Company Set-up

What type of business should you set-up?  A lot of people think that setting up a limited company is the only way to more forwards but in reality it isn't that simple.

If you are located in Torbay (Paignton, Torquay & Brixham), Totnes, Newton Abbot and surrounding areas of Devon we would normally recomend that you meet face to face with one of our team to go through your requirements. For areas further afield we would normally work through the processes with you via phone and video conference.

If following a consultation you wish to go ahead and form a limited company it is important to get it right at the start.  Making mistakes in the initial stages will cause a great deal of work to correct after the limited company has been formed.

M. A. Walker & Associates are here to support you through this process.  Our limited company set-up package would typically contain one or more items from the below.

  • Assist with choosing limited company name;
  • Check Companies House register for availability of the limited company name;
  • Assist with share issue and types of shares;;
  • Registering company with Companies House and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC);
  • Advice on setting up limited company bank account;
  • Supply Articles of Association and Memorandum;
  • Supplying share certificates for all types held


I thought any idiot could set-up a limited company and I guess they can but like me probably shouldn't.  I didn't realise the pitfalls surounding the share structure and was just going to set everything up with two shares, one for me and one for my wife.  When sitting down with Matthew and looking at future planning we ended up creating two different classes of shares and giving us both multiple shares.
