UK COMPANY NOTES -

LLP's and Guarantee (not for profit) Companies

We can also provide LLP's and companies limited by guarantee for charitable purposes. Please contact us for details of how we can help Non-UK Residents with these types of company.

 

Directors and Secretary for New Companies

They do not have to be based in the UK and can be resident anywhere in the world. However, it is better to have a professional company secretary in the UK who is used to UK regulations and can deal with Companies House and other Government agencies on your behalf. Using our nominee services you can have a secretary for your company in the UK.

A company director or secretary are officers of the company and as such they may be criminally liable for defaults committed by the company, e.g. failure to file in time.

Company Registers

There is a legal requirement to have the registers available for public and/or shareholders inspection. We provide a service to keep the registers at our offices and by arrangement will keep them updated to meet all the legal requirements.

The Registered Office

A company registered in England and Wales must have its registered office within one of these locations. If you do not have a base in the UK we can provide a registered office address for your company. We can offer an address within London or outside of London. It then becomes convenient to keep the company's registers at the registered office.

Legalisation of Documents

For UK company documents to be recognised outside of the UK they must be issued with an Apostille certificate. This certificate verifies the UK documents to be legal and removes the need for further proof of authenticity. We provide the service to obtain an Apostille certificate for any document produced in the UK.

Tax and Accounts

Please note none of our packages include tax or accountancy services.
