Company Registration


The phrase company registration in the UK refers to the set-up of limited liability companies. The term is also known as company formation or set-up; In most situations the phrases are generally used interchangeably and refer essentially to the same methodology.

Registration Procedures for UK Limited Companies

In order to have a legally recognised company in the UK there is a specific registration procedure which must be adhered to and completed. That process is laid down, regulated and enforced by Companies House whose main centre is in Cardiff, Wales.

Companies House itself, receives its instructions essentially from the various acts of parliaments which are then embodied within its code of practice.

Company Registration Requirements

UK company registration requirements as they currently stand require at least one director, a secretary and one subscriber (shareholder) holding at least one share. The submission of memorandum and articles of association together with a declarant's signature is required before the application will be passed as complete.

For those wishing to start a business in the UK, company registration is one of several options currently available to them.

Depending on their intended business, their personal style and to a certain extent, their view of their future enterprise activities, they may wish to start an enterprise using a different type of business entity, for example, as a sole trader or as a partnership. In such cases, they could opt to register as a company at later stage of their development.
