All You Need to Know About Company Formation in The UK

Starting your own company for the first time can be confusing. It’s common to feel intimidated by the complex process and what feels like endless paperwork filled with convoluted legal jargon. It can all sound a bit like a foreign language – and that might literally be the case for some of you from abroad thinking of setting up a company in the UK! But fear not, this article will give you the essential details of how company formation in the UK works and how to set one up as a non-UK resident.

Can a Non-UK Resident Form a UK Limited Company?

The first sensible question to ask is if you are legally allowed to set up a UK company as a non-UK resident. The answer is yes. In fact, there are thousands of active companies in the UK that are foreign-owned, most of which have European directors. However, this may change after Brexit. The good news is that even after the withdrawal agreement came into effect, there were no significant alterations to the process itself regarding UK company formation for non-residents. Non-UK residents who were eligible to start a UK company before Brexit are still eligible after the UK left the EU, provided they fit the criteria for a relevant UK business visa.

Research Regulatory and Tax Systems

It is vital to fully understand all relevant regulatory laws and tax systems related to the company you wish to start. There will be some variations depending on the type of company you are planning to set up, so make sure you read the information pertaining to your business and its specific operations.

It is also necessary to consider how new Brexit changes will affect your business. This is especially pertinent to companies dealing with importing and exporting to EU countries or which have employees from the EU.
