Reserve a Company Name

Our Reserve a Company service includes your company formation and maintainence until you are ready to begin actively trading. 

If you wish to reserve a Company name but are not yet ready to begin trading – we can offer you a fully inclusive service which will allow you to keep your company name, while we take care of all your statutory obligations!

Will I receive all my company documents?

Yes. We will send you digital copies of all your company documents via email as soon as your company is formed. Including:

  • Company Incorporation Certificate
  • Company Share Certificate
  • Memorandum and Articles of Association
  • Company Register

What happens if I start trading?

Simply let us know and we will stop your service. You will need to contact a professional accountant to prepare and submit your Annual Accounts for  a trading company.

What are the benefits of reserving a company name?

You may have found a Company name available which you like but are worried that it may be registered by the time you are ready to begin trading. In this case, it may be wise to register you company name to ensure that it is not taken by anyone else. The only way to reserve a company name, is by forming a company and keep it dormant until you are ready to begin trading. 

Will I still need to submit Annual Accounts?

Yes. Every company registered in the UK is required to submit Annual Accounts to companies house. However, if your company has not been trading, these will be Dormant Accounts as they will show no trading activity. The submission of Dormant Accounts is included in our service fees. 

Do I need to submit an Annual Confirmation Statement?

Yes. Even if you have just reserved a company name but are not trading, there is a compulsory obligation to submit you Company Confirmation Statement every year.
