Company Formation & Registration

Why set up a limited company?

  • A limited company is a separate legal entity and as such, legally, it’s responsible for its own actions. The finances of private limited companies are entirely separate from those of its owner(s).
  • Providing you don’t trade recklessly or fraudulently, as a director of a limited company your risk of loss is restricted to money you’ve invested in the company.
  • To an extent, being a private limited company might make you more credible to potential customers, partners or investors
  • A large number of tax benefits vs. a sole trader


To set up the Company, you need

  • a suitable Company name (one that has not already been taken),
  • give some basic information,
  • Names of at least one director
  • payment; and
  • shareholder details
  • The Company needs to have a registered office address
  • The Company needs to file annual accounts and annual returns – see Ltd Co/Contractor services
  • Following a change in legislation, there is no longer a need for a company secretary
  • You will need a company bank account
