Frequently asked questions

What is the definition of a confirmation statement?

All limited businesses and LLPs must file a confirmation statement with Companies House. It took the place of the annual return on June 30, 2016, and serves the same purpose: to ensure that all corporate information is correct and up to date.

What is the definition of a dormant company?

A dormant company is a new firm that has not begun trading or a company that has not traded during the current financial year, i.e. it has had "no substantial accounting transactions."

What is a substantial accounting transaction, exactly?

A company can be classified as dormant if it has had no significant accounting transactions during the financial year; however, if it has settled an invoice, paid bank charges, bank interest, paid employees, or paid dividends to shareholders, it will lose its dormant status, as these are all examples of significant accounting transactions.

What are Dormant Company Accounts sounds like?

Companies that have been declared dormant must simply file a reduced form of accounts with Companies House. These streamlined accounts are referred to as inactive company accounts, and they offer a significant benefit by removing the statutory burden of filing profit and loss accounts and a director's report.

Dissolved your company £49.99 + VAT, Is there anything else that needs to be paid?

No, the cost of this service includes the filing charge at Companies House.

How long does it take to dissolve a corporation?

A company's closure normally takes 2 to 3 months at Companies House.

How long will it take to alter the name of my company?

Changing a company name on the Companies House registration normally takes 3-4 working days in total. We will send you digital documents to sign through email within 1-2 business days. It will take 1-2 working days for your company name to change with Companies House once you have confirmed that the documents have been signed. On the same day that the company name is changed, we will give you your documents through email.

What is the minimum number of directors that a limited corporation must have?

At least one director is required for every limited corporation. A natural person must be the only director of a limited corporation with just one director.

Are directors and shareholders the same person?

Shareholders are not required to serve on the board of directors. Their function is to administer the firm, thus they are not required to be shareholders. However, current shareholders may decide to offer shares to the directors, which is totally fine and rather usual.

How long does it take to get Full Company Secretary Service up and running?

The initial setup of the service, which involves appointing your new company secretary and generating the first set of statutory registers, normally takes 3 to 5 days.

Transfer of Shares, when can I expect my documents?

After all essential information is submitted, documents will be sent to you through email within 2-3 working days.

I didn't form my company with CompanyFormation365, thus may I get this service?

Yes. We provide this service to all of our customers, regardless of whether or not they have formed a business with us.

What does it mean to have a Certificate of Good Standing?

Annual filings with Businesses House, the UK registrar of firms, are required by law for all limited companies in the UK. Failure to comply with the law might result in penalties; but, if your firm successfully meets all legal filing requirements, it will be in 'good standing' with Companies House.

You can get a Certificate from Companies House to prove your good standing. This successfully demonstrates that your business complies with all legal standards.

Please notice that, as of June 30, 2016, you will no longer be able to order Certificates of Good Standing containing information on shareholders, shareholdings, or statement of capital information due to amendments to the Small Business Enterprise and Employment Act.

What are documents that have been apostilled?

Apostille Certificates are a type of certification that is appended to official documents. Before the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) adds the Apostille Certificate to ensure authenticity, documents are authenticated by a solicitor.

This permits the documents to be used outside of the United Kingdom.

What is the benefit of using a call answering service?

  • Never miss another sales opportunity again.
  • You will save money by not having to hire a full-time receptionist.
  • Allows you to concentrate on your business.
  • It gives you a much larger and more professional appearance.
  • There is no setup price.
  • Even if you only have a mobile phone, you can get a London 020 or regional landline.
  • Even when you're busy, you can rest assured that all calls will be addressed swiftly and properly.

Is it necessary for my business to register for VAT?

When a limited company's taxable turnover for the previous 12 months exceeds £85,000, or is likely to surpass this level in the next 30 days, it must register for VAT.

Private limited companies

The majority of new company formations in the UK are companies limited by shares. This is the standard ‘LTD’ business structure for any company which has been formed with the intention of generating profit for the owners of the business.

It is remarkably popular because it allows the sharing of profits amongst the shareholders whilst also offering restricted financial liability. The shareholders are only responsible for company debts up to the value of the shares they hold in the company. So their personal assets will be protected, should the company encounter any financial difficulties. We offer a selection of company formation packages designed to make setting up a private company as simple and straightforward as possible.
