Published On April 19, 2014 | By Albert Just | Company Formation Agents UK

Setupacompany is a company registration agent in the UK. They have been in business for quite some time (since 1996).

They claim to be a quick and easy solution to forming new companies in the sense that they do all of the legal paperwork for you.

Registration is said to be quick and easy, and they claim to be able to have your company formed and running within 3 working hours of submission!

To make it very simple, this company basically gives you some quick online forms to fill out with information about your business. Once completed, the website e-files the information automatically and distributes the appropriate and required paperwork to where it needs to go.

Of course, since every company is a little bit different, there are a wide range of options to consider, but you can find them all in one easy place on this website. Read our setupacompany review to learn more….


First off, let’s take a look at the website itself. We weren’t sure what to expect, since we had not actually had any prior experience with this company… but we were pleasantly surprised to find a very professional layout in a site that offered quite a bit of information. It is clean with bright colors. Navigational sidebars make it easy to research things like company registration, choosing a company name, forming a company as a non-UK resident, types of limited companies, assigning shares, etc.

One of the first things that you see is a claim that your company can be set up in under 4 minutes from start to finish… which is honestly a fairly radical claim, yet one that Setupabusiness seems to be completely capable of reaching (as long as you are somewhat prepared before you start).

One thing that was really helpful to us as we browsed the site for the first time was a short Youtube video that helped to explain exactly what this business does. Since this might not be the type of business that everyone has heard of, it can be helpful to have exactly what they do explained the way it is in the video.

Service Choices/Selection

There are three initial services choices offered on Setupacompany. Here is a brief breakdown of all three.

  1. Fast Track: This is said to be the fastest way to get your company underway. You get PDF formation documents, a free domain and email, and more for only £19.99.
  2. Comprehensive: Setupacompany calls this their most popular service. This package includes printed shareholder and formation documents, a fee domain and email, plus a lot more paperwork that the Fast Track option doesn’t offer. This service costs £29.99, and definitely delivers more value for the money.
  3. Professional: This option provides everything offered by the comprehensive plan, plus a lot more. With this plan, you get your first minutes printed, a certificate of incorporation, memo/articles of association, share certificates, business startup factsheets, free accountancy consultation, free online company name search, an online admin portal to manage your companies, and more.

Ease of Use

The website was very easy to use. It featured a variety of links that you could follow wherever you wish, and it also gives you a lot of information related to this industry in general that would be helpful in determining which version of the service may be better for your individual situation.

Money Back Guarantees

On their website this company says that they offer a money back guarantee, though when you actually look at the refund policy they basically state that the termination of services or supplies ‘shall not entitle you to a refund of all or part of any price’. They do say, however, that this does not affect your right to a refund in the event of a breach of a supply contract or negligence.

All in all, the money back guarantee could be a bit more customer-friendly… but at least they agree to refund your money if something doesn’t work right. We would have preferred finding something like ‘if for any reason you are unsatisfied, then we will refund your money’.

Service Speed

Service speed is no less than fantastic on this website. Your business will most likely be up and running within 3 hours of completing the registration process on the website.

A single person could never register their business in such a short amount of time (unless they did a massive amount of prep-work and research ahead of time… though these in themselves would be very time consuming.) You really cannot beat the service speed of Setupacompany.

Loyalty Programs

Does This Company Deserve Our Stamp?

GoOkayed StampYes, Setupacompany is definitely a business that deserves our stamp.

Whether you are looking to incorporate a major organization or register your small business, it would seem that Setupacompany can take care of everything.

All that you need to do is log on, register, and provide some information about your company. The rest is handled by them.

One thing that we really like about this service is how much time it could save. People don’t always have the time to go filing papers and registering their businesses, but they far less often have the basic knowledge required to do these things.

Of course, that isn’t really their fault either. The system is admittedly difficult to navigate sometimes, especially for someone who has never gone through this process before.

Using a service like this, however, takes all of the guesswork and complexity out of it… and it does it for a price low enough that you could probably dig it out of your piggy-bank at home! This would be an insignificant amount of money for larger businesses and a few dollars out of the wallet for the smallest ones.

There really isn’t a better way to get your business off of the ground, and this company definitely represents the industry in a way that convinces us that they offer value in their services. If you are planning to start a new business or have been tasked with filing and registering to get a new one started, then, it would definitely be in your best interest to check Setupacompany out before you go any further!
