Does Companies House operate in Scotland?



I need to form a limited company in Cumbernauld. Companies House seems to be a very English affair, though. Do they even operate in Scotland, or do they have some sort of Scottish branch to work with?

Thank you




Yes, Companies House operates in Scotland, England and Wales, and Northern Ireland. The Scottish registrar of companies is situated in Edinburgh. They are responsible for incorporating, monitoring and dissolving all limited companies and LLPs in Scotland.

If you wish to set up a company in Scotland, you will have to complete an application form and choose a Scottish address as your registered office.

You can apply to register a company online or by post using Companies House form IN01, or you can go through an online company formation agent. The latter option is usually the quickest and cheapest way to incorporate a company.
