At Foerster Business Solutions Limited we offer a wide range of business solutions to assist new or established companies. Below is a detailed commentary on the services we offer. Many of these are included within our various formation packages but they can also be purchased separately.
Limited Company Formations - As stated on our homepage we are company formation agents. Choosing any one of the packages on offer will mean having your own limited company formed quickly and easily. The company is formed at the time of order and is not what is termed "off the shelf" though if that is your preference the see our shelf company page . Both shelf and new incorporations carry advantages we new incorporations all the relevant details of directors and shareholders etc. are entered at the time of formation and this removes the requirement to fill in change of detail forms that used to be used before online registration was available. It only takes 4 easy steps to successfully register your UK limited company. Off shelf companies of course are already established and many come with a signifcant amount of age, this can be useful when a comany needs to show it has been a player in the market for a period of time.
We will then track your application at Companies House and providing the name of the company passes Companies house guidelines we should have your company registered within 4 hours, providing the application was submitted before 11am and there are no problems at Companies House.
Ready Made Companies - We have a number of "Off the Shelf" companies. These are sometimes desirable as they are longer established than our newly formed companies. To view the companies available please click here
Registered Office Service - All businesses must have a registered office to receive official mail. Official mail consists of corespondence from Companies House and other government agencies together with mail from UK courts. Many of our clients prefer not to have official mail delivered direct to their trading address (for example if this is also their home address) and therefore choose our registered office service. All official mail is recieved and then forwarded on to an address of your choice. The cost of this service is £49.00 per annum for our Gtr Manchester Office, £85 per annum for the London EC1office.
Offshore Companies & Banking Arrangements - We are able to offer an array of offshore companies and banking arrangements in many different countries.
