  • Should I be a Limited Company or a Sole Trader?
    Limited Company As a limited company, you enjoy limited liability which protects your personal assets. Unlike sole traders, a limited company is legally separate from its business owner, who has limited liability. Having 'limited liability' status means the company is an entity in its own right. This has several advantages. Assuming no fraud has taken place, 'limited liability' means you will not be personally liable for any financial losses made by the business. A limited company can give you added protection, should things go wrong. Because a limited company is a distinct entity from its owners, it may be a little easier for a company to secure business loans and investment. A limited company may benefit from tax advantages. You would be advised to seek professional help to make maximum use of the rules and regulations with regard to pensions, dividends and car ownership. Sole Trader A sole trader is somebody who runs their business as an individual, they are the sole owner of the business and any profit after tax is theirs. However, as a sole trader, you will be personally responsible for your company's debts, so your personal assets could be at risk.
  • How do I start a Limited Company?
    Companies House The first thing you need to know when starting a limited company is who Companies House are. Companies House are a UK government executive agency who register UK company information. This means that they are the body that incorporates, dissolves and publishes information on all UK companies. Key Responsibilities: incorporate and dissolve limited companies examine and store company information make information available to the public What is a Limited Company? Limited by shares companies are usually businesses that make a profit. This means the company: is legally separate from the people who run it has separate finances from your personal ones has shares and shareholders can keep any profits it makes after paying tax At Start Up A-Z, we only form Limited Companies, making your options as a new business extremely straightforward. We believe that a Limited company is usually the best option for those new to business and have made a concerted effort to make the process as easy as possible. Our Simple Process Choose a company name and check if it's available. We form Ltd and Limited companies. Enter your personal information so we can add you as the companies director. Your director information will be on Companies House. Enter your company information. This will also be submitted to Companies House and be available online. Review your application and make sure everything is correct. We'll submit your application to Companies House and your company will be formed.

  • What do I do after Company Formation?
    Firstly, Congratulations! If you're reading this you've probably formed a company and are looking for your next steps. It's important at this point to pat yourself on the back! You've formed a business, taken a step to personal improvement and opened up a world of opportunities. From everyone at Start Up A-Z and Business Support Club, well done! What Comes Next? You'll now need to consider what your business needs to do in order to trade legally in the UK and beyond. We'll highlight a few key areas, but we strongly recommend using the following Companies House tool to work out your next steps. Consider VAT - Are you going to turn over more than £85,000? If so, you will need to register for VAT Corporation Tax - All Businesses must register for Corporation Tax within the first 3 months PAYE - Are you planning on taking on employees? If so, you'll need to register for PAYE Licenses - What licenses do you need to run your business? Insurance - It's likely that your new business will need insurance. You can find insurance brokers on Business Support Club Grants/funding - How are you going to fund your business? There may be government help if you seek it Use The Checklist We highly recommend using the Companies House checklist. It's packed with information and will tell you all you need to know about the next steps, no matter what your business.
  • How do I set up business bank accounts?
    Let's get straight to it After forming a company, one of the first things most people do is apply for a business bank account. Doing so straight away as a smart move! While you can trade through director loans and using your personal account, in practice, it's always much easier to use a business bank account. Remember, a Limited company is a separate entity, it's best to operate with that in mind. What do we recommend? You have lots of options these days when it comes to business bank accounts. The high street is competing for your custom with new online rivals. We reccomend that the quickest way to get an account open is to use your personal provider, applying for a business account through them. Having said that, there are plenty of alternatives. Consider avoiding... You should know that applying to a high street bank that you do not already have a relationship with can be a long and frustrating process. Similarly, some firms, claiming to offer business bank accounts only offer limited services through a prepaid card. Many also don't like accepting international payments so it is important to know what the limitations of the bank you are applying to are. Especially if they are a neo online bank provider. The bottom line We recommend: Setting up your account ASAP Choosing a business you already know Researching the online offerings Applying for a bank account with a good promotion

We try to get all applications back within 36 hours, but if there are issues with your application such as your company name being flagged for extra checks, this can delay the process.
  • What kind of company can you set up?
    Here at SUAZ, we form limited companies. Operating as a limited company can give your business credibility and your customers confidence in your business. And once your company name is registered as a limited company, it's protected by law and no one else is allowed to use it. As for the industry or nature of your company, the choice is yours - all we ask is that your company has only a single director.
  • Why should you set up a company?

We’ll also need notarized legal documents and potentially translations to progress your application.
  • Can you help with startup finance?
    If you’re looking to start your own business, you’ll know that it can take a significant amount of money to get it off the ground. Instead of applying for a bank loan and waiting for it to be approved, or dipping into your hard-earned personal savings, you can give your business the financial boost it needs to thrive with Start Up A-Z’s fixed-rate finance. Take a look at how our startup finance can help your business to grow.
  • What should you list as your company address?
    When starting a business, you’ll need to decide where your place of work will be. For new businesses just starting out, it can be costly and often unnecessary to rent and maintain an office space.
