Benefits for non-UK residents registering as sole trader or freelancer in the UK: if you're not a resident of the United Kingdom, you can still register a freelancer and/or sole trader company in the Great Britain and transact business. With Coddan Formations Agency, our long experience in this type of business registration will ensure it's done properly and with expertise. One of the benefits of registering as a sole trader here, if you're non-UK resident, is the range of assistance that we can provide. For instance, if you don't have an actual place of business, as in an office, shop or other type of premises, we can provide you with our own official address for the sole trader or freelance business registration purposes.
Registering any kind of private companies in the United Kingdom with Companies House, the official government agency, requires that there be an official legal address listed where the enterprise can be contacted and official documents and mail sent. It is also required for the purpose of potential inspections by various government authorities.
In situations where self-employed people are working from home and they use that address for registration, they are putting themselves at risk of intrusions and disturbances. This can range from inspections to creditors suddenly turning up and demanding overdue payments.
Coddan Formations Agency takes the headache out of such situations by providing the official address for registration, and it can be in prime locations in major cities around the country, including a prestigious address in London. We also handle incoming mail and can forward it on to you.
Another benefit for non-resident sole traders wishing to register is that we can provide nominee officers for the enterprise in cases where you don't have any available. A minimum of one person is required to be appointed as an officer to a private limited company. That person can be a company director and shareholder on the same time.
