What documents do I need to sign when registering a limited company?


We’re trying to get a limited company up and running as soon as possible. Can anyone advise me which documents we will need to sign in order to get things moving?



You only need to sign documents if you use Companies House’ postal application form, but this is the least efficient way to set up a company because it takes about 10 days to process.

It’s quicker and easier to register a company online through a company formation agent because there is no need to sign any paperwork or post anything - you fill out a short application form online, authorise the incorporation by creating a unique digital ‘signature’ with a combination of personal details, and then send the application electronically to Companies House.

Most online applications are approved within 3 hours and you receive digital copies of your incorporation documents immediately.
