If you live in the UK or just want to trade here, there are different ways to register your company and become official. Luckily, the days of lengthy paper form filling and waiting for everything to be done are gone. These days, you can form a new business in one working day, and even hire an agent to do all the work for you.
When you think about starting a business, the first question you have to ask yourself is what kind of company do you want to form? Then once you know that, you can move on to the actual company formation process, i.e. filling up a form manually and sending it to the Companies House. Also, you can register online to speed up the formation process.
Virtual Office service involves collecting and completing the documentation needed for the company forming process online on your behalf. There is no paperwork required to sign, and a certificate of incorporation is provided once the application is approved.
The details needed to create an online limited company includes:
- Business name (as per Company House regulations)
- Email to the registered office
- Manager information
- Shareholders' or guarantors' information
- Association Memorandum and Papers
- Capital Claim
- Security information
- A PSC Database (significant control persons)
A growing number of company owners use virtual office services to manage a variety of areas such as telephone call answering by admin, saving money on hiring workers, and maintaining the consistency of the service offered to customers. Such services include mail delivery, telephone answering, message receipt, and call forwarding, and even the use of a conference room in London along with reception staff to attract prospective buyers, partners, and investors who visit London.
