It could not be easier to set up a limited company or LLP with Rapid Formations. To start the company registration process, simply enter your company name into our name check tool, select a package (£12.99) and add any address services you may require, check out and take 5 minutes to complete your details. Your new company will usually be approved in 3 to 6 working hours; however, this timescale is subject to Companies House workload and it may take longer.
To form a limited company you simply need a company name, the business activity of the company, a registered office address in the UK, and the details of the company directors, shareholders and People with Significant Control (PSC). The beneficial owners of the company, those owning more than 25% of the issued shares, may also be required to provide proof of ID and address. For more information, please have a look at our Required Information Checklist.
It is not a legal requirement for a UK registered company to have a business bank account; however, in practice you will find it extremely hard to operate a business without its own bank account. Rapid Formations offers up to 8 business bank accounts with all company registration packages, including Barclays, Mettle, TSB, CardOne, Countingup, Cashplus, and Revolut. We also offer a business banking solution for overseas customers who wish to set up a UK company - see our Non-Residents Packages or details.
Approximately half a million companies registered in the UK are dissolved (shut down) every year at Companies House, so if you decide you no longer need your company and want to shut it down, there is no need to worry – it happens fairly often! Rapid Formations can dissolve your company hassle free, at a cost of only £49.99 plus VAT. Find out more and order our Company Dissolution Service.
