United Kingdom Companies are registered online at Companies House. Typically it takes 3 hours to incorporate a UK Company. The most popular type of company incorporated in the United Kingdom is a Private Company Limited by Shares. This type of company is more usually known as a Limited Company or Ltd.
A UK limited company can be used for any commercial purpose. Private companies limited by shares are also used as holding companies and can be trading or non-trading.

The requirements for registration of a UK company are fairly straightforward. The company needs just one person appointed as director of the company. A company secretary and other directors are optional. You do not have to be a UK national or resident to be an officer of a UK company.
All UK Companies must have a registered office within the United Kingdom. This is the official address of the company, it does not have to be a trading address, and the company does not have to maintain a presence at the address. We will provide you with an address to use as your company's registered office.
