Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to pay to sign up?

No, it’s absolutely free! There are no sign up costs or subscriptions.

How much does it cost to form a company?

We offer 3 different formation packages:

  • Starter - £11.99 +VAT
  • Executive - £15.99 +VAT
  • Professional - £34.99 +VAT

All prices include the Companies House £13 filing fee. Of course, you are then welcome to charge your clients your usual company formation fees.

What are the payment options?

All services, including company formations, are paid for up-front via online card payments. If you would prefer not to enter your card details each time you wish to buy a service, you can add an amount of credit (of your choosing) to your account via a one-off payment. Future payments are then knocked off of this credit.

Do my clients know that Company Formation MadeSimple assisted with the formation?

No, all company documentation is sent on to you - we will not contact your clients.

How do I apply for a bank account for my client?

  1. During the formation process, you’ll provide your client’s contact information which we’ll pass to Barclays.
  2. Within 2 days of the incorporation, Barclays will make the initial contact to arrange a face-to-face meeting with your client. Barclays will let us know when the account has been opened.
  3. In order to receive the cash back, you’ll need to provide us with proof of ID and proof of address (please see FAQ below for accepted documents) as well as your preferred payment method; account credit or cash back to your bank account. You must provide ID and payment method details no later than 45 days after the account opens to be eligible for cash back.
  4. Once a month, Barclays will notify us of how many of your clients have opened a bank account, we will then add credit to your Company Formation MadeSimple account or transfer the money to your bank account.

Why do I need to submit proof of ID and proof of Address?

These are required to comply with anti money-laundering regulations.

What forms of ID are acceptable and how do I submit them?

To submit your proof of ID and proof of address, please attach .jpeg, .png or pdf files in an email and send them to [email protected] with the subject line ‘Proof of ID - professional’. More info

If you have not submitted ID before the first cash back or credit payment is due to be made, our team will send you a reminder email.

Is the bank account available for clients not based in the UK?

Unfortunately no. We can only offer this service to your UK based clients.

Can I meet with Barclays on my client’s behalf?

No, your client must attend the face-to-face meeting with Barclays.

How long does it take to get the cash back?

The whole process from the initial contact with Barclays, the account being opened and Barclays confirming to us that we can issue you with cash back is about 4-6 weeks.
