How soon can my limited by guarantee company start trading after formation?


Hello, I have just applied to set up a limited by guarantee company through a company formation agent online. That’s my application away, but I have not heard back yet. Now, I’m just wondering how soon I will be able to start trading once my application is approved. Does anyone know?



You should hear back within a few hours. If your application is successful, you can start trading immediately! Be sure to register with HMRC for business taxes as soon as possible after you start trading.

Before you start trading, you must make sure that your website (if you have one) and official company stationery states your full company name and registration number. You will find this information on the certificate of incorporation you receive from Companies House.
