The majority of companies are registered using model articles. Model articles of association set out how your company is managed and provide basic rules for the company officers. They do not state what the company will do or include any objects that the company must work towards.
This allows your company to operate as freely as possible. If you were to clearly state specific objects or business activities for your company you may find that this limits your business. Narrow business objectives may prevent future development unless further amendments are made to your company documentation.
Company Directors now inform Companies House of their business activities by selecting a Standard Industry Classification (SIC). This is done while forming the company and when filing the Confirmation Statement each year.
There are hundreds of SIC codes covering a wide range of business activities. When registering a company on our website, you can simply type your business activity and we will provide you with suitable suggestions.
