Company Formation & Secretarial Services Solicitors

We offer a range of company administration services to meet your specific requirements. In addition to our formation services, we offer a registered office and a company secretarial service for a set annual fee.

Incorporation services

If you are looking to set up a company we would be delighted to assist and our fixed pricing is as follows:

  • Basic Formation package with statutory prescribed Articles of Association*: £150 + VAT
  • Tailored Articles of Association Formation package**: £300 + VAT
  • Property Management Company Formation package*: £350 + VAT

All of our formation services include the production of a set of the required statutory registers which need to be maintained by the company.

We also advise on incorporating charitable companies limited by guarantee and Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIOs). This is a bespoke service which we are happy to provide at an agreed fixed fee.

Secretarial services

Even though there is no longer a requirement under Company law for most companies to have a secretary, there are still a number of administrative tasks which need to be carried out on behalf of the company.

In order to unburden you of these tasks, Ashtons Legal offers a comprehensive service to assist you with these administrative duties, including the provision of a registered office address, dealing with the annual confirmation statement, maintaining the register of people with significant control, execution of the allotment and transfer of shares and the filing of various statutory documents.

If you are just starting your business or looking to convert your business from a sole trader/partnership, our team can also assist with the formation and initial re-organisation.

Our company secretarial and incorporation services are equally applicable to limited liability partnerships (LLPs).

Registered office service – £250 plus VAT per year

All companies are required to have a registered office address. This address must be included on all company correspondence as well as its website and is a matter of public record. By using our office as your registered office address, you can keep your address private and we will forward on to you all mail we receive to a location of your choosing.

Company administration service – £650 plus VAT per year

We offer a comprehensive service to assist you with these administrative duties, which includes:

  1. Producing and filing Companies House forms as and when required by the company.
  2. Maintaining the companies statutory registers.
  3. Assisting with any specific annual confirmations and document filing requirements at Companies House.
  4. Telephone advice dealing with questions regarding the maintenance of your company’s statutory registers and filing requests at Companies House.

We also provide a company secretarial service to property management companies. This is a bespoke service which we are happy to provide at an agreed fixed fee.

As our company secretarial services are purely administrative, they do not include the provision of any legal advice. We would of course be delighted to help in this regard and are happy to discuss your needs with you.

We aim to provide a cost effective, professional service enabling you, the business manager, to concentrate on building and promoting your business. We are always happy to explore a tailored offering of any of the above to ensure any services we provide meet your requirements and are appropriate to your company.

* The above fees are exclusive of any applicable filing fees.
** The price of this incorporation service will be more if particularly detailed Articles of Association or more than one class of shares are required.
