Built by accountants
just for you

There are huge benefits to forming a limited company,
here’s just a few of them…

Limited companies currently pay 19% Corporation Tax on profits. Sole traders pay 20-45% Income Tax on profits, giving you the opportunity to keep more of your profits, reduce income tax and national insurance contributions.
Minimise personal
One great benefit of forming a limited company is it offers limited liability protection. To put it simply, if your company runs into trouble, your personal assets will be secure.
Being a limited company can add credibility to your business. Some industries will only engage with limited companies, because of the level of risk in contracts available.
It’s possible to raise capital in a limited company by selling shares in the business. Generally limited companies also have access to more lending opportunities than sole traders.
Companies provide the opportunity to invest pre-tax trading income in a company pension scheme, as opposed to investing withdrawn income in a personal pension after the deduction of tax.
Separate legal
A limited company is a legal ‘person’, separate from its owners and directors. Therefore, the company is liable for debts and liabilities and the business would be bankrupt, not its owners should it fail.

Got questions?

To set up a limited company you need to register with Companies House. This is known as 'incorporation'. dns can take care of all the formalities and help you register your company with Companies House without any hassle.

You will need the following details for every person who is to be appointed as a director or Shareholder of the company to place your UK limited company formation order request:

  • Full name (including middle names - not initials)
  • Residential address including postal code
  • Date of Birth
  • Nationality
  • Business Occupation
  • Passport or national identity card number*
  • Telephone number*
  • Town of birth*
    • *These details are required to create an electronic signature for each person and contribute towards our Anti-Money Laundering checks. This information is kept confidential, and only three digits or characters of each of these are submitted to Companies House as part of the electronic signature.

In general, you can use any company name. The name must end with the word 'Limited' or its abbreviation 'ltd'. But there are rules on what it can and can't include.

First and foremost, your company name should be unique and should not be 'similar' or 'same as' an already registered company. To check this, you can search the Companies House register

Your name also can't:

  • Contain a 'sensitive' word or expression
  • Suggest a connection with government or local authorities
  • Be offensive

A company can have any number of shareholders. There must be at least one shareholder, as a company cannot exist without a share capital. There is no limit to the number of shares that can be held by an individual.

After registering your company with Companies House, you will receive the following documents: Memorandum of Association

  • Statement of Capital
  • Articles of Association
