How to Form a UK Company

Brought to you by: http://www.madesimplegroup.com/. Mathew looks at how to start a business online at http://www.companiesmadesimple.com/. Script: Starting a UK limited company is simple. Very often the only hurdle that gets in the way is jargon; ‘company-speak’ that formation agents, accountants and Companies House (the UK’s registrar of companies - we’re busting jargon already!) continually drop onto websites and into conversations. In this, our latest StartUp TV, we look at exactly how simple it is is to form a UK company limited by shares … don’t worry, we explain what that means too! A private company limited by shares is a very popular company structure. This is for two main reasons: Tax Benefits Limited Liability - this means, if it all goes wrong, the owners do not have to pay out of their own pockets, their liability is limited to the amount of shares they own, hence company limited by shares Unique Company Name The Company Formation MadeSimple http://www.companiesmadesimple.com/ homepage has a ‘company name availability’ search box. Simply enter your proposed company name and we’ll immediately let you know if your name is available. The company name must be unique, can not be too similar to another company and should also not contain any ‘sensitive words or expressions’. These are a collection of words that Companies House will not allow you to use without permission from a particular body. For example, you can’t use the word ‘Dental’ in a company name without permission from The General Dental Council. See here for a full list of these sensitive words and expressions. Please note, your company name must end in Limited or Ltd (you can choose which version you prefer). Company Formation Packages The next step is to select your package. We offer five different packages: Basic (£16.99 plus VAT) Printed (£29.99 plus VAT) Privacy (£49.99 plus VAT) Comprehensive (£89.99 plus VAT) Ultimate (£159.99 plus VAT) It’s worth mentioning that the above prices all include the £13 Companies House filing fee - it’s for this reason that when you add VAT to the prices, the figure appears to not quite match up. This is simply because we’re removing the £13 fee before adding the VAT. The Registered Office Now the first step in the actual company formation process is to add a registered office address. This is the official address for the company and where Companies House and Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will send all company documentation. Important information about the registered office: It is on the public register (and so easy for anyone to find) It must be in the UK Directors (more on these in the next step) must be ‘contactable’ from the address - this means if mail is sent to the address, it must be forwarded on Permission from the property owner should be granted before using an address as the registered office, so whilst it’s fine to use a residential address (we point you back to the public register note), you must have permission from the landlord Directors Now you need to appoint at least one director. Directors are tasked with the running of the company. To appoint a director you need the following information: Full name Date of birth Occupation Service address - similar to the registered office, this is the official address for the director and is on the public register Residential address - this must be the actual residential address but it is not on the public register (unless you use a residential address as the service address) MadeSimple offers business products and services to start-up companies and small businesses.

How long should I give before I start operating as a business ? Can I start operating two weeks into my its company before I register my company ?

Hi there! As soon as you have your company you should be ready to trade. Some people like to make sure their bank account is set up first, and that they have their UTR number (sent by HMRC 2-3 weeks after incorporation) so they can register for VAT. But it's really entirely up to you! We hope this helps! ^Lauren

Hi, Mathew. Thank you for the video. I have a doubt, if I become a youtuber, would I need to form a uk company with the name of my channel?
MadeSimple (9 months ago)
No worries! And you too! :)
CRISTINA Islands (9 months ago)
Thank you for such a quick response ;D I think I've understood now. Have an amazing day!

Hi Cristina No you wouldn't necessarily need to have the name of your company aligned with the name of your YouTube channel - that would be entirely up to you. Your company name would be legally binding, but you can call your YouTube channel your company name or otherwise. And if you're trading via a company name you can give out your actual company name when working with other people. I hope this helps!

It is best practice to have all records pertaining to your company in writing, so yes.

Are you experiencing failure in trading BINARY OPTION?Are you new in the system? Do you know that you can make a minimum profit of over $450 per day if you invest with a minimum of $500 through the right source? Do you need an expert that will manage your account and be guaranteed of 80% profit (I keep 2% and payout !!! And I repeat !!! Payout !!! (Payout can be a huge problem when you invest with wrong account manager). I'm a regulation I mean I'm under supervision by bodies that take strick action when a client begins to complain!!! Is your current manager under supervision if No!!! Then get yourself a new account manager !!! There's is no gain your money!!! To be for warn is to be for armed!!! Minimum investment is$300 contact me here on Facebook for details or via email [email protected]

First piece of advice is to NEVER put your contact details - especially your mobile number - on the Internet. You have failed the common sense test.
