I offer a limited company formation service and a company minutes and dividend voucher preparation service.
This is the process of setting up, incorporating, a limited company. It involves :
- Establishing an approved name for the company
- Issuing initial shares
- Drafting statutory documents that govern the internal and external regulations of the company. These are known as the memorandum and articles of association.
- Obtaining the certificate of incorporation for the company. This is the ‘birth certificate’ that confirms that the company has been born. It is required for certain administrative and legal purposes e.g. when a bank set s up a bank account in the company’s name.
- Obtaining ‘statutory books’ for the company.
I draw your attention to my special offer relating to forming your first limited company for £100.
Before an accountant (agent) can act for you with HMRC they have to obtain authorisation from them. This will then enable your accountant to talk and write to HMRC about your affairs. The usual method of obtaining this authorisation is for the agent to go online and enter three pieces of client information. HMRC will then perform certain checks. If these are satisfactory HMRC will issue an authorisation code to the client. If your client still wants you to act, they will release this to you. The agent then uses this to complete the online process and obtains authorisation.
This is a letter setting out the terms and conditions of trading between the accountant and his client. It will also confirm any agreed costs for imminent tax and accountancy work. A copy is provided to the client and a duplicate, signed copy, is returned to the accountant.
