How long does company registration take?

0

Hello! I am trying to get my new company trading in a hurry, but I haven’t submitted an application to Companies House yet. I’m trying to get this done as quickly as possible, as I’ve already had orders for products in but don’t want to get in trouble with the taxman. Does anybody know how long it takes to incorporate a new limited company?

Make sure you purchase a same-day incorporation service from a company formation agent. It costs around £25 but it puts your company application in front of the review queue at Companies House.

You can register a company in a few hours if you use a company formation agent, rather than going directly through Companies House.

  1. Choose a company name
  2. Spend 5-10 minutes completing an online application form
  3. Submit it electronically to Companies House for review
  4. It should be processed and approved within 3 working hours (Mon-Fri, 9-5)
  5. You receive a confirmation email with your incorporation documents attached
  6. Your company is ready to trade

If it’s a bit later in the day when you finish the application, but still before 3pm, ask your formation agent if they provide a guaranteed same-day service. It will cost a bit extra but this will ensure your company is registered today, rather than tomorrow.
