Company incorporation is the process of forming a new company or legal entity, which can be used to carry out business activities, hold assets, and enter into contracts. The process of incorporation typically involves filing a number of legal documents with Companies House and paying any necessary fees. A limited company has owners (shareholders) and directors, who may or may not be the same people. A company has a formal, legal address, called the registered office.
Incorporating a company can provide a number of benefits, such as limited liability protection for the company's directors and shareholders, the ability to raise capital through the issuance of shares, and the ability to conduct business in the company's name. However, incorporating a company also involves a number of legal and financial obligations, such as filing annual accounts and tax returns, and complying with relevant regulations and laws. Many clients choose to work with us to form their company to ensure that all the correct legal documents are filed correctly from the outset and to ensure ongoing compliance with regulations and laws.
