Starting a Company

Creating a UK Company

Deciding to start your own business is a big decision and how the company is set up at the start is crucial. This section focuses on how you create a UK company and whether it becomes limited or not, and we have included some of the things you should consider.

The following pages are a snap shot in plain English and is not intended to offer you any professional advice on your own personal circumstances. We would highly recommend you seek professional advice from an Accountant or Solicitor before incorporating a limited company.

You can access more detailed guidance on the Companies Act 2006 on the Companies House website. Although Companies House provides you with all the information, it also does not offer you any specific advice in regards to your own business. 

Our virtual office services can provide you with a business mailing address, registered office as well as telephone numbers and answering services, all designed to ensure that your resources (time and money) are used effectively.
