UK company formations procedure and required steps

UK Company Start-Up

UK company formations procedure: we have a number of limited companies startup packages to suit various requirements. The price starts at just £24.99 and includes electronic certificate of incorporation and tailor-made memorandum and articles of association, we do not use the standard model articles as many other registered agencies are do. Our online service for company creation includes the option of a free business banking account with Barclays, RBS, Lloyds or NatWest. In addition, clients can also apply for the VAT registration.

Those applying to start a private company for the first time need to be mindful of the name they have chosen for it. By law, the corporate name must end in either "Limited" or "Ltd". For people in Wales, they can choose the Welsh "Cyfyngedig" or "Cyf" in place of "Limited". We have added a number of important notes to the order form to help you to avoid some common mistakes that sometimes result in Companies Registrar rejecting a limited company establishment' application.

Also, in the actual name you have chosen for your new  corporate incorporation, there are various words that are not allowed by Companies House. These include sensitive words that may cause offence and those that may imply the business has a connection to the government. Of course, you cannot have a name if it already exists on the Company House register, and all new applications are first checked. If there is a problem with your chosen name, we will contact you to discuss the matter.

To setting up a limited company with Coddan, you do not need to create an account with us; you do not need to apply for any sort of a membership on our website. All you need to do is to complete our private company formation application, pay for the order and we will do the rest.
