Formation of Limited Company

Information needed to register a company 

To register your company we need information from you about the company and its directors, shareholders and company secretary (optional).

  1. The full company name
  2. Registered office (must be in the UK.)
  3. The company's authorised share capital.
  4. Details of each of the directors, the company secretary (if required) and shareholders

The company must have at least one director. The personal information for the officials required is: 

- Full name 
- Residential address (including postcode) 
- Date of birth 
- Nationality 
- Occupation

Self employed, PAYE, VAT Registration 

Register as Sole trader 

In order for us to register you as Sole trader with HMRC, you must have the following information ready:

- Name
- Address
- National Insurance Number
- Date of birth
- Contact telephone number
- Contact email address
- The date your self-employment commenced
- The nature of your business
- Business address 

If you do not register within the first three months of self-employment, you may have to pay an penalty. 

PAYE Registration 

This is the process of signing up with the Inland Revenue. The company then accounts for income tax and national insurance on its employees’ salaries, submitting PAYE Returns and payments on a regular basis. You need to register as an employer once you take someone on. You need to register PAYE if: 

- you're paying them at or above the PAYE threshold 
- you're paying them at or above the National Insurance lower earnings level 
- you're providing them with employee benefits

Business Plans/Due Diligence

Due Diligence and Budgeting 

When buying a business you want to scrutinize your goods before you pay your money, which is perfectly reasonable in any acquisition or merger. In essence, the buyer of a business is looking for reasons not to invest in the company. 

Due diligence involves looking closely at all the company's records: statutory financial statements, internal process controls, management accounts, budgets, analyses and projections/forecasts, contracts with employees, suppliers, customers and others, insurance policies... and assembling the jigsaw. 

Strategic Planning 

Everyone knows that a successful business must plan ahead; but all too often the pressures of keeping the business going on a daily basis mean that strategic planning is not given the attention it needs. The result can be rushed judgments, over- or under-capacity, or missed opportunities. 

Every business owner needs a planning adviser who has the time and space to take the long view and advice on appropriate courses of action. Contact us today for a planning review. 

Corporate Finance 

Whether yours is a new or a mature business, ensuring that you have the necessary finance is essential for achieving your objectives. 
We can help you: 

  • Conduct a feasibility study of your projects
  • Decide on the most suitable sources of finance - personal capital, bank overdraft, long-term commercial loans and mortgages, national and regional agencies
  • Prepare the necessary business plan and forecasts.
