What information will I receive when I set up a limited company?

Incorporating a limited company is exciting, but during the registration process you’ll receive all sorts of reference numbers and codes which relate to your business.

The registration numbers that you receive help HMRC and Companies House identify your tax records and business correctly, so you’ll need to keep track of them all in order to submit tax returns and accounts. If you have an accountant, you’ll also need to share this information with them, so they can act on your behalf!

Watch our short video to find out more about the reference numbers and codes relating to your limited company.

Confirm Transactions

The number of monthly transactions you have entered based on your turnover seem high. A transaction is one bookkeeping entry such as a sale, purchase, payment or receipt. Are you sure this is correct?

Yes, submit my quote
No, let me change it

Please contact our sales team if you’re unsure

VAT Returns

It is unlikely you will need this service, unless you are voluntarily registered for VAT.

Are you sure this is correct?

Yes, the business is VAT registered
No, let me change it
