Things to consider before setting up your Limited company 

There are a number of things that you might want to consider in advance, before you set up your Limited company. Getting these things right from the outset will give your new business the best possible start, so it makes sense to think carefully about them in advance.  

Company name

You’ll obviously want to choose your company name carefully, but it’s also worth considering more than one option. If your first choice already exists on the company register, or it’s too similar to another company’s name, you won’t be able to use it. You might also want to check the guidance Companies House publishes on company names.  

Who are the directors?

Legally your company will need to have at least one director, which is likely to be yourself. You have the option to name other directors as well, either at formation or at a later date. A director must provide two addresses; a correspondence or “service address” for the public register and their home address, known as the “usual residential address”. 

 Registered office

Your registered office address is the company’s official address. It must be a physical location where notices, letters and reminders can be delivered to the company. Ensure that the address you use is one that allows a business to be run from it. 

 Allocation of shares

The allocation of shares is normally done when the company is formed, check that the shareholder(s) are as you want and that the company is owned in the proportion you requested. Remember, dividends are paid to shareholders in proportion to their shareholdings. Further shares can be issued and allocated at future dates if your circumstances change.
