Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose the Compliance Package?

This package has been designed to provide peace of mind to those who are concerned about remaining compliant with Companies House and HMRC.

We will register your limited company with HMRC for VAT and we will prepare and file your first confirmation statement.

We also include our GDPR Compliance Package which will assist you in making your company GDPR complaint quickly and inexpensively.

Are address services included as part of this package?

Yes. This package includes the London Registered Office and Service Address, ensuring your home address is not displayed on the public record.

When will my company be ready to trade?

Your new limited by shares company will be ready to trade from the moment your application is approved by Companies House. The standard processing time is within 3 to 6 hours of submission; however, sometimes Companies House takes a little longer.

Should you wish to start trading straight away, you must remember to set up your company for Corporation Tax. This must be done with HMRC online within 3 months of commencing trading.

Are there any additional costs?

No. Your company formation will cost £49.99 +VAT if you choose this package without adding any optional extras.

How many people are required to register a limited company?

Just one. You can incorporate, own and manage your limited company as a sole director and shareholder, or you can set up and run it with lots of other people. It’s entirely up to you. Simply enter the name(s) of each director and shareholder on the online application form.

Do I need a Business Bank Account for my company?

Legally, no. But for practical reasons you should open and operate a business account for any new business as soon as it begins trading. This will enable you to correctly record and monitor your company finances, and it will be far easier to work out your business income and expenditure when you’re completing annual accounts and tax returns.

We offer up to 8 business bank accounts with every company formation package. All have easy online account opening applications, including Barclays, TSB, Mettle, Cashplus, Revolut, CardOne and ANNA.

Do I need to supply proof of ID?

All company formation agents have a legal obligation to check proof of ID and address, including ourselves.

Don’t worry – the likelihood is you will not have to do anything, as 90% of our customers successfully pass our digital ID checks.

If you don’t pass our digital ID check, do not worry – almost all of our customers are able to provide their proof of ID and address via our Credas App. For more information, see here.
