How do I start a new private limited company in the UK and then start a new business banking account for it?
I find myself needing to start a new private limited company in the UK and then setting up a new business banking account for it. I've attempted to read around the subject and get a feel for every single obligation
that a private limited company has once it's incorporated but I finding it very difficult to determine this.
For example, I'm basically happy that there are companies such as Jordans
which will file a lot of the required paperwork for you and then you'll "magically" have a new company. This doesn't put me at ease, because I still have no idea what the monthly, quarterly, and annual obligations of being part of a private limited company are, let alone how to start a bank account for it.
I am not looking for single-link answers which point me at Companies House
; of course I've looked at Companies House, and it is not that useful. Far more useful for me has been Businesslink.gov.uk
, but the total set of obligations owed by a private limited company seem to be dispersed all over the website and I can't form a cohesive picture in my head of what is needed.
Help! Put yourself in my shoes. Ideally I'd like a bullet-point list, or a way of building up a bullet-point list, of every single phone call and form I need to fill out for the next 12 months that will result in me having a legal and legitimate private limited company. Thanks.
