Required information

What information do I need to provide to form my new company?

1. A Company Name.

2. A Registered Office Address which will be available on the public register. This can be purchased from us.

3. A Service Address which will be available on the public register for directors, shareholders, secretaries and PSC’s (persons with significant control). This can be purchased from us.

4. 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. You may wish instead, however, to find your company's SIC code beforehand by looking at the SIC code list .

5. Details of Director:

  • Full Name.
  • Date of Birth (must be at least 16 years old).
  • Occupation.
  • Nationality.
  • Residential Address (not on the public register).

Only one person is required. Although all limited companies require at least one director and one shareholder, it is common for one person to perform both roles.

6. Secretary Details (not mandatory).

If a company secretary is appointed, which is optional, the same details as for a director required.

7. Shareholder Details:

  • Full Name.
  • Date of Birth.
  • Residential Address (not on the public register).
  • Nationality.
  • Three Security Details (these act as an online signature):

    - First three letters of father’s forename.
    - First three letters of town of birth.

8. PSC (a person with significant control) details:

  • Full Name.
  • Date of Birth.
  • Residential Address (not on the public register).
