Frequently Asked Questions

Can you incorporate a new company for me?

Yes, we support entrepreneurs at every stage of the business lifecycle, including incorporation. If you wish, you can use our offices at 73 Cornhill as your registered office address for a small annual fee. Once the company is incorporated, we can continue to look after it for you and take care of all of your regular Companies House filings.

I need someone to look after my existing companies but don’t have any existing records that I can hand over – can you help?

Absolutely, we can access your company’s details from Companies House and onboard them into our software. We will then liaise with you to ensure all details are correct. If your Companies House e-filing code has been lost, we can apply for a new code on your behalf. This will allow us to make filings for you electronically going forward.

If you are looking after the statutory work for my company, what does your work include?

Our annual fee includes the upkeep of your company records (including PSC registers) and the preparation and filing of your CS01 Confirmation Statement. It also covers annual maintenance, handling the appointment and resignations of directors and company secretaries, updating records with Companies House, changes of address and a certain number of share transfers per year. We also keep compliance diaries for our company secretarial clients, meaning that we keep a close track of approaching filing dates and deadlines for you.

My overseas company is opening an office in the UK – is there anything I need to do to register it in the UK?

We can provide advice on whether you need to register your overseas company as having a UK establishment. We can then deal with the registration at Companies House and any ongoing filing requirements. Please contact us for further details.

Do you deal with flat management companies?

Yes, we work closely with a number of flat management companies and provide a full range of services, including the transfer of shares following a change of ownership. Please contact us for a quote for annual fees as this will be dependent on the number of flats involved.
