Start Ups and Company Formations

Starting your own business is exciting. Well done! If you’re thinking about forming your own limited company, it’s well worth taking advice from our experts. It’s not as easy as you think.

Save time, save money and keep wholly compliant with all the professional guidance you will ever need from the team here at Ayres Bright Vickers

Why set up a Limited Company?

Incorporating a limited company, rather than setting up as a sole trader could be the best way to protect your status as a business owner.

Simply defined, as a sole trader, should a creditor make a claim against you, your personal assets could be at risk. In brief, you could lose a great deal more than you planned for: your vehicle, savings, even your home.

With limited liability, it’s only the value of the business that’s under scrutiny. Your personal assets are safe.

What can Ayres Bright Vickers Offer You?

We offer a full range of advisory services for business owners who wish to set up as a UK limited company. Ayres Bright Vickers can set everything up electronically.

You’re ready to go.

Your Business Name

Consider 2 or 3 different ones (in case your first choice is taken) for us to register your unique company name. The good news is that from now on, no one else will be able to trade under that name in the UK.

Director Registration

You must have at least one named Director. We’ll take care of everything, including any shareholders involved and a Company Secretary, if required.


Normally, ABV will recommend that the initial share capital is 100 shares. Talk to us about what the most appropriate share structure is for your circumstances.

Company Objectives

We’ll discuss what your business does as HMRC will need this information.

Where are you?

You’ll need a registered address to which the statutory forms will be sent. If required, you can use our address as the company’s registered office address. Talk to us about this
