Company registration is the process of legally establishing a new business entity in accordance with local laws and regulations. It involves filing relevant documents with the government, obtaining a certificate of incorporation and ensuring that the company’s records are up to date.
When you register your company, you will receive a unique number that identifies it to Companies House and other entities. This number is known as the company registration number (CRN). It should be used throughout the life of your business and will remain the same despite any changes to your company name, directors or office locations.
A good business registration service will help you choose the correct legal structure for your business and file all the required documents with the ROC. They will also work closely with you to provide ongoing support to ensure that your company is always in compliance.
Incorporation and Registration Documentation
The most important document for your company is its incorporation certificate. It provides proof that your company is a legal entity and confirms the names, addresses and nationalities of the founders. This is important because it enables you to obtain finance from financial institutions.
It is also necessary to register your company’s name with the state where you intend to do business. Choosing the right state for your company is important because it may have tax and legal implications. You will need to consult with a lawyer or chartered accountant to understand these implications and make the best decision for your business.
