Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to provide proof of ID?
No if you are buying the Basic or Printed company formation packages.
Yes if you are buying the registered office/service address service (Privacy, Comprehensive and Ultimate company formation packages). In this case we are required by law to hold proof of ID and proof of address.
We have a legal obligation to check proof of ID and proof of address for all customers who use our address services. This is to ensure we comply with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations and Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements. For which documents you need to provide us please check the FAQs.
Will I still need an accountant?
For certain tasks we do recommend that you use an accountant.
This is why we offer a free consultation with a local TaxAssist accountant once your company has been formed.
We provide you with lots of inclusive services and tools to keep accounting costs down.
All of our packages include a free 2-month trial to FreeAgent, easy-to-use small business accounting software that helps keep you on top of all your business finances. Our Comprehensive and Ultimate Packages take care of some of the things that your accountant would normally do, such as preparing and filing your company's Annual Return. With the Ultimate Package we'll also register your company for VAT with HMRC.
Less work for your accountant equals lower fees for you.
Is there a renewal cost annually?
This depends on the package that you choose.
The Privacy Package has an annual renewal cost of £59.99, only applicable if you want to continue using our Registered Office and Service Address to keep your residential address confidential and off Companies House public register.
The Comprehensive and Ultimate packages have an annual renewal cost of £99.99, only applicable if you want to continue using our Registered Office and Service Address to keep your residential address confidential and off Companies House public register. Also included is our Maintenance of Statutory Books Service and Preparation/Filing of Annual Return service.
What if I only need the company name and none of the other parts?
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 printed package as
most bank managers require this official documentation.
On, the other hand, if you simply want to secure your chosen company name for the future, then you can reserve it here.
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.
I don't live in the UK, can I still open a UK company & bank account?
You can form a UK limited company regardless of your nationality or location.
A UK limited company must have a registered office based in the UK. Our Privacy, Comprehensive and Ultimate Packages all include use of our Registered Office Service for one year (you have the option to renew after this period), perfect for customers who do not have access to their own UK address.
Our International package is the ideal solution for overseas customers looking to form a UK Limited company. It also includes a 1 hour tax consultation with our UK Tax Experts who can also assist you with other professional services such as assistance with opening a UK bank account and online accountancy services (please note the cost for these services is to be arranged separately with our tax and banking partner).

What are my statutory and legal requirements once I start a Limited Company?

If you choose the Comprehensive or Ultimate Package, we take care of the annual return for you.
You or your accountant will need to submit annual tax returns and company accounts to HMRC.
As a director of a limited company you must act in the best interests of the company and not necessarily yourself.
