Information required to form a company

You will require the following details for your new company formation:

1. Registered Office

This is the official address of your company and it must be a full postal address in the country in which your company is incorporated. You cannot use a PO Box Number.

Companies House and HMRC will use this address to deliver all statutory company mail and it will be displayed on public record.

2. Business Activity

You require providing Companies House with your new company's business activity. This is done by choosing a SIC code (Standard Industrial Classification code) which describes and classifies business activities.

Our online company formation process includes a SIC code search facility, however, you may wish to find your company's SIC code prior to starting your order, by having a look at the SIC code list.
