What is a Limited by Shares Company? 


A company limited by shares is a legal entity which exists separately from its owners. A limited company is managed by directors and owned by shareholders.

The owners’ financial liability is limited to the value of the shares they own in the company – hence the phrase ‘limited by shares’.


Requirements 

  • A Limited company must file annual tax returns (‘corporation’ tax returns) with HM Revenue and Customs.
  • It must also file a Confirmation Statement to Companies House, which is a snapshot of general information about the company.


Why Our Companies Are Better


Other formation agents incorporate companies with an “agent director” – an employee of the formation agent becomes the Founding Director for the new company, then resigns and transfers the shares to the customer. This frequently leads to confusion, and in the worst cases can cause damaging delays in financial transactions in the formative period for the company. At Formations House, the company is established with you, as our customer, as the Founding Director and shareholder from the outset. The Companies House registry will show you as owning the company from the outset, avoiding the possibility of these delays, and further confirming your company’s integrity.


Getting Started

Incorporating a company with Formations House could not be simpler. To get started, we require the proposed name of your company and the address where the company will be registered . In addition, we will require the personal details of the director(s), and if applicable the secretary, to be registered with the company. If the newly incorporated company is to be a subsidiary of another business entity, we will require the company name(s) and registration number(s) of these businesses involved. Finally, we will need confirmation of the share structure you wish to implement with your new company.
