Limited Liability Partnership £34.99 +VAT

LLP registration in just 3 to 6 hours

A Limited Liability Partnership is the most popular incorporated business structure amongst industry professionals like accountants and solicitors who most often operate as partnerships. The added benefit of an LLP over a traditional partnership, however, is the limited lability provided to each member, or partner.

At a cost of just £34.99 plus VAT, our LLP package offers excellent value and provides online company set up in 3 to 6 working hours, digital and printed LLP incorporation documents and a free draft LLP Agreement. There is no need to use an LLP Agreement, but many partnerships prefer to have one drawn up, and it really is essential if you plan to divide profits between members in any way other than equally.

Once your LLP has been approved by Companies House, we will issue a draft LLP Agreement by email. You can then edit this document with the relevant details and email it back to us. We will then send 2 printed copies of the LLP Agreement to you by first class post.

An introduction to company formation

What does company registration mean?

What does 'company registration' mean?

Company formation or company registration is the process of legally incorporating, or setting up a limited company at Companies House. This can be done in as little as 3 to 6 working hours by completing and filing an online application form.

Upon incorporation under the Companies Act 2006, a limited company becomes an individual, legal entity that is completely distinct from its owners and responsible for its own finances and liabilities.

What is a limited liability?

What is limited liability?

Limited liability is one of the most significant benefits of setting up a limited company. It provides financial protection to company shareholders, company guarantors and LLP members. Because the law views limited companies as distinct legal entities, their owners are only responsible for business debts up to the amount of money they invest in the company or agree to pay in the form of a guarantee. Any liabilities beyond these sums are the responsibility of the business itself. Without such a safety net, company owners would risk losing their personal assets and finances to cover business debts and claims.

About Companies House.

About Companies House

Companies House is the registrar of companies in the United Kingdom, and it operates in three jurisdictions: England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It is an executive government agency of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), and its primary functions are:

  • To incorporate and dissolve limited companies.
  • To examine and store all mandatory corporate information provided by limited companies that are registered in the United Kingdom.
  • To provide transparency and openness by making all corporate information available to the public on the official government register of UK companies.
Setting up a limited company.

How to set up a limited company

The company formation process is surprisingly quick, straightforward and affordable. There are three ways that you can set up a limited company: online or by post directly with Companies House, or online through a professional company formation agent like Quality Formations. The latter option is by far the most popular because of its speed, simplicity and low cost. Additionally, expert advice and assistance is on-hand throughout the entire process.

To set up a limited company through an authorised agent, an online application form must be completed. If you are ready to start your company application, enter your desired company name into the name search tool above to find out if it is available at Companies House.

Submitting your company application.

Submitting your company application

When you are ready to send your online application to Companies House, check it carefully to ensure you have entered the details accurately before clicking the SUBMIT button.

Your registration form will be thoroughly reviewed by one of our agents before being electronically submitted to Companies House through a secure software filing system. Applications are then checked by Companies House and, all being well, they should be approved within 3 to 6 working hours, although sometimes it does take longer. You will be issued digital copies of your company documents as soon as this happens, and you can start trading immediately.

Rejected applications.

Rejected applications

Every now and then, a company application will be rejected by Companies House. This is usually the result of missing or inaccurate information. In the unlikely event that this happens, Companies House will inform you immediately, and you will have the opportunity to address the error.

You can then simply re-submit your amended application online on the very same day for no additional cost.
