Notice to clients: Companies House has a backlog of orders and, as of 11th June at 9 a.m., is still processing orders received on 7th June.
Our guaranteed same-day service is available, if required, for some packages.


Before Your Start

Processing time

Online formations are usually completed within 24 hours. Submissions made to Companies House after 2.45 pm can result in the formation being completed the next business day. However, suppose your application has not been completed properly, or there are other problems with it. In that case, Companies House will only accept it once the issues have been addressed, and the time taken to complete the formation will be delayed.

Newly formed companies are immediately placed on the Companies House register for public view. To look up your newly formed company, simply log on to and select the free web check service. Search for your company by name or registration number. The register will give details of your company, including its registered office and date of incorporation.

When our systems receive confirmation from Companies House that your company has been formed, they automatically email you its details and documents.

Directors and shareholders

A company can be formed with only 1 subscriber (shareholder) taking only 1 share. The subscriber can be either a company or a natural person.

A company only needs 1 director. That person can also be the sole shareholder. Companies and other corporate entities can also be directors, but there must always be 1 director who is a natural person.

A company no longer needs to appoint a company secretary.
