Why Online Company Formation is the way to go if you are looking to register your business

Firstly, congratulations. You are now at a stage where your business idea is ready to become a reality. The next step is registering a company with Companies House, the question is; what is the best way to go about doing this?

You can of course go straight through Companies House, but what if you want something more than a bare-bones formation? 

There are many issues for directors-to-be to consider, this is why online company formation through a registered agent – like us – is an attractive option. This blog will demonstrate the key benefits of forming through a company formation agent.

A vast array of packages

By selecting a company formation agent you will be able to select from a variety of packages. We offer 5 packages each offering a variety of different services. For example, if all you want is a basic formation – plus digital copies of all your essential documents – then our Basic Package will cover this.

You may want some added extras such as a Registered Office and Service Address Services. If that’s the case, our Privacy Package could be for you. Or maybe you want more – no problem – how about our Ultimate Package? This includes VAT Registration with HMRC, our Annual Return Service and bound copies of your Memorandum and Articles of Association.

Manage companies with your online admin portal

Another benefit of forming your company through an agent is that you get your own online admin portal. This is where you can store all the essential information about your company (such as filing obligation due dates) – viewable whenever you choose.

If changes occur within your company, such as a new director being appointed or new shares being added – these can be made via your portal. The changes are then sent automatically to Companies House.

A team who’s there to help you

It is understandable if you require assistance with your company formation. We have a very helpful Customer Service team who will help your through any issues that you may encounter. If it’s general assistance you want or you have an enquiry about our wide range of products, our Customer Service team are here to help you.

We hope that you found this post useful. Forming a company is an exciting time, but it’s also a time to do things correctly. Take a look at our register a limited company page for more information on how we can help you #ChangeYourLife.
