All of our services are available to residents of the UK and company owners that live outside of the UK.

Company Formation

The UK is a popular location for non UK residents due to the low start up costs and the simplified company registration process. Using our website www.simpleformations.com you can register your limited company in just 2 to 3 hours for as little as £33.34 including all charges and government fees.

We will provide you with all of your legal documents electronically. You can also upgrade to one of packages with printed documents for your convenience.

Registered Office Service

All UK companies are legally required to maintain an effective UK address for their company. This must be a real address and not a PO Box. We provide our address to non UK residents when forming their company as it is likely that you do not have a UK address. Our address can then be used by your company at Companies House and HM Revenue & Customs. We will forward mail from Companies House and HM Revenue & Customs to your address anywhere in the world.

Mailing Address Service

In addition to the registered office we can provide your company with a full business mailing service for all of your company’s letters.

Many of our international customers like to use our address form more than just registered office mail. By upgrading to a business mail service you can ensure that any letters from your customers, suppliers or banks are forwarded to your address outside of the UK.

Apostille Legalisation

Having formed a company you may need to present your company documents to organisations outside of the UK. This is common when opening bank accounts, entering into contracts or business agreements and proving ownership of the company.

The apostille is added to company documents so that they will be accepted when used in an official capacity in another country. We can legalise all company documents. We regularly legalise incorporation documents for international customers. You may also need a certificate of good standing with apostille in some circumstances.

Translation Services

Our translators can translate most company documents to your preferred language in just 24 hours. All UK company documents are written in English. Some international organisations and government bodies may request that you supply translations of your papers.

Filing company documents

It is important to inform Companies House of changes to your company. Address changes, appointments or resignations of directors, changes to share capital, share transfer and other adjustments need to be recorded at Companies House. Our team of advisors can assist with your filing duties.

In addition every company has to file statutory documents each year with Companies House and HM Revenue & Customs. This includes annual returns, tax returns, accounts and other forms depending on the company’s status.

Support from SFS

We have a team of trained advisors on hand to support your company. All advisors are employed by SFS and no calls are outsourced to external
