Who do I need to pay to form my company?


I’m trying to incorporate a company online. Does anyone know who I have to pay in order to make this happen? It appears that you create a company using Companies House, but the process can be done through an online agent. Do you know whether I pay Companies House or the agent for a formation?



The reason you have to pay a fee to set up a company is because you are incorporating a business as a legal individual. You will also receive a set of incorporation documents when your company is legally registered.

The company formation fee paid to Companies House - either directly or through an agent - covers the setup and administrative costs of registration and the disclosure of your company details on public record.
