Registering a limited company is easy, especially with our help! The whole process typically only takes a few working hours - meaning you could be up and running by the end of the day.
We here at Ltd Companies work with Companies House to register your company details - to date we've helped almost half a million companies!
All good things start with a name - once you've decided yours we help you check the availability of the name with Companies House - we'll let you know right away whether it is available for use.
Once you've picked an available name choose from one of our packages - we've tailored them to ensure every companies needs are met - simply choose the level of services you require.
Then it's time to tell us your company details - such as directors, shareholders, and company addresses. We have a handy checklist below! Once that's done we'll register your company with Companies House (usually within a day if not sooner!) and you will receive all your new company details via email.
