In addition, the UK does not impose minimum capital requirements although it is recommended to inject at least GBP 100 into a company.
Requirements for registration of company in the U.K are:
Company Name: You need to make sure that your desired company name is available or different from an existing name.
Director: Minimum one director is required for company formation. However, there is no limit of directors you can appoint.
Shareholder: Minimum one shareholder is required for company formation. However, there is no limit of shareholders you can appoint.
Registered Address: This address must be located in the U.K and will appear on the public register. All the statutory mails from Companies House and HMRC will be sent to the registered office address.
Director Service Address: Each director, secretary and PSC must provide a service address to Companies House.
Filing and Reporting: Companies are legally required to submit annual accounts and a Confirmation Statement (also called Annual Return) every year.
Corporation Tax: The company must be registered with HMRC when it begins trading.
Companies as they trade their way through the market to growth and sustainability come across many legal and moral obligations to fulfill such as the company’s house confirmation statement which should be filed once a year.
What is a confirmation statement and why is it important?
Operating or dormant companies in the U.K. need to submit a confirmation statement to companies’ houses once a year.
The statement includes important information related to the organization and is meant to keep the company’s official public records updated.
A confirmation statement consists of a set of information to be reported to the Companies House. The information involves a company’s details of shareholders and respective shareholdings.
