Company Formation

What is Company Formation?

Company formation is the process of incorporating (registering) a business in the form of a limited company. When a company is registered, it becomes a separate legal entity; a ‘person’ that is completely distinct from its owners and responsible for its own finances, assets, and liabilities.

What is a Company Formation Agent?

The core service of company formation agents is, as the name suggests, to incorporate companies. This essentially covers the successful creation and registration of a new company with Companies House, so that a new business can get on its feet and begin trading. As well as the incorporation of standard limited companies (i.e. those with shares), agents will normally be able to also form companies limited by guarantee (e.g., non-profit organisations) and limited liability partnerships (LLPs).

As well as the core service of streamlining incorporation, formation agents often provide a range of products and services designed to meet the needs of startups and new business ventures, including:

  • Guidance
  • Information
  • Company secretarial support
  • Registered office address
  • Business bank account

limited liability company LLC

What is Limited Liability Company?

How to set up a Limited Liability Company? A Limited liability company (LLC) is a business structure that provides its owners with limited liability. A limited liability company, also known as an LLC, is a business structure that is a hybrid of a corporation and a partnership. A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a type of business structure that combines the tax advantages of sole proprietorships and partnerships with the limited liability afforded by companies. The Limited Liability Company (“LLC”) has several advantages. One advantage is that it is a separate legal business entity with its own tax identification number. 

Numerous countries recognize the Limited Liability Company as a business structure (LLC). The Limited Liability Company LLC arose from the desire of business owners to adopt a business structure that would allow them to operate like a traditional partnership. Pass-through taxes, in which Limited Liability Company LLC income and losses are transferred to each member’s personal tax return, allows for greater tax flexibility. One of the numerous advantages of a Limited Liability Company (LLC) is that it shields your assets from corporate debt.

 Set up a Limited Liability Company (LLC) to increase the legitimacy of your company. A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is an unique type of business structure. You can form an LLC with or without partners to protect yourself from personal liability for company debts and other obligations. Because the Limited Liability Company LLC is a relatively new legal form for businesses, the federal and state governments are still considering ways to tighten regulations governing them. Regrettably, some investment promoters use Limited Liability Company (LLC) to bypass securities laws. Accounting for a Limited Liability Company is similar to accounting for a partnership or sole proprietorship, with a few key differences. Forming a limited liability company is simpler, faster, and less expensive than incorporating. The limited liability company is a relatively new type of organization, but it is getting momentum. Many businesses nowadays choose a limited liability company as their business structure.
