How long does it take to form a limited company?

Using our system it typically takes just 3 to 8 working hours to form a new company. This is subject to Companies House not experiencing any high volume delays or technical issues.

Our system is completely automated to make company registration as quick as possible. Once you have added your company details and 'click submit' the application is delivered to Companies House servers for processing. The moment Companies House respond, our website tells you at the same time it tells us. There is no quicker way to form a UK limited company.

If you urgently need to register your company we offer the same day company formation option. This incurs an additional fee to prioritise your application which will be added to your invoice. This is subject to Companies House time scales and same day applications should not be submitted after 2.30pm.

Please note Companies House processing times are an estimate only and not guaranteed.
