Setting up a limited company is one of the most crucial steps you’ve got to take when starting a new business. Company formation offers you and your business a range of important legal protections, and it effectively cements the foundations of your success. That’s why we encourage all aspiring business owners in the UK and overseas to take company formation extremely seriously, and never leave anything to chance.
We know there are a lot of UK company formation agents out there – but when it comes to customer service, transparency and reliability, a lot of them tend to fall flat.
Hidden costs, confusing jargon and impersonal service can be barriers when you’re trying to set up a new company, and sometimes it can be difficult navigating through the UK’s sea of service providers to find a bespoke solution that works for you and your business.
We founded 1st Formations to remove those barriers and do our best to help business owners across the globe discover their ambition and transform their business dreams into a reality.
So, how are we doing? Just check out our reviews.
This month, 1st Formations reached a landmark 13,000 reviews on the industry leading independent review site Trustpilot. We’ve earned an overall five-star rating from our verified customers, with 98% giving us positive reviews, 89% calling our service ‘excellent’ and 0% of customers reporting poor service.
That record has landed us with a TrustScore of 4.9 out of a possible 5.0, and makes us the Nr.1 ranked business in the UK in Trustpilot’s Business & IT Consulting category. 1st Formations has also been ranked the Nr.1 company in the UK for Licence and Documentation.
That’s a pretty big deal for us, because Trustpilot is one of the globe’s most powerful and most reliable consumer review platforms. The site is home to more than 45m reviews of more than 228,000 businesses – earning Trustpilot a coveted spot on Alexa’s top 1% of websites in the entire world.
We owe our customers a huge thank you for helping us to secure so many excellent reviews on Trustpilot – and we promise we won’t let it go to our heads. That’s why 1st Formations is working harder than ever to listen to our customers, improve our services and bring further innovation to the company formation sector to provide the UK with the best and most professional business services available.
