what information do I need to register a Limited company?

So you know you want to form a Limited company...but wait. There are a few pieces of information you will need to form your company.

what will my company be called?
Oh No! Somebody else has already registered the name I want
who will own the company?
  • For each shareholder you will need to know the following:
    -name
    -address
    -date of birth
    -eye colour
    -occupation
    -town of birth
    -nationality
I need to find out the eye colour of my business partner
who are the directors?
  • Often the same as the shareholders, you will need to know:
    -name
    -address
    -date of birth
    -eye colour
    -occupation
    -town of birth
    -nationality
I have all the information I need to get started
how many shares?
  • We typically advise you register the minimum number of shares to provide you with the shareholding you want
  • If two people want to own half the company each, allocate 2 shares (1 each)
  • If three people want to own an equal share, allocate 3 shares
  • If 1 person wants to own 90% to another with 10% , allocate 10 shares (and share them 9:1)
I will allocate 3 shares. 2 for me and 1 for my partner
registered office
  • Your company must have an official address
  • This is not necessarily where you will do business
  • Official documentation will be sent to this address and it will be assumed you have received it
  • If you rent a home you may need to check your lease to see if this is permitted
  • You may use the registered address of your formation agent (us) or accountant (by agreement)
I will use my home address for my registered office
