How much time does it take to register a UK Limited Company?

UK limited company registration takes very little time and effort if you choose online company formation through an agent. You can fill up the company formation form in just 5 minutes if you have all of the required documents ready. After submitting the form, your new company will be registered at Companies House within 1 day.

Please watch the video given below to get more details:

Registering a UK limited company using the form IN01 – application may take at least 8 to 10 days and it also costs significantly more than online incorporation through a company formation agent.

The smallest mistakes and oversights usually result in application rejection by the Companies House or delays in the formation of new companies. The online application form significantly reduces the chance of errors because of built-in checks.

Also, there is a high chance of a postal application getting rejected. Companies House reports that 53% of paper applications are rejected compared to just 8% of online applications.
