Minimum Authorised Share Capital: GBP1.00 Issued Share Capital: The minimum issued capital is one share, but additional capital is usually issued to reflect the stability and strength of the company.

Corporation tax (which includes Capital Gains Tax) is paid by UK companies based upon accounts, which are submitted to the Inland Revenue and the Registrar of Companies at the end of the company's financial year. A company is free to choose its financial year-end. Companies pay corporation tax at the rate of 19% where the net profit before tax does not exceed GBP300,000. The tax payable increases thereafter in stages until the net profit before tax reaches GBP1.5 million where the top rate of corporation tax is charged at the rate of 30%. These limits for the lower and higher rate of corporation tax apply to the total profits (worldwide) of group companies and associated companies. Obtaining the lower rate of tax can be problematic for UK companies owned outside the UK.
A 'custom-made' UK company formation has many advantages over an 'off-the-shelf' company. It is usually more economical to incorporate a company with the client's choice of name, directors, shareholders and authorised share capital than to purchase a shelf company and change these particulars after incorporation. The intended situation of the registered office must be stated from the outset. If they wish, clients may be named as the first director and secretary. A same day incorporation service is available from Companies House for an additional fee.
Submission of Memorandum and Articles of Association, Declaration of Compliance and Statement of the First Directors and Secretary and notification of the situation of the Registered Office with the requisite fee to Companies House.
