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?

Who will own the company?

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

Who are the directors?

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

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

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)

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)
