When you launch a new company, it is the most exciting of times. Making sure the company is properly formed, or incorporated, is an important first step. At Burn & Co, we have helped many companies take this first step with confidence.
Legally registering your business is sometimes referred to as incorporation. It is generally called company formation. Regardless of its name, what is important is that you form your company in the way that you intend. There are many different company structures in the UK – from a community interest company to a public limited company. Our lawyers help you decide what is best for you.
We aim to help get you ready to set up your company as quickly and as efficiently as possible. To start a company, you will need to have certain information ready such as the company name and address, details of the company officers , share capital, and shareholder details. With this in hand, we can assist you with every step.
Shareholder agreements set out certain agreements made by the business owners. These can be used to regulate ownership and voting rights. They can make provision for how capital contributions are to be made or how disputes between shareholders are resolved.
There are different ways to start a company. We help you decide which process is best for you depending upon the complexity of your business structure. If you want us to manage this process for you, our experienced lawyers can do this. All you need to do is wait for our regular updates.
