UK companies can be registered, owned and operated outside of the UK, regardless of where you live and the industry in which you trade. The process is simple, inexpensive and can be organised quickly and remotely. This makes UK companies very accessible for international trade.

There's no need for anyone to visit the UK, our Company registration service takes only a few hours and can all be done online. Simply choose the name of your company - we will check it's availablity with Companies House on your behalf.
The company can have as many Directors and Shareholders as you like, regardless of where they live. As long as you have at least one person as a Director and Shareholder you can also have corporate Directors and Shareholders too.
Upon completion of the registration, documentation will be produced, some sent via email then all hard copies sent by DHL and your tracking number emailed to you.
The Registered Office of the company has to be in the UK and must be a physical address, not a PO Box. We will provide you with a Registered Office address in London and Mail Forwarding services. We'll then forward mail on to you.
UK telephone number for the business will be included, for this there is a monthly charge payable to our partner company. The calls can be diverted to a number of your choice or answered for you if you wish.
The company will have to pay UK Corporation Tax on any profit it makes, VAT needs to be considered too. Annually, accounts need completing and submitting to both HMRC and Companies House, along with other Annual Returns.
As part of our packages, we'll have an accountant on tap for you to speak to who could complete your legal obligations for you.
The company will have to have a business bank account to receive company money. You can choose where and which bank you prefer. It does not have to use a UK bank account.
If you're going to open a bank account outside the UK for the company, then you will need certified and legalised documentation. We can provide this.
Allowing your customers to pay with a credit or debit card:
Take credit and debit cards over the phone, through the company's website or with the customer present.
For this you need two facilities: 1) a Merchant Account and 2) a Card Payment Terminal (face to face), Virtual Terminal (over the phone) or Payment Gateway (through a website).
Due to Covid 19 in the UK there are certain delays with parts of the documentation, if you would like to discuss this before you proceed then please call us on 01233 226220
