When will I receive my company formation documents?



I have just completed the online application for a new limited company in Scotland. I used a company formation agent, and they sent me a confirmation email to say that my application has been sent through to Companies House. Now, I am just wondering how long it will take to receive my formation documents. Assuming my application is successful, does anyone know when I will receive these documents?





Depending on the number of applications being processed by Companies House, your application should be approved in about 3 hours. Your agent will send you an email as soon as this happens. You will receive your formation documents at the same time - they will be attached to the email.

If your registration package includes hard copies of your incorporation documents, or you placed an additional order for paper copies, your agent will post these out to your registered office address within a day of two of company formation.
