Frequently asked questions
Why should I buy the Digital Package?
It offers excellent value for those setting up a company on a budget and want to get their business up and running.
This package provides online company registration with Companies House and a full set of digital company documents.
Can I reserve my company name without forming a company?
No. You need to register a limited company using your desired company name to reserve the name and stop anyone else from using it.
Companies House will not allow anyone else to set up a company with a name that is ‘the same as’ or ‘too similar’ to an existing company name.
Are there any hidden costs?
The price you see quoted above is exactly the price you will pay.
Companies House charges a £12.00 registration fee for the formation of a new company, and we have included this cost in our package price.
All of the items included are a one-off payment, with no need for renewal.
What is a company limited by shares?
A company limited by shares is a legal entity which exists separately from its owners. A limited company is managed by directors and owned by shareholders.
The owners’ financial liability is limited to the value of the shares they own in the company – hence the phrase ‘limited by shares’.
What do I need to form a company?
Incorporating a limited company online is simple. No documents or signatures are required; however, you will need the following:
- One director and one shareholder (the same person can assume both positions).
- A registered office address.
- At least one share issued.

Do I need to supply proof of ID?
All company formation agents, including ourselves, have a legal requirement to check Proof of ID and Address.
Do not worry - over 90% of our customers successfully pass our digital ID checks, without having to do anything.
If you aren’t eligible for a digital ID check, or your digital ID check fails, don’t worry - 99% of customers are able to provide their ID via our Credas App using their smartphone. See here for more information.
