Use of services through the website

9. Ordering our services

9.1. The products and services that we provide are as described on our Website at the time of viewing. Any order that is made through our Website by you is understood as an offer on your part to purchase whichever of our products or services you have specified. It is understood, furthermore, that our Terms and Conditions apply and that your purchase depends upon our accepting your order – which we may decline without disclosing any reason.

9.2. Should you have any queries regarding our products and/or services, or any aspect of your order, we strongly recommend that you contact us during our usual UK business hours before proceeding with any purchase. Although we endeavour to provide a prompt response to your enquiry we cannot guarantee to do so in every case. It therefore remains your own responsibility to ask us anything that you may need to know about a product before you place an order for it.

9.3. Our products and services are supplied on the understanding that you give us instructions that are complete and clear, together with your authorisation lawfully to execute these instructions on your behalf. You agree also to make certain that the details with which you supply us are full and accurate. You agree, furthermore, that in the event of any services or documents being rejected owing to your failure to ensure such fullness and accuracy then all liability for this is yours alone.

9.4. Your acceptance of our Terms and Conditions implies your granting us authority, as an authorised person acting on your company’s behalf, to file with Companies House the statutory forms needed to implement the products and/or services which you wish to purchase. You accept also that our Terms and Conditions will apply for the full duration of this agreement. Should these products and/or services be cancelled, terminated or reach their expiry due to your failure to make the necessary payment for them, then you will thus be deemed to have granted us authority to lodge with Companies House the forms necessary to terminate said products and/or services.

9.5. By accepting these Terms and Conditions you grant us authority to take payment from your card whose details are stored on our system to cover the stated charges for the services, products or packages with which we provide you or other costs as specified in our Terms and Conditions.

10. ID Requirements

10.1. UNIWIDE FORMATIONS LTD is regulated under the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017. Your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions authorises us to check your identity by digital verification via the sources necessary.

10.2. If we cannot verify your ID and address successfully through our digital process then you will need to supply proof of these by submitting the original documents, or copies of these certified by a solicitor or notary public, so that we meet our Anti-Money Laundering standards. Should you fail to comply with a request for these documents, or else copies of them that have been certified as described, then this may result in the cancellation of those services.

10.3. Since we are a Company Service Provider we are obliged to carry out due diligence checks on clients (companies, officers, shareholders and beneficial owners) whom we provide with ongoing services. We retain the right to suspend or terminate such services to a client, without giving any refund or any notification beforehand, if our checks should reveal any activities that are illegal or unethical.

10.4. We have, in addition, a duty to meet the requirements of "Know Your Customer” (KYC). To this end we may ask that you fill in a brief questionnaire about your company’s business activities and the reasons for your business relationship with UNIWIDE FORMATIONS LTD.

10.5. Reliance on AML-Regulated Third Parties. If you are an AML-regulated accountant, solicitor in the UK, or another relevant person conducting business under AML Regulations in the UK or the EU (or supervised for compliance with those requirements in a manner equivalent to the requirements in the 4th Money Laundering Directive), we may rely on you to apply customer due diligence measures to your clients. In this arrangement, you must:

  • Verify your clients' identities and addresses, screen them for international sanctions and PEP status, and immediately notify us of any adverse findings.
  • Provide Uniwide Formations with certified copies of the customer due diligence documents you have collected.
  • Retain copies of all due diligence information for a period of five years from the date of the transaction or the termination of the business relationship with the client. This retention period is crucial for compliance with regulatory requirements and to facilitate any potential audits or investigations by regulatory bodies.

11. Limitation of liability

11.1. We can accept no liability for Companies House rejecting your application to form a company due to omissions or mistakes made by you in the information that you supply through our Website.

11.2. Should Companies House reject your application to form a company then you will not be entitled to any refund for any of the products or services that you purchased from UNIWIDE FORMATIONS LTD as part of that application.

11.3. We can accept no liability for your company being struck off, i.e. removed from the Register, either for any reason outside our control or following the cancellation or expiry of services that you take under this agreement should your company fail to meet its statutory obligations after we have filed the forms required to inform you of this termination of services.

11.4. The responsibility for ensuring the availability of any name in which you wish to register your company, and for ensuring your lawful right to use it, rests with you alone. Hence, your choice of name for your company and/or any difficulties that may arise therefrom is something for which we can accept no liability.

11.5. Should your application to register a company be rejected or encounter other difficulties because of the appointing as an officer or officers of your company any person or persons who fail to meet the legal requirements then we can accept no responsibility or liability for this. The responsibility for making sure that all persons named on the application to form the company are eligible to hold their positions rests with you alone.

