Frequently asked questions

Why would I choose this package?

Our Print Package is ideal for anyone who wants to start trading as soon as possible and have the printed legal documents to show to banks, lenders and potential investors. By selecting this package, you will have all of the necessary paperwork ready to present to third parties in a sleek and professional manner. Better yet, you’ll have saved 54% of the total cost by purchasing these items as part of our Print Package rather than buying them separately after incorporation.

The documents you will receive include: Certificate of Incorporation, Share Certificates, printed and bound Memorandum and Articles of Association, digital Company Register with First Entries and Minutes of the First Board Meeting.

What is required to set up a company?

To register a company limited by shares, you will need a company name, at least one director and one shareholder (both of whom can be the same person), a service address for each company officer and a registered office address. You must also decide how many shares you wish to issue. Our blog has a wealth of detailed guidance on the incorporation process, including information about directors, shareholders, company addresses and shares.

How many shares should I issue?

You must issue at least one share per shareholder. If you are setting up a limited company on your own, you can issue just one share to yourself. Alternatively, you can issue as many shares as you wish. Take a look at our blog for detailed guidance on issuing shares before making a decision.

Can I add a Registered Office Service to this package?

Yes, you can add any of our London or Glasgow address services to this package. We provide a Registered Office Address, a Service Address and a Business Address - all of which include mail forwarding in the UK and overseas. These addresses will enable you to create a professional, corporate profile whilst protecting the privacy of your home.

Are there any additional costs during the ordering process?

Nope. If you select this package without adding on any additional services, it will cost you just £22.99 plus VAT to register a limited company, which includes a discount of 62%. The £10.00 filing fee charged by Companies House is included in this price.
