Our 4 step guide to setting up a company

There are just four simple steps to our company formation service, all designed to make the process as easy as possible for you by saving all the information you enter but allowing you to return to any of it to amend, update, without starting all over again. You can always continue your application from where it's left off if you need to return later.

1. Choose a company name

Once you have decided on the name you would like to use for your company, simply visit our homepage , to check its availability straight away.

This quick search tool is connected to the database at Companies House and will immediately confirm if your chosen name is available to use and approved by Companies House.

If the proposed name of the company is too close to or the same as an existing company name then Companies House will not approve its use but our free search tool means that you can try as many variations of a name or a completely new name as many times as you like until you decide on one you would like to use that is available and can be approved.

2. Select a package

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

The packages have been designed to suit every budget too and you can always add on any additional services you find you subsequently need from our excellent range.

3. Make payment

Once you have decided which package you would like, together with any additional services, simply make your selections and you will be asked to complete your order details and make payment through our secure process using a debit or credit card or via PayPal. An order confirmation and an invoice will then be emailed to you.

4. Complete your company’s details

Following 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.

On receipt of this, we will review the application for errors and omissions before submitting to Companies House and then your company will be formally incorporated and registered within 24 hours at which time we will forward the company’s statutory incorporation documents.
