4 Step Guide to Set Up a UK Company | 121CompanyFormation.co.uk

There are just four simple steps to our company formation service, all of which are designed to make the process as easy as possible for our clients. Our system allows you to save partially completed applications, so you to return to it, amend, update or complete it at any time.

1. CHOOSE A COMPANY NAME

Once you have decided on the name you would like to use for your company, visit our homepage to use our quick check tool to verify its availability

This quick search tool is connected to the Companies House database and can immediately confirm if your chosen company name is available and approved by Companies House. If the proposed company name is too close to, or the same as an existing company name Companies House will not approve its use.

We are pleased to offer our quick search tool free of charge which means that you can try as many variations as many times as you like until you find one that is suitable, available, and approved.

2. SELECT A PACKAGE

There are three types of Limited company available:

  • Limited by Shares (and Limited by Shares for non-UK residents)
  • Limited Liability Partnership
  • Limited by Guarantee

For each type of Limited company available, 121 Company Formation offers different company formation packages so you can choose what level of support you need for the company’s incorporation and during its first year of trading.

The company incorporation packages have been designed to suit every budget. Plus we offer you the option to add on additional business support services at any time, from administrative services such as handling your incoming calls, to a full range of bookkeeping and accounting services.

 

3. SUBMIT PAYMENT

Make your selection once you have decided which company formation package is most suitable. You will be asked to complete your order details and submit payment through our secure online portal using a credit card, debit card, or via PayPal. An order confirmation and an invoice will then be emailed to you.

4. COMPLETE YOUR COMPANY’S DETAILS

On receipt of your order and payment, you will be asked to complete a company incorporation document online which will prompt you to enter details of the company’s registered address, full details of its officers, its shareholders, SIC code and so forth.

We will review the application for errors and omissions before submitting to Companies House. Within 24 hours your company will be formally incorporated and registered at which time we will email your company’s statutory incorporation documents.
