Which company type is best for your company?
By far the most popular type of company formation, a private company limited by shares offers its owners limited liability. The company is owned by one or more shareholders who hold its shares. It can operate with one or more directors and there’s no need to appoint a company secretary.View packages
A limited liability partnership can be ideal if you want to combine the protection offered by limited liability with the flexibility of a traditional partnership. Although used by some other businesses, it’s most often used by professionals (like accountants, solicitors and architects) and consultants.View packages
Instead of shareholders, a company limited by guarantee has members who undertake to contribute an amount of money if the business is wound up. This is usually a great choice for not-for-profit organisations, like clubs and associations. It’s not suitable for charities or profit-making businesses.View packages
Far less common than a private company limited by shares, a public limited company (or plc) is the only type of UK company permitted to offer its shares to the public.

The company formation package is quick and easy with helpful guides down the side where necessary. I have an account with Inform Direct so Companies House fees are paid easily by Direct Debit and an email is sent when the company is formed along with the relevant documents. A breeze to use.
Happy with the outcome! Quick process and I will definitely be using other services soon.
Fair and competitive prices
Totally trouble free, efficient and good value
Inform Direct's interface for company formation is simple and intuitive. My company was registered in less than 5 hours. I saw that I made a mistake on one of the addresses. I fixed it on Inform Direct inside of 2 minutes and it was updated on Companies House's website within an hour. I appreciated the ability to save an application part-way through and the automatic generation of the statutory registers which saved me a good deal of time. Money well spent.
Constantly innovating and improving - from a fantastic base.
Simple and incredibly straight forward!
