What is a Company Formation Agent?

Companies House are an administrative government agency, rather than a public service which means that they are unable to provide the advice and support that individuals so regularly need, which is where Company Formation Agents come in. An agent will be experienced in dealing with company law and the procedures involved which means that they are perfectly placed to act as the ‘man in the middle’ between companies house and the public.

Because companies house recognise that the role of the agent is so significant, they work with a handful to develop websites for company formation which operate simultaneously with their own computer systems, this has led to the market for company formation becoming well populated and prices being driven down.

Most commonly; formation agents’ websites will provide forms that allow users to input the details of their company, directors, secretary and shareholders and make payment. More developed formation agents will have systems that automatically check the data and submit the application to companies house, eliminating the need for human input from the formation agent and reducing the cost.
