Types of companies in the UK

There are mainly six types of companies in the UK within which a company could be incorporated in the UK.

1.Public limited company (PLC)

A corporation whose ownership is open to the public is known as a public company. In this, any entity can buy shares in the company's stocks. In a public limited company, there is a fixed sum financial liability upon an individual, generally the value of their investment. Within this, the shareholders are responsible for the company’s financial liabilities to the extent of their investment. A public limited company can start their business only after allotting the shares worth £50,000 in value.

2. Private company limited by shares (LTD)

A private company in the UK could be owned by an NGO or a small number of shareholders because the sale of the company share is to be handled privately. No members of the public can hold it. Like a PLC, an individual investing in an LTD pertains liabilities to the extent of their investment.

3. company limited by guarantee

In this type of company, there are no shareholders; instead, they typically have guarantors who promise to contribute a nominal sum of money in the event of winding up.

4. Unlimited Company (Unltd)

Unlimited companies are similar to limited companies, the only difference being that there is no restriction on the amount of money a shareholder has to pay in case of formal liquidation. The company’s outstanding financial liabilities get settled in a legal liquidation scenario no matter the extent of investment they may have made.

5. Limited liability partnership (LLP)

In the UK, legally, LLPs are not considered partnerships. They are treated more like incorporated entities. In an LLP, the status of some or all the partners is such that they are responsible only for their misconduct or negligence. There is no collective responsibility attached to the partners. In an LLP, the partners can manage their business; unlike other corporations where the company elects the board of directors, the chosen board employs other people to manage their business.

6. Community interest company

In this type of company, the objective behind the establishment of the company is not to maximise the profit of its shareholders. Still, instead, they create the company to use the assets and profits to benefit the community.

Challenges company’s face at the time of company incorporation

Heavy administrative work attached to business registration

In the UK, incorporating a business is easy, but abiding by the administrative procedure is complex. Generally, company incorporation takes only 48 hours for a very minimum fee. Still, one needs to deal with HMRC, i.e. Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, which is the tax authority of the UK, to register as a pay-as-you-earn (PAYE) employer; there are many administrative procedures the authorities aren’t very efficient due to which delay occurs.

Complicated tax structure

An average business in the UK spends around 100 hours completing their tax returns, through which they ensure that they are compliant with relevant tax obligations existing in the UK; there is no payroll tax system in the UK, which is why withholding employee income taxes, environmental charges and sales tax is a routine activity.

Cultural barriers

Without assistance, it is tough to manage a business in the UK due to the reserved nature of British people; therefore, making decisions involves a lot of bureaucracy, which sometimes gets frustrating.

The company registration process in the UK

Company registration in the UK is regulated by the Companies Act 2006. The UK company registry, known as the company house, expects companies to follow a specific procedure before applying for company incorporation.

1. Step- 1 Choosing the type of business structure

A suitable business structure is the essence of any business; choosing an appropriate type for your company is essential before applying for registration; there are many factors upon which a type of company depends, such as the nature of the business, number of members/partners and area of operation.

2. Step 2 -Conducting company’s name search

Within the Companies Act are specific rules related to the company’s name and compliance, which must be followed by the company registering for incorporation. The company's owners must check the availability of the company name while complying with the requirements of the Trademarks Act.

Having at least one shareholder who can take care of the company affairs is mandatory before applying for company registration. The company director can himself be the shareholder; it is necessary to appoint management executives such as company secretaries and compliance officers.

4. Step 4- identifying people with significant control (PSC)

People with important control are those having 25% shares and voting rights in the company; they could be the directors and shareholders of the company, and their details must be included within the PSC register and the company’s incorporation form.

5. Step-5 necessary paper preparation

Legal necessary papers such as a memorandum of association and articles of association are to be attached by the applicant, along with the company registration form.

6. applying for company registration

Upon fulfilment of the above-listed mandates, the applicant must choose an SIC code, i.e., a standard industrial classification of economic activities code for the company. This code tells about the activities carried out by the company. Company registration is to be applied with the company's house accompanied by corporation tax if interested.

Requisites before initiating company registration

The company must have a registered office address through which it conducts its business, and its location must be mentioned in the public record.
