    I am currently going through the process of forming a company.

    In this case a company Limited by Shares.

    I am aware that I require

    1. A Memorandum of Association
    2. Articles of Association
    3. Form 10
    4. Form12

    But I have also been told that I require

    5. Letter to Registrar
    6. First Directors Board Minute
    7. Share Certificate
    8. Shareholders Agreement

    I have checked my trademark is available and once the formation is complete I will purchase it.

    I am looking for someone to inform me if I have missed any document and also whether or not the documents I have stated that I have been told I also need are actually required as they are extra costs.

    I will be very grateful to anyone who can help me.
    Thank you.

    Why don't you just use one of the online company formation specialists rather than doing it yourself which takes loads of time and you're not really sure that its been done right.

    We got ours set up by www.uk-plc.net it took about twenty minutes and they supplied all of the necessary forms.

    Costs about £28.00

    Hi James

    Can you just register a name rather than setting up a company ?

    Searched the net but they all seem to come back as registering a Company rather than a name.

    Bit confusing.

    Regards

    Skyhi2.

    You cannot just register a name but you can just register a trade mark :)

    Online Trader is right - you cannot register a name at Companies House, but you can register a trademark with the IPO (patent office), I believe. This is usually more expensive but should give better protection against others using your name. Just having a limited company set up under a particular name does not offer much protection against anyone trying to copy it usually.

    Some people set up dormant limited companies to protect (to some extent) their name, but you will still have to keep up with the filing requirements at Companies House or risk a fine! If you're serious about protecting your trading name then it may best to look into registering it as a trademark.

    Hope this helps,

    James.
