While those who are not particularly well-versed in business argue that lockdowns and the COVID-19 pandemic will kill business and the economy, we would like to debunk this myth and suggest that we look at the situation differently. We will highlight the main advantages for you. Namely, in the lull caused by the pandemic you could refocus your business on a promising market such as the UK.
Business persons from many countries face certain issues. For example, they wish to launch a business in Europe, they have the money and ideas to do it, but the political situation prevents their development. Offshore Pro Group can officially declare that there are no closed doors, everything is possible for the professionals. We would like to offer you the service of registering a company in the UK. Ltd is the easiest form of company to register in the UK. Besides, should you choose this form of ownership for your business, you will see that it is prestigious, and offers a lot of opportunities. And most importantly, it is realistic and feasible. In just a couple of days you will become the owner of a UK Ltd with all of its benefits. We will take on the hassle of registration, legalization and formalization of your company in the most developed country in Europe.
Opening a UK Ltd might have many objectives. The most important ones are guarantees of data security and exemption (complete or partial) from tax liabilities. In addition, the UK is very lenient in terms of control. This means that most Ltd’s have no accounting or reporting requirements.
Have you decided on Ltd? We support your choice for the reasons below:
- An incorporated company provides for limited liability only up to the amount that has been invested in the share capital.
- If you are the owner of a UK Ltd, no one will ever suspect you of tax evasion. This status will make your business look even more solid.
- Ltd is more popular than sole proprietorship. The main reason is related to advantageous tax liabilities.
- Ltd shareholders can feel secure thanks to British law.
- Taxes are levied once a year. There are no monthly or quarterly payments to the budget.
- When you set up an Ltd, you will automatically have the option of registering a VAT number. This step makes it easier to deal with EU partners and also ensures that there is no double taxation.
- A UK Ltd implies a high degree of data security. No information on the owner is publicly available and it is only provided to the official registered agents.
In other words, a UK Ltd is the choice of those business persons who need a full-fledged company enjoying a high level of prestige, that pays taxes, submits accounts and conducts comprehensive financial and economic operations in the international arena.
A UK Ltd is an effective way to support your business in times of crisis.
A UK Ltd. What Should I Be Aware Of?
First of all, you need to be clear about what a UK Ltd is. It is a type of business entity. It is entered into the Companies House register and given legal personality. The acronym stands for Limited Liability Company. The meaning of this type of ownership is that the liability of company members cannot exceed the amount of share capital invested in the common business. Of course, although there are many similarities between an Ltd and an LLC, there is still a difference. One should consult the lawyers on the subtleties of setting up and operating a company in advance. Let us also consider why UK Ltd’s are so popular with non-residents.
Let us now turn directly to the features of Ltd:
- Ltd is a completely resident UK company.
- The company must have at least one shareholder.
- The shareholders can be both legal entities and individuals. And in this respect, nationality (residency) does not play any special role.
- It is important to organize the company management process. Ltd must have at least one director. Their residency has no restrictions.
- The position of a secretary is not a must.
- The share capital is not limited by British law. The only reservation regarding its size is the lower limit. It should be at least £2.

What Else is Important?
In order for the registration to be successful, it must be ensured that the company keeps proper books and records.
Shareholders must be at least 16 years old.
A UK Ltd must submit an annual report every 12 months, a financial report to the tax office and to the official register of companies in the UK.
When registering companies one must be aware of the restrictions on the company name. It is not allowed to register companies that have the following words in their name: Bank, Trust, British, National, etc. Otherwise, the company name is a matter of the entrepreneur’s imagination, the only thing that must be present is the ending Limited or abbreviated to Ltd, indicating the form of ownership.
