Why Register a Limited Company?


A limited company (LC) is the most popular type of company formation in the UK. It is a business structure where the directors or shareholders have their liability limited to the contributions which they have made or invested in the company. A limited company can be formed by anyone going into business to make a profit. All details are entered easily online and there is no requirement for original signatures.


Limited Company Explained


  • A Limited Company is the most popular incorporation in the UK because of its simple and flexible business structure.
  • This type of company is required to have a shareholder and director-the shareholders might also be known as the owners of the company.
  • A limited company has shareholders who are allocated shares.
  • A confirmation statement and accounts must be filed each year.
  • All shares within a Limited Company must be allocated to the Shareholders.
  • If one member of the company should pull out of the company, the company can still function unlike other types of companies.
  • The company name is protected after registration. No other company is legally permitted to trade under the same company name in the UK.


Officers in the Company


You can register a Limited Company with just one person acting as the director and shareholder of the company. The directors are responsible for the day to day running of the company. The extent of their responsibilities are outlined in the Articles of Association.


You are able to appoint corporate officers to a Limited Company, however; you cannot just have corporate officers, an individual director must also be appointed.


You are able to appoint a secretary to a Limited Company, although a secretary is no longer a requirement.


Anticipated Timeframe


Once all company information has been submitted to the company registrar, a Limited Company formation usually takes within 3 to 24 hours (dependent on the company registrar) and is then ready to trade. Fun fact: we have, on one occasion, previously incorporated a company in a record time of just 6 minutes.
