Keeping track of renewals can be time-consuming if many IBCs are involved, specifically in Seychelles where annual fees are due one day before the anniversary of incorporation.

We help our clients with this by frequently reminding them and by sending out a renewal pro-forma invoice around 6 weeks in advance of the annual due date.

In this way we guarantee that no Seychelles company falls into delinquency or is suspended unintentionally, which could jeopardize its assets.

UK-registered companies are automatically part of The Companies Act, a legislation that has been around for a long time and so grants its members a sense of strong credibility as well as many other benefits. Receiving a UK certificate of incorporation confirms the connection between the company and the most comprehensive corporate law structure in the world.

When a company is registered in the UK, it is governed by “Companies House,” the governing body for all UK companies. Companies House runs an online data search for anyone wishing to receive information on any UK company, thus your company’s information is completely transparent and open to the public.

UK companies are required to submit all tax information and filing requirements. All annual returns must be filed with Companies House within 28 days of the legal return date. The legal return date is determined by one of two factors:

  1. The date that the UK company was officially registered (incorporation date)
  2. The date determined as that of the last annual return by Companies House

We have Secretarial Services that will file the annual returns of your UK Company for you and can be included in your UK company incorporation order. Strict compliance is required with all UK Company filling obligations. Our accounting partners are happy to assist in facilitating the smooth running of your UK Company.

What is a Company Formation Agent?

A company formation agent in the UK is a person, group, team of persons or an organization that facilitates the formation of a company for you. Depending on the services they offer, company formation agents may offer a variety of services and can form a company from scratch.

The UK has succeeded in recent years in making the process of setting up a UK-based company much easier. UK Company Formation Agents have been around for a long time, but with the technological advancements we have today, such as the internet, the process has become much faster and much easier.

Having said that, the process should be taken very seriously. All limited companies are required by The Company Act 2006 to maintain registers that record the structure of the company, with details on the directors, shareholders and capital allotments. In addition, these details must be recorded in minutes of meetings as well as the share certificates.
