Free Company Formation

Our friendly, dedicated formations team can get it all done in one day and best of all, it’s completely free.

Setting up a limited company can be a more tax efficient way of working and it can bring extra status to your business.

It can also be a daunting prospect, particularly if you are new to business or unfamiliar with the rules and regulations around limited company formations.

To make life simpler in unfamiliar territory, our specialist formations teams are available every weekday to help you set up a completely new and legally sound company.

We can get it all done in one day and best of all, it’s completely free.

All you need to do is pick the name

We will help you take the plunge and get all the nitty gritty details sorted so you are ready to start trading as soon as possible.

All you need to do is pick a company name that hasn’t already been used. Check whether your name is available here:

As the limited company is a separate legal entity, you will need a business bank account. In partnership with Cashplus, we can help you set up a competitive business bank account quickly and easily. Learn more here.

Our team can also help you source the best insurance policy. Of course, if you prefer to find your own providers then we will be more than happy to assist in any way we can.

Some newly formed companies need to register for VAT. Our specialist formations team can help you through the VAT registration process and advise you on how to be tax efficient.

Once your limited company is set up, we’ll double check that all your documentation is right and send it over to you. Then the formations team will introduce you to your dedicated Umbrella Accountant who will look after you going forwards.
