What is company incorporation?

Forming a company can be a positive and exciting step for many business owners. It is therefore important to ensure from the offset that the company is properly formed and has all the necessary constitutional documents in place.

Our Service

We can meet with you and advise you on the different types of companies available. We can then draft the application of incorporation and submit the same to Companies House to register the company.

On incorporation, it is usual for companies to adopt the Model Articles, however, we appreciate that each business is different and therefore it is important that the documents governing your company’s operations suit your business needs. Thus, we can assist in drafting bespoke articles to fit your company’s needs.

We can also assist in drafting shareholders agreements and cross-option agreements.

What people say about us

We were recommended to use Poole Alcock and in particular, Monisha by our neighbours, who found her to be very approachable.

Throughout our relationship, from the initial meeting through to completion, the communications were always first class and easily understood. Monisha was knowledgeable in the subject we approached her with and was quickly able to conclude the documentation and business we had.

I would not hesitate to recommend Poole Alcock, and Monisha herself, if asked.
