Why would I use a formation agent to incorporate a company limited by guarantee?


Hey, I’m forming a limited by guarantee company and a mate has recommended I use a company formation agent to do it, rather than go directly through Companies House. Are there any particular reasons why I might be better off using a formation agent rather than doing this myself? Thanks.



Formation agents provide the quickest and simplest company registration services because the whole process is carried out online. This allows Companies House to approve applications in a few hours, compared to 2-10 days for their own online and postal incorporation services.

Most agents charge a reasonable fee for their services, many of which are comparable to, or cheaper than, the fees charged by Companies House. You still have to complete an application form but it only takes a few minutes because it’s very straightforward.
