader or freelancer, should you need clarification or information about any aspect of the incorporation process.

If you want to use your own address as the legal address for your business, it does not matter in which part of the United Kingdom you are locating at; all you need to do is complete our online application form to be registered as a single member company, and we will do the rest of business incorporation. We have a long history of helping thousands of sole trading people successfully set up such single member enterprises.

For limited companies, there are a number of requirements from the authorities. The private company must be registered at Companies House and annual returns, and annual accounts must be filed there on time. Annual returns must be completed every year in order to update Companies House of the company's basic details. 

Additionally, under this type of private limited company structure, you must inform HM Revenue & Customs of taxable income within the financial year as well as any profits arising from that period, and you must send in a corporation tax return annually and pay the taxes within nine months of the year end. If there are employees of the company, they have to pay income tax and national insurance on what they earn.

The advantages of registering a limited company for sole trader and freelance businesses are that there is the greater business prestige when having this type of a company and there can be significant tax advantages for sole traders. You can hold tax money and earn interest on it because it's not payable monthly or quarterly but annually. There is really only a need to appoint one person as an officer of a private limited company, a director and a shareholder (the same person can be director and a shareholder); the appointment of a company secretary is not necessary unless specifically required.

Also, all of the company's officers can be of any nationality, and the limited company is designated as being overseas if its day-to-day corporate management do not live in the Great Britain.

The process of registering as sole trader and for a freelancer in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland is hassle-free at Coddan. The incorporation applications can be made using our secure online form that has the approval of Companies House.
