Registering your business

How DAS Law can help

There are so many things to consider when you start a new business. Making sure it is properly registered is one of the first things you will need to do.

Our experienced team of commercial lawyers can advise you on how to correctly register your business. We can ensure that whatever structure you choose for your new business, you get the help, information and support you need.

Here are some important things you should be aware of:

  • A registered incorporated company is a legal entity with a separate identity from those who own it. The majority of companies are limited liability companies, with the liability of members limited by shares or guarantee.
  • All limited companies in the UK, and overseas companies with a presence in the UK need to be registered with Companies House.
  • It is important to seek professional legal advice before deciding whether registering as an incorporated company is the best way for you to run your business.

How much will it cost?

If you would like DAS Law to help you register your business, we will offer competitive fixed fees so that you have complete certainty on your legal spend throughout the process.

Our legal advisers are always happy to discuss our fee options with you in more detail.
