UK Company Formation

UK Company Formation for Non Residents

Forming a company in the UK is popular for many business owners living outside the UK. In the UK, company registration is simple and only costs a few pounds.

The low start up costs and simple incorporation process makes the UK a popular location for many international customers looking to start a new business.

The online company registration process allows you to register your UK business and receive your company number in a matter of hours.

It is a legal requirement for all UK companies to provide a UK registered office address. We are unable to assist with registering UK companies or providing address services to Non-UK clients due to identification regulations.

What information is required?

  • A company name that is not already in use in the UK

  • A UK registered office

  • One company director that is at least 16 years old

  • One company shareholder – this can be the director

Does a non-UK resident director affect the company formation process?

In relation to the registration of the company there are no differences. The process is exactly the same for all company directors regardless of where they live. However, if you do not have an address within the UK to use as your ‘official registered address’ for the company then you will need to use a registered office service which we can provide for you. You simply select our address during the registration process.
