COMPANY INCORPORATION (EUROPEAN COMMUNITY)
Type - British - Private Limited Companies / Public Limited Companies
The EU offers frontier free commerce for all European companies. They have the same rights of access in all other member states as with domestic companies. We can help with the creation of a British company for commerce in the UK or adapted for commerce in another member state.
USE A BRITISH COMPANY FOR COMMERCE IN AND FROM THE UK TO OTHER EU MEMBER STATES
(All in price......GBP 420.00 including 1 year UK registered office address)
For certain activities (inter-community) a company may operate from the UK with certain advantages:
- Corporation tax 20% on profits up to £300,000.00;
- The profit (net of tax) is entirely available for distribution as dividend - with certain provisos;
- Directors salaries taxable between 0% and 20% on average;
- It is possible to operate with or without a UK VAT number (where turnover is less than GBP 80,000 / year).
COMMERCIALISATION IN ANOTHER MEMBER STATE
(All in price......GBP 900.00 including 1 year UK registered office address)
All companies created by us can operate in other member states by registering a local branch, for example in France or Belgium that will conform with local legislation. We supply legalised copies (with an Apostile) of the incorporation documents and minutes of meetings. The company can then operate as a domestic company in the country where the branch is registered. You choose the authorised capital of the company and the amount of the authorised capital that has been issued. No capital need paid into a blocked bank account and no British activity is necessary. Civil liability is limited to the value of subscribed capital only, not the authorised capital which may be greater.
