Frequently Asked Questions

Read our FAQ's to see the answers to popular questions that we are asked

Which service do I need?

Each of our individual service and combined package pages explain in detail what each is for and how they work. While we try simplifying our services as much as possible, we realise some terms can seem confusing – especially if you are just starting out.
Our friendly and knowledgeable team at The London Office are happy to help walk you through the order process and answer any questions or queries you have about any of our services.

What ID do I need to provide and where do I upload it?

You are required to supply proof of your ID (passport, driving licence photocard, government-issued ID card, HM Forces ID card, valid Student card, employment ID card, disabled driver blue badge) and proof of address (utility bill, bank statement, mortgage statement, HMRC Notice of Coding) within seven days.
You will be shown where to upload your ID once your order is complete.

How long does company formation take?

Once you complete the form on your account, we submit this to Companies House after we have reviewed your submission. If this is submitted during business hours, it may take up to 24 hours for your company to be formed. However, it could take longer.

Unsure which service you need?

What type of mail do you need to receive?

Official mail is what limited companies receive from Companies House and HM Revenue & Customs but can also include mail from HM Courts & Tribunals and the Intellectual Property Office.

Official mail only

Business mail is any mail sent to your company not from a government body. This is usually mail from banks but also includes mail from clients and suppliers, etc.

What is a Postal Deposit?

For all services that include receiving business mail, we require a £20 postal deposit to cover the cost of forwarding your business mail on to you.

When you opt for mail forwarding, your business mail is charged at £0.20p per letter (plus the cost of forwarding)

Once your postal deposit runs out, you are required to top it up. We send you a reminder when your postal deposit falls below £5.00
