The Non-Resident Company Formation FAQs

Can a Non-UK resident form a company in the UK?


There is no restriction on nationality or location of either the directors or shareholders when forming  a Limited Company in the UK. A non-resident person can be the director of a UK Limited company a non-resident person can also be a shareholder of a UK Limited company. A person can also be both.

What are the basic legal requirements to form a Limited Company in the UK?
  • A registered office address which must be a UK address and cannot be a P.O Box Address
  • You must be able to receive mail at your registered office address
  • At least 1 director and 1 shareholder (who can be the same person but in both instances must be over 16 years old)

The great news is, our Non-Residents Package includes the use of our Registered office address. We will also ensure you receive all your mail via scan and email services. Should you require hard copies of your mail, these can be forwarded to you for a small fee.

What’s the difference between a Trading Address, Registered Office Address and Director Service Address?

Good question!

A registered office address is  your legal company address. It must be a UK address and is a standard requirement to be able to form a company in the UK. You will receive post from HMRC tax authorities and Companies House at this address only.

A trading address (also known as a virtual office address) is less formal and is basically the address which you use on your marketing materials, your website, your business cards and other correspondence. It is an address where you can receive your general business mail ie from customers, suppliers, partners, banks etc.

A Director Service address (also known as a Service Address) is the correspondence address for each director of a company and is on public record. This does not have to be a UK address.

How long does the Company Approval process take in the UK?

Once you have completed your company formation form online, Companies House needs to approve the details of your company. This can take upto 24 hours, but is usually quicker.

What happens after your Company is Approved by Companies House?

You will receive an email confirming that your company has been formed in the UK. This email will include your unique Company Number and your Company documents including:

  • A company Certificate
  • A Share certificate
  • Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association for your company
How can I open a Business Bank Account in the UK if I am not in the UK?
