Post company formation checklist - Clever Formations guides

Post formation checklist
So, you have your company formed at Companies House - what's next?

Do I need a bank account?

Whilst there is no legal requirement to open a limited company bank account after your company has been formed, we would highly recommend it. All our limited company formations are sent a Tide introduction with a £100 cashback benefit.

Do I need to register for taxes at HMRC?

If you intend to trade in the near future, you should register the company for Corporation Tax. You can do this by waiting for HMRC to send you a form to complete.

Other taxes, such as VAT and PAYE can be registered if relevant.

Where to display my company details?

You should display your company in the following areas:

  • Registered office address
  • Any business trading address
  • On your company stationery and documents
  • Websites and other online material

Can I change my registered office?

Yes, you can change your registered office address whenever you like once the company has been formed. You can use our company portal to update the address or login to web-filing via Companies House - all of which are free of charge to use.

I wish to add more shares?

Shares can be transferred at any time after your company is formed. You can also increase the share capital of the company and also add new shareholders too. However, anytime shares are changed, or increased, documentation must be produced and have the approval of the director.

Can I trade under a differrent name?

Yes, you can. Provided you show the legal, registered name of your company on your invoice or stationery, you can trade under a different name, if required.
