We have identified six key points which you should consider when registering an overseas company in the UK.
1. Do I have to register?
2. Can I register?
3. What information do I need to provide to Companies House?
4. Do I need to send any supporting documentation?
- the company’s constitutional documents such as the company’s articles of association
- the most up-to-date accounts for the company if it is required to file accounts under its parent law.
All documents will need to be filed both is the original form, and if they are not in English, as a certified translation. It is worth checking the requirements for certified translations before making the application and filing the documents. Also, all personal details (personal ID numbers, dates of birth etc) will need to be redacted on both the original documents and certified translations.
