Why Create A Limited Company – How We Can Help

A limited company formation means you will have complete control of your company. It also gives other businesses and suppliers that you might deal with more confidence in you as a company.

Once your company is registered, it also gives you protection over your company name. This is very important for branding, especially if you are already established in your area or on social media.

Another important benefit is that your personal assets won’t be at risk should the company face difficult times. Shareholders in limited companies are not held personally liable for the debts accrued by the company.

We can help you manage the finances and leave you to concentrate on other aspects of the company.

Do I Need A Registered Office Address?

It is a requirement that you provide an office address when setting up a limited company as all written communications will be sent there. The address you use for your company is known as your service address.

A service address is where you will receive official government mail and correspondence, including your company documents.

You can choose a third party to handle your mail. However, you must ensure the service includes handling your mail at this address.

The address must be a physical address in the UK, you can use a PO Box, but it must include a physical address and postcode. The address must also be in the same country that your business is registered in.

Do I Need A Business Bank Account?

Because limited companies are separate entities from you, you would have to separate your finances, making it a requirement that you have a business bank account when registering a limited company.

By speaking with your bank, they will advise you further on what options are available. Some banks offer free business banking, so shopping around for the best deals is advisable. It is worth noting that a free business bank account is not guaranteed to offer the best service, so always check the terms and conditions.
