Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)

£59.99

Why do you need an LLP Agreement?

Save on legal costs and avoid expensive disputes by using our free draft LLP Agreement, prepared by our specialist partnership solicitors.

Without an LLP agreement, it is not possible to divide the share capital and profits other than equally, regardless of whether members of the LLP have invested different amounts. Also, in the absence of an agreement a member who is not performing cannot be removed from the LLP.

The applicable legislation will impose certain rights and obligations on the members which may not reflect their intentions. Having a written agreement in place gives members the opportunity to vary or exclude the default position imposed by law, and to establish an agreement in other areas.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to provide proof of ID?

No if you are buying the Basic or Printed company formation packages.

Yes, only if you are buying a company formation package which includes any one of our address services including the Registered Office, Service Address or Mail Forwarding services.

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 within the Business Start Up Toolkit, included in all the limited by shares packages plus the Contractors package. The toolkit also includes 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 Confirmation Statement. With the Ultimate Package and the Contractor 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 plus VAT, 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 plus VAT, which includes our Registered Office and Service Address plus the preparation/filing of your Confirmation Statement.

The Classic and Banking International packages for non-UK residents have an annual renewal of £99.99 plus VAT. This renewal includes the use of our Registered Office and Service Address plus the preparation and filing of your Confirmation Statement. The international mail forwarding service is not included as part of this renewal as it is provided by our sister company, Virtual Office MadeSimple. The mail forwarding service can be renewed separately for £99.99 plus VAT per year.

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 a limited by shares company 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 and bank account?

You can form a UK limited company regardless of your nationality or location.

Our International packages are the ideal solution for overseas customers looking to form a UK Limited company. The International Banking package includes assistance with opening a UK bank account and both packages include a 1 hour tax consultation with our UK Tax Experts, who can also assist you with other professional services such as online accountancy services (please note the cost for these services is to be arranged separately with our tax and banking partner). More information

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

Limited companies are required to file confirmation statements and annual accounts with Companies House. If you choose the Comprehensive or Ultimate Package, we take care of the Confirmation Statement 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.

How much tax will I save by starting a Limited company vs. being a sole trader?

This depends on your circumstances. You may find this Sole Trader v Limited Calculator helpful.

How do I get funding for my new business?

There are a number of options available when it comes to funding a business. These can be split into two categories; debt financing sources and equity financing sources. Debt financing sources would include banks, lease financing and trade credit. Equity financing sources would include venture capitalist companies and private individuals. More info
