How long does a company formation take?

Company formations normally take up to 3 working hours (excluding bank holidays and weekends).  


Company Formation MadeSimple uses the Electronic Filing facilities at Companies House, so when you place an order on our website, your request is sent instantly to Companies House for processing.

Companies House then completes the incorporation within 3 working hours depending on their workload or technical difficulties. We will then email your company number and documents as soon as your company is incorporated.  


Your company will appear on the Companies House register within 3 working hours of your company's incorporation date.

Please note, company registrations submitted on weekends or UK bank holidays will be incorporated the next working day.
