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.


Your company name

Company ownership

For each shareholder you will need to know the following:

  • name
  • address
  • date of birth
  • job title
  • nationality
  • town of birth
  • telephone number
  • security question – mother’s maiden name or father’s first name

Company Directors

Often the same as the shareholders, you will need to know:

  • name
  • address
  • date of birth
  • job title
  • nationality

Share allocation

  • 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)

Registered office address

  • 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)
