Can I form a company in Scotland?

Duport register companies with both Companies House Cardiff (for UK Ltd companies registered in either England or Wales), and Companies House Edinburgh (for UK Ltd companies registered in Scotland). Although subject to essentially the same benefits and restrictions as UK Ltd companies, there are slight differences in the formation process.

To register your company in Scotland you must be able to provide an address in Scotland to act as your company’s registered office. You must also ensure that all of your intended company directors are over the age of 16.

Please note that Duport does provide a registered office service, but this is only available for companies wishing to be registered in England & Wales and is not appropriate for companies wishing to register with Companies House in Edinburgh.
