April 2010 witnessed 30,353 company registrations in England and Wales and 1,793 in Scotland. The simple, straightforward laws, the political stability and the varied opportunities offered by the UK makes the country a company formation hub. Companies House, the authority that validates all company registration applications, offers online as well as offline company registration facilities. If you are looking forward to opening your company within a single day, online registration is the best option.

Company Registration: Why Prefer the Electronic Procedure?

Online company registration is quick and cost-effective. This, perhaps, is the most important reason why people prefer the online option. Online registration facilitates:

Speedy company formation : The Internet personifies speed! All the procedures can be fulfilled online without moving a step away from home. To register a company in the UK, you will have to fill the Memorandum and Articles of Association, Form 10 and 12. If done online, Form 10 can be skipped.

Also, it is crucial to ensure that the company name does not resemble any other companies. You can check this in the online 'WebCHeck' search service.

Less expense : The registration fee via post is 20 and the 'same-day' service charges are 50. On the other hand, software filing can be completed at just 15 and same-day service at 30.

Company Registration: Look for Agents Online

The entire procedure can be completed easily with the help of online agents. The Internet helps you save the time and effort that would have otherwise been spent on searching for agents personally and submitting the right papers. A reputed online consulting agency will handhold clients through the registration process. This makes completing the procedures and submitting the documents very easy.

An online agency may even offer packages, such as:

  • Bronze pack: At 17.99, this package offers an electronic certificate of incorporation and copy of the Memorandum and Articles of Association.
  • Silver pack: This pack includes a printed certificate of incorporation and an electronic copy of the Memorandum and Articles. Additionally, it offers a registered office at a prestigious address in London. This is available at 53.99.
  • Gold pack: At 93.99, this package comprises all the facilities of the previous two packs as well as a Maintenance of Statutory Books.

All these three packages are available at CompanyFormations247.co.uk. This is one of the oldest and best agencies in the UK, known for its customer services and reasonable prices.
