What is a "date of incorporation"?


Can anybody tell me what is meant by “date of incorporation” on my company incorporation documents? The document I received from Companies House makes reference to this several times, but I can’t find an explanation of what it actually is. Thanks!



It is the date a company is registered/set up at Companies House; the date it comes into existence.

Your company’s date of incorporation is the date on which your company formation application was approved by Companies House - this date will be stated on your Certificate of Incorporation.
