Company Formation | Step by step Guide

Over 250,000 UK companies have put their faith in us to help them start up — and we’re immensely proud of the work we’ve do. Hearing feedback from our customers is a way we can hear, from the horse’s mouth, exactly how we’ve been able to help you; or what we need to learn to do that better.

We’ve refined and developed our company formation process over the years to the point where you can wake up in the morning and have your business formed by lunchtime. But we’re always looking to improve and develop, and by leaving a review you can put in your two cents for how we can be better. Or, you can let us know what we’re doing well, so that we can make sure we keep doing it.

Can I check the progress of my formation?

Once you’ve started the formation process with us we’ll give you secure access to our site so that you can check the status of your company formation. We will email you when we receive an update from Companies House to say whether your company has been successfully formed or that the company has been rejected.

To log in please click on the 'Login' tab at the top of our home page and enter your email address and password.

Once your formation has been accepted by Companies House your company status will be highlighted in green and you will be able to download electronic copies of your legal documents by clicking the 'electronic documents' link.

If your company is rejected we are on hand to tell you what changes need to be made in order to receive a successful formation next time you submit.
