Company Formation Process

Company formation or company registration is the process of incorporating your new company with Companies House. Completing this process means your business becomes an independent legal entity. This means the company will be seen as separate from the owners in regard to assets and liabilities.

Incorporating your company provides a good level of financial protection as the owners will only be liable for the value of their shares or guarantee. The process of incorporation is dependent on the type of company you wish to create.
