Company Formation in Nottingham
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:
- Company secretarial support
- Registered office address
- Business bank account
Benefits of Company Formation Services
What are the Benefits of Company Formation Services?
Fast Turnaround And Low Cost
A new company can often be incorporated by an agent on the same working day, in a matter of hours. Because listed formations agents have their systems set up and tested with Companies House, this minimises any delays and ensures rapid incorporation.
Efficiency And Simplicity
Setting up a company through a formation agent generally makes the process of incorporation more straightforward. This is because everything has been optimised to simplify the process for customers, making the online application extremely user friendly and cutting out any unnecessary jargon.
Help Avoid Rejection
As well as providing assistance with any questions relating to the completion of incorporation applications, company formation agents are also able to review the submitted application. This vital review procedure helps reduce the possibility of rejection due to minor discrepancies and mistakes.
Agents Handle Any Type of Business Set-up
A wider range of company structures can normally be incorporated online via a company formation agent: Private companies limited by shares, Private companies limited by guarantee, Limited liability partnerships (LLP)
Protect Your Application
Your company formation agent will meticulously review the details you have provided by checking spelling mistakes, missing information, irregularities, and any other potential application hindrance. Companies House may reject erroneous applications.
A Simple Online Application
If you register a company by yourself then you will have to fill out Companies House form IN01. This is quite an extensive form. However, business owners who use company formations agents have to fill out a simple online application form that takes a mere few minutes.
