How do I register a company in Northern Ireland?


Greetings all

I would very much like to set up a company in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Could one of you please tell me how to do this? I owned a company once before in Hungary, but I moved to the UK last year. Now, I would like to start a new company here in Northern Ireland.

All help welcome

If you wish to register a limited company in Northern Ireland, you must complete an application form for Companies House. You can do this online through a company formation agent or Companies House WebFiling service.

When you fill out the online application, select ‘Northern Ireland’ as your desired country of incorporation and provide a registered office address in the same country. Your new company will then be registered with Companies House in Belfast.
