As an accountant you’re not short on choice when it comes to forming companies for your clients. However, there’s only one company incorporation service accredited by ICAEW; Company Formation MadeSimple. In this article we’re sharing seven reasons why forming and administering your limited companies with ICAEW’s preferred registration agent makes your life… simple. (And there’s more benefits to be had than just the price!).
Still here? Ok, so let’s run through the seven benefits:
1. A variety of formation packages starting from £13.99
As a professional you can pick from three company formation packages. Each package has been tailor made for accountants forming companies on behalf of other people. Regardless of what package you choose, you can expect companies to be formed online in as little as three working hours – pretty quick. As with all our services, there are no hidden costs – we always include any Companies House fees in our onsite pricing.
2. You’re not limited to limited by shares
Whilst limited by share companies are no doubt the most popular company structure that we process, we also provide online registration of limited by guarantee companies (£39.99) and limited liability partnerships (£59.99).
3. It pays to be loyal
For every ten companies you form with our Executive (£19.99) or Professional (£34.99) incorporation packages we’ll give you £20 credit. This can be spent on any Company Formation MadeSimple service; more formations, Confirmation Statements, dissolutions – it’s up to you.
4. Get paid for introducing clients to Barclays
If you refer a client for a Barclays business bank account during the company formation process (which we include as a simple check box in the process, making it really simple for you), we’ll give you £50 cash (or credit, it’s your choice). A simple way to improve those margins even more.
5. Manage your companies via our free ICAEW accredited secretarial software
Our company secretarial software makes administering your companies really simple. You can track due dates (Confirmation Statement and Annual Account), appoint and resign officers, update the registered office and more. In fact, you don’t even need to form companies with us to use the software, all you need is a company number and authentication code – you can then upload companies under your care. What’s more, this nifty software is totally free.
6. File Confirmation Statements the simple way
No need to login to your Companies House account every time you want to file a Confirmation Statement. Our quick and simple Confirmation Statement service (£14) pre-populates all the necessary fields for you, syncing up with the Companies House information that’s currently held on record. It’s just a case of clicking a couple of buttons – and you’re done!
7. You and your clients* are in safe hands
Since 2002 we’ve helped over 600,000 UK companies get started. We pride ourselves on simple formations with standout support and have a 5***** rating on Feefo, with an average score of 4.8 out of 5 – that’s based on 1,758 reviews over the past year. *Having said that, your clients will never even know about us. 50% of companies formed via our system are by professionals forming companies for someone else. So rest assured there are hundreds of accountants using our service too.
