UK Online Company Registration and Formation Agent

Welcome to Contractor UK's Online Limited Company Registration and Formation Agent. We are currently one of the fastest formation agents in the country, with your brand new Company usually formed within 3 working hours of your order (provided there is no backlog at Companies House).

As long as your chosen name is available you can start trading through your Company using your company name once your Certification of Incorporation has been emailed to you - usually within 3 working hours of you placing the order.

Our system has "up front" online nomination of company officers (i.e. Director(s) and Secretary) for an even faster service. From April 2008 you need only to appoint one Director in order to form a limited company. Once your company is formed you can apply for your own business bank account.

Use the links below to learn about forming your limited company or simply proceed to the registration agent to make sure that your preferred company name is available - if it is you can then purchase it using your credit or debit card at a cost of only £75 + VAT.

If you have any problems with the company registration agent please email

Please note that Companies House do not form companies at weekends and bank holidays – and so any online applications made on the weekend, will not be processed until Monday.

You will need a UK registered address to form a company. If you are based in Northern Ireland and do not have a UK registered address, you will need to contact the Northern Ireland Registry on 0845 604 8888

You will need to enter the following "electronic signature" information for all Director(s) and Secretary(ies) before your company can be formed: 3 of these: town of birth, telephone no, NI no, passport no, mothers maiden name, eye colour, father's forename, so please ensure you have these to hand before starting.
