Registering a company in Scotland is no different to registering a company in any other part of the UK. The process is exactly the same and there is no additional data required to form a Scottish company. We can form your company with the Edinburgh branch of Companies House normally within just one hour.
The location of the registered office differentiates a company registered in Scotland from one registered in either England, Wales or Northern Ireland. All companies have to provide a registered office address that is recorded at Companies House. If you incorporate a company in Scotland then it must have a Scottish address.
Once a company is registered in Scotland it will always be recorded as a Scottish company. It is not possible to move the registered address to another part of the UK

To register a limited company
It is not unusual for the owners of a business to move to another part of the UK and transfer their business with them. Unfortunately whilst the physical business may move away from Scotland the registered office of the company must remain in Scotland.
One option would be to close the company and start a new one, but this is very administrative and can be an expensive process. Most people in this situation prefer to maintain their existing company and use the services of a mailing address.
If you need a registered office in Scotland then we can provide an address in Edinburgh for your company. Our all inclusive registered office facility will ensure your government mail is forwarded to you allowing you to operate your business from anywhere in the UK or abroad.

To order a company with our Edinburgh registered office address
You can register your limited company in Scotland by using our simple to use company registration service. When entering the registered office address simply enter an address in Scotland and select Scotland as the country. We will then automatically process your company registration through Companies House in Edinburgh within an hour or so.
If you do not have your own address in Scotland you can purchase our Scottish Registered Address service at the same time as forming the company and we will register the company in Scotland. Most Scottish incorporations are completed in just an hour or two.
You can register a normal profit making limited company, a not for profit company (for charities, clubs and associations) or a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) online using our website.
