Services in more detail

A closer look at how these services work.

Navigating UK Company set up is not for the faint-hearted. Is the business name you want available? Are your shares beneficially held? What address can you use if you’re trading online?

It’s overwhelming but that’s what we’re here for. We’ll manage it for you so you can direct your focus back where it’s needed most.

This service includes:

  • Setting up a standard UK registered company
  • Companies House registration*
  • HMRC registration of Corporation Tax, VAT and PAYE
  • Standard Articles of Association
  • A basic share structure

*This includes registering your Company name, business purpose, registered address, business address, shareholders, Directors details (up to two directors), Persons of Significant Control and financial year end set up.

This service does not include more complicated structures, such as parent companies, or non-ordinary shares, such as preference, golden or class B shares. We can help you with these too, but let’s talk first so we can find out what you need and provide a quote.


£200 + VAT
(excludes Companies House and HMRC application fees, which will be charged directly to you)

Choose a suitable time, and we’ll be all ears to answer any questions you may have about how we can support your journey.

If you need a Registered Office address for your UK company but don’t have anyone in-country, this service is for you.

It involves:

  • An online mail management platform so you can choose what to do with any mail you receive (e.g. forwarding it elsewhere)
  • We recommend only using this address for Companies House and HMRC letters that are required to go to a UK registered address, and use a separate address as your ‘service address’ to keep costs down

Our fee:

  • £12/month + VAT
  • Approx. £2.10 per letter for handling costs
  • Further plans are available if you’d like to manage a higher frequency of letters and/or parcels (from an additional £9/month)

No one likes tax (except us), let alone in a different country. Navigating taxes can be a daunting task, especially when it’s in a foreign country. In the UK, the tax authority you’ll be dealing with is HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), similar to the tax authorities you may be familiar with in the EU, but with its unique quirks.

However, you won’t be surprised to hear that there are still a lot of forms and a lot of government speak.

Luckily, it’s all very familiar to our team – we have more than 10 years of HMRC experience. Lucky us! 😉

This service includes:

  • Company tax return
  • Financial accounts
  • Income tax return
  • Annual tax planning
  • Tax return lodgement

Our fee:

  • £450 – if your company is non-trading
  • £1,650 (or £125/mth) – if your company is trading
  • No lock-ins