12. Company formation services

12.1. In purchasing from UNIWIDE FORMATIONS LTD the formation of a company you grant us permission as an authorised person to file at Companies House on your behalf the statutory forms that are required for forming a company, since you have agreed to this service.

12.2. Our providing you with this company formation service is subject, however, to your having first provided us with proof of your identity and address.

12.3. The electronic filing systems that we use are supplied through Companies House, the Registrar of Companies within the UK, and these systems are secure. In registering a company through our agency, and/or granting us authority to file information with Companies House on your behalf, you agree to all of this information being submitted through these electronic filing systems.

12.4. It cannot be guaranteed by us that any application to form a company will be processed and approved on the same working day that it is made.

12.5. Should we be prevented from submitting to Companies House an application to form a company by your having left out information, supplied details which are wrong or by our finding that we need additional information to let us submit the application then we will try a number of times to ask you for the necessary information so that we may submit your application. If, however, despite all of our efforts, you do not enable us to put this matter right then we retain the right, after one calendar week from the placing of your order, to delete the information about your application from our systems.

12.6. Once your company is registered we will supply you with a Certificate of Incorporation and other documentation regarding the formation of your company, together with other services, as laid out within the registration package that you chose from our Website.

12.7. If you are a non-resident of the UK, or incorporate a company with a non-resident in its structure, then you are eligible to buy only those company registration packages that are explicitly designed for non-UK residents, as clearly stated on our website. If you purchase a registration package not intended for non-UK residents, your order may be cancelled and an administration fee deducted from any refund according to these Terms and Conditions.

13. Other products and services

13.1. Apart from the formation of your company, and dependent upon the registration package that you selected, you may then purchase also further products and services through our agency. These include (but are not confined to) the following:

  • Registered Address service – including forwarding all official government post sent to the company.
  • Service Address service – including forwarding all official government post sent to the company directors/ shareholders/ persons with significant control (PSCs).

13.3. Such products and services may be added to your company formation package either before registration or after registration. They may be purchased also for a company that already exists, whose details you may import into our systems.

13.4. With regard to Confirmation Statement services we will e-mail you to request your company details so that we may file the confirmation statement for you. We cannot do this, however, unless you supply us with these details and, hence, we cannot be held responsible for any failure to file a confirmation statement when this has been because we were not given the information required.

13.5. By using our Company Fraud Protection services (signing up your company for the Companies House PROOF scheme), you acknowledge that we are not liable for any losses or damages incurred due to service failure, including human error or negligence by our employees or third parties. Our liability is restricted to the amount paid for the service.

14. Company Address Services

14.1. Special provisions related to address services (registered office address, service address, business postal address):

  • Either party (the Client or Uniwide Formations) is free to cancel an address service by giving the other party a full calendar month’s notice in writing.
  • In relation to company address services, we reserve the right not to accept or handle any items that exceed the Small parcel size or weight as defined by the Royal Mail (L 45cm x W 35cm x T 16cm, up to 2kg). This is because we do not have the facilities to store larger parcels. For post and parcel forwarding we may use Royal Mail collection services at our discretion and charge the Customer these costs plus our normal 15% processing fee.
  • The client must pay our post forwarding charges as laid out within the relevant pages of our Website. If the charges cannot be collected then we may withhold the service, without notice, until the debt is repaid in full.

14.2. If payment for renewal of a Registered and/or Service Address service has not been made by the due date, or you have failed to provide the required ID, you will be deemed irrevocably to have authorised us to change, with immediate effect, your Registered and/or Service Address to your residential or such other address with which you have previously provided us for this purpose. This new address information will be registered with Companies House and displayed on public record.
We also reserve the right to apply to Companies House to have our address removed by filing a form RP07 at our discretion.

14.3. None of our address services may be used to imply that your company has any actual office, business operations or physical presence upon our premises. If you mention our address in connection with your company, whether online or in print, you must always clearly state next to or above it that this is only your company’s Registered Address (and Business Postal Address if you have also bought that service). Any abuse of our address services may result in their being terminated.

15. Services we do not provide

17.2. Should you purchase a package to form a company and yet change your mind before your company’s details have been put forward to Companies House, then we will honour your right to do this and refund in full any monies that have been paid to us as long as your request is received by us in writing within fourteen days of the date of purchase.

17.3. We cannot, however, refund monies paid for the formation of the company, or for any part thereof, after we have submitted your application to Companies House. This applies even should your company formation then be rejected.

17.4. No refund will be given for any company address service (registered office, service address or business postal address/mail forwarding service) if our address is registered as such at Companies House for more than 14 calendar days.

17.5.
