Popular FAQs

Still have questions? Here are the answers to some of the most common questions people ask about Duport.

Company registration is the process you need to go through to officially set up a business. For Limited Companies, Non-Profits, LLPs and Charities, this is done through Companies House.

For Sole Traders, registration is done through HMRC.

The process is slightly different based on your structure, but Duport have a comprehensive service for each business type, so you can be confident your registration goes smoothly.

The best business structure depends on your own unique circumstances, and can change depending on a huge number of things, from how many people will be running the business, to whether you’ll be taking a salary.

Just answer a few easy questions, and we can help you decide which business structure is going to be right for you - as well as the best package of services to suit your needs.
