If you feel you need some guidance and aftercare (or you are just too busy to do it yourself) our acclaimed managed incorporation service is the answer and with prices starting from £175 is great value for money. See these details of our full company set up service up at Companies On Tyne.
Although most commercial undertakings adopt a Private Company Limited by shares structure we are able to incorporate Companies limited by guarantee, limited liability partnerships (LLPs), Community Interest Companies (CICs) and Incorporated Charitable Organisations (ICOs) where that is appropriate for the organisation's proposed activities.
We can provide advice and support your actions on Share structures, succession issues, dividend policies & practice and any small company issue.
We can assist directors and officers of the company discharge their corporate responsibilities on an ongoing or ad hoc basis providing support and guidance on day to day management issues as well as help with registration with HMRC for Corporation Tax, VAT and Payroll and with other authorities for Information Protection etc.
To avoid misunderstandings and disputes we believe that the terms under which directors are employed should be agreed at the outset and included in a comprehensive written agreement, we are pleased to offer assistance with drawing up such agreements.
In appropriate circumstances we can provide non-executive Directors to support the development and operation of your company.
We recommend that Shareholder Agreements be drawn up to underpin the ownership and management of private companies and we offer an agreement writing service.
We provide a Registered Office address facility should you wish to base your business at our offices. Similarly, should you wish us to retain your Company's Statutory Registers at our address it may be used as the SAIL location. We would particularly welcome enquiries from foreign-owned subsidiaries and branches.
We can ensure that you meet your legal obligations and comply with the requirements of the Companies Acts through our practical Registrar and Secretarial Service package which takes care of statutory filings, your board meetings, appointment and retirement of Directors and company secretary, governance, annual returns, share transfers, dividend and distribution policies, procedures and guidance on any other company issue that may arise.
The Companies Act 2006 brought in many changes in Company Law and in particular made provision for a simpler and more compact model Memorandum and Articles of Association and which if adopted removes the Authorised Capital stipulation in the Table A (as amended by CA2006). We offer a review and re-write service for your Articles in order to take advantage of these new provisions.
Arbeia has the skills to assist with Company development and with the necessary practical steps including those relating to the issue of new shares, creation of new share classes, buying and selling of businesses, transfer of shares, mergers and acquisitions, adoption of modern articles of association.
Running a company exposes Directors to a wide range of risks, legal, financial and reputational, Arbeia will be pleased to analyse the particular risks that you face and develop strategies to help you manage and reduce this exposure.
We undertake investigations concerning company ownership and control, share ownership etc and advice on shareholder disputes and rights.
Where statutory records have been lost we undertake the re-constitution of the Register of Members and other company registers.
General consultancy on business operations and management is available from the team of advisers having experience of a broad range of organisations and industries
When the time comes that your Company no longer meets your requirements and you wish to close it, we are able to advise on the most economic method of shutting it down. If it is insolvent we would involve a recommended firm of Insolvency Practitioners. Provided it was solvent we could assist with the collection of sums due and the clearing of creditors, informing HMRC and other practical closure steps leading up to the filing of the Striking Off request with Companies House.
