How do you incorporate a small business?
Before you get started, you will need to decide on the following:
- A business name that your company will operate under officially
- An address to put on record for your business
- The type of corporation e.g. LTD company or PLC
- Company directors and shares
As a limited company, you will need to register your business through Companies House. This means filling in a lot of paperwork when no doubt you’d rather be focusing on things like profits and launch days.
You will need to be ready to supply all the above information via the following official pieces of paperwork to Companies House:
- Form 10 - Names, addresses of directors and the limited company address
- Form 12 - A statement that the limited company complies with the Companies Act
- Articles of Association - Details of the directors’ powers and shareholders’ rights
- Memorandum of Association - Limited company name, location and business type
Why hire an accountant for small business to incorporate your company?
Dealing with all that paperwork, Companies House and HMRC can be time-consuming and a bit of a hassle. The last thing you want is to be unsure and submit incorrect paperwork and then have to get in touch to correct it - especially considering that you have to pay for company incorporation.
If you’re new to the business world or would rather not have to go through all that hassle yourself, enlisting the help of an expert accountant for small businesses is your best bet. We’d always recommend getting a professional who will cover your back and keep everything above board.
