It is possible to buy a company ‘off the shelf’ on the internet and indeed, many people make this mistake, but so many factors need to be taken into account before heading blindly into what may appear to be a good deal initially, and you could find that forming a company yourself and making a mistake can have a very costly outcome.

We have years of experience in company formation and will give you all the help and support you need to ascertain the key facts for the business before the company is formed including advice on the appointment of directors and company secretary; issue and transfer of shares; incorporation; and completion of all necessary statutory paperwork including resolutions and minutes. In addition we can act as your registered office (which is where all official mail will be sent), we can assist you in opening a bank account, register the company for corporation tax and VAT and set up your payroll scheme and bookkeeping systems.

A new company can be formed in one day if necessary, so if it is urgent, contact us now and we will work with you quickly and efficiently. If you already have a name in mind, you can use the Companies House web check service to see if it is available. This will tell you if the name is already in use or not.
