Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information and Updates

Our offices are open and operating as normal with social distancing and some home working team members.

Customers are not allowed to enter our office so please call, email or use online chat to contact us.

Company formation services:

Companies House are operating online service so you can still place company formation orders via our website as normal but not same day applications. Any orders for hard copy documents are being dispatched but may take longer than usual to dispatch and we have noticed a delay in receipt for some areas which may be caused by restrictions with Royal Mail.

Document orders:

Any orders for documents issued by Companies House are available as normal on the standard service, same day services have been suspended by Companies House.

Product orders:

Orders for products such as company seals and company registers are being shipped as normal but may take a little longer to arrive.

Virtual Address orders:

Anyone ordering new virtual address services will be setup the same day subject to the usual anti money laundering checks being completed as normal.


Update on 05 JANUARY 2021

We are still open and processing as normal. Our staff are working normally with social distancing measures at our offices. Customers are not permitted to enter our offices at this time but can hand deliver to our post box.


Deliveries outside of the UK – there may be delays for deliveries leaving the UK. Many countries have imposed temporary restrictions and it is not clear how this will delay Royal Mail or DHL as many of their deliveries are sent as cargo on passenger flights in addition to using their own dedicated vehicles. Please expect delays for the coming days.

Deliveries within the UK – largely unaffected but some areas of the UK  may experience local delays due to social distancing restrictions limiting delivery

Apostille certificates – operating normally as next day service in most cases.


All other services are operating normally.

If there is any change to the current situation we will update this page with the latest information regarding processing orders and providing ongoing services.

Thank you for choosing Simple Formations.
