Our company formation solicitors have vast knowledge of forming UK companies and setting up UK businesses so that you can benefit from expert advice from the start.
The prospect of being an entrepreneur by starting a new business venture should be an exciting one, but in practice the process involved in setting up a business is blighted by numerous legislation and regulations in place which businesses need to abide by. Therefore, seeking professional legal advice is a must so that you understand what you are getting into and the wide array of legal implications that go along with starting and running a business.
Starting a new business venture requires time and effort to plan and research on the most appropriate business structure to adopt in relation to your business. This is an important decision to make, one that should not be taken lightly as it is important to form your business correctly at the outset. Incorporating the right business entity can allow the business the platform to meet the requirements of the business, understand the legislation and regulations the business has to follow, and understanding your legal obligations as the business owner or director.

Limited liability is where the business becomes a separate distinct legal entity from the business owners. This means that the finances and assets of the business owner and the company are completely separate. Therefore, business owners are only liable for the amount they have invested into the business. They would not be liable for any losses or debts incurred by the business. This reduces the business owner’s personal exposure to financial risk if the business were to incur debts or become insolvent.
A private limited company (LTD), public limited company (PLC), and limited liability partnership (LLP) all have limited liability, whilst business entities under a sole trader or partnership do not have limited liability.
Any individual of any nationality may register a limited company subject to a few conditions:
- They are not an undischarged bankrupt;
- They have not been restrained by court order;
- They are not subject to UK govern
However, Monarch Solicitors can help with:
- Preparing partnership agreements;
- Preparing shareholder agreements;
- Preparing articles of association;
- Selling, buying or leasing commercial property;
- Obtaining licences to trade.
Under company law, all companies must have Articles of Association which sets out the internal rules of the company and governs the company’s operations and affairs. A typical Articles of Association consists of:
- Voting rights of shareholders
- Details of shares and dividends and how they can be issued and transferred
- Details of general meetings
- Directors’ responsibilities
- Procedures on how to appoint and remove a director
- Decision making power
If the provisions within the Articles of Association are not adhered to, a claim or an injunction can be made against the directors to prevent violation of the Articles of Association.
