Frequently asked questions

How long will it take to receive my company documents by post?

Your company documents will usually be dispatched by our team on the same day as your company’s incorporation, and will take 2 days to be delivered to an address in the UK. Time periods for the delivery of documents overseas will vary, depending on the location of the destination.

How much do you charge for mail forwarding?

We forward official registered office and directors’ service address mail free of charge within the UK. For those clients who purchase the business address service, general business correspondence is forwarded at the cost of the Royal Mail postage charge plus a 15% handling fee.

Do I need VAT registration?

A company must register for VAT when its turnover (value of taxable supplies) exceeds the VAT threshold of £82,000. If the turnover does not exceed the threshold, a company can decide to register for VAT on a voluntary basis and reclaim VAT on business expenses it incurs.

How long does VAT registration take?

As soon as your company is incorporated, we will send you a VAT Questionnaire asking for some additional information. On receipt of your completed Questionnaire, we will apply for your VAT registration. HMRC undertake to process at least 70% of all VAT registrations within 10 days, although some can take a lot longer.

How do I renew my address services?

Your address services will be renewed automatically, as long as you maintain current debit or credit card details in your Formations Factory account. You will be notified by email 5 days prior to the renewal date, giving you the option to cancel a service or allow it to be renewed.

What is the legal contracts and notices package?

This is a package we have created to provide new businesses with useful legal contract templates and notices that will save them money in solicitor fees. The bundle includes the following items: Employment contracts and offer letters, health & safety policy statements, sales and service contracts, website notices and T&Cs.
