Limited by share packages

The following are limited by share packages we offer:

Basic Package

What am I buying?

A private UK limited company, limited by shares.

I am an International resident, is this package suitable for me?

No. If you live overseas you will need a UK registered office address and this package does not include a UK address, please see the other packages that offer this.

I'm not sure what I need right now, can I buy the Basic Package and add other services to it later?

Absolutely. However, the services will not be available at the discounted package rates.

Can I print the Certificate of Incorporation myself?

Of course, you will have access to digital versions of both the incorporation and share certificates in your online admin portal.
However, please note that if you wish to use the certificate in an official capacity then it needs to be printed on Companies House approved paper, as all our original versions are.

What if I only need the company name and nothing else?

If you're looking to start trading immediately or very soon, then our Basic Package is the cheapest way to get up and running quickly and easily. However, if you want to open a bank account, we recommend the risk-free package as most bank managers require this official documentation.

How do I redeem the offers in the free start-up business toolkit?

After your company is incorporated, within 72 hours, we'll email you more information about each of the toolkit extras (free domain, tax consultation, etc) including information on how to redeem each one. The offers are provided by our trusted partners and have been carefully selected to help your new company; you won't be contacted by any third parties without your consent.

Do I need to provide my proof of ID and residential address for this package?

No.
