How does UKcorporator work?
UKcorporator is different from other company formation websites which generally rely on the user completing a detailed form or series of forms. Instead, UKcorporator asks the user a series of discrete questions. The system is 'intelligent' in the sense that questions are determined having regard to the way the user has answered previous questions. In this way, the system avoids, where possible, asking questions which are not relevant to the user's particular circumstances. For example, if you have answered a question saying that you do not wish to have a company secretary (which, incidentally, is a very common choice) you will not be asked later to provide the name of the company secretary. It is very easy to step through the questions and it does not take long at all. There is guidance available on most of the pages via a hyperlink if you should ever happen to need it.
After you have stepped through the questions, you will be shown a summary of your answers and requested to confirm that the summary is correct. If the summary is incorrect, you may easily go back and change your answers. You will then be asked to pay via a highly secure RBSWorldpay credit card payment page. Immediately you have paid, a set of Adobe PDF documents will be made available electronically to you. These documents are already 'filled in' for you using the information you provided when you answered the questions and they consist of the documents you need for your new company. At this stage, UKcorporator will take over and deliver the incorporation application electronically to the government ('Companies House') on your behalf. This process normally takes just one business day. Once the company formation is complete, you will be notified by an email sending you the 'Certificate of Incorporation'.
