We can register a UK private company on your behalf digitally within a matter of hours and for as little as £24.99. This basic digitally private company set-up service is available to local residents with their own premises in the country. It offers a straightforward, quick way to set-up your private company and get down to business.
Coddan can offer this unrivalled speed of companies set-up due to the close relationship with Companies House that they have built up over two decades spent helping people establish their businesses.
A key advantage of digitally setting-up a private company is the fact that you will no longer be personally liable for any debts incurred during the course of trading. If you intend to deal with large organisations, they may require you to set-up a private company in UK before they will sign contracts. On the downside, moving from being self-employed to owning an enterprise with a limited liability will mean that the authorities will require you to submit more detailed yearly returns.
We can help you meet the annual reporting requirements of running a private company with our optional accounting and bookkeeping services. For a reasonable annual fee these will ensure that you meet all of your legal incorporation requirements.
We can also act as your VAT registered expert, collecting invoices and even preparing and submitting returns on your behalf.
As part of the basic private limited company formation package, Coddan offers a free bank referral to either Barclays, Lloyds, RBS or NatWest as part of the process of opening a business account with a private company set-up. You will still be subject to the bank's own identity and credit checks after being referred.
There is no requirement for the officers of your company to be UK citizens or residents, nor for them to hold valid work permits. Owning, or being an officer of a private company does not, however, grant you any right to live or work in the UK if you are a foreign national.
To set-up a company you must have a valid registered address in the United Kingdom. Call us to discuss your incorporation needs and see how we can help.
On top of the basic company formation in UK package, we have three more packages with additional services for local residents to choose from. The second adds extra documents including share certificates, the company's registers and the minutes of a meeting of the board of directors.
The third offers all of these documents, but elegantly printed and bound in leather. The final package includes the provision of a prestigious registered office address in London with free mail forwarding. To maintain the registered address after year one incurs an annual fee.
