Advantages of Limited Company Registration in the UK

Points to make your decision easy

Tax Efficiency

A limited company is a very tax efficient business structure when your annual taxable income reaches around £20,000. This is because limited companies pay a flat rate of 19% corporation tax on their profits. Directors can then minimize their tax and National Insurance Contributions.

Separate Legal Entity

A limited company is a distinct entity from its owners. Everything from the company bank account, to ownership of assets and involvement in tenders and contracts is purely company business and separate from the interests of the company’s shareholders.


Registration of the Limited Company in the UK improves credibility and provides a more professional image. As the larger companies may prefer to deal only with limited companies rather than sole traders or partnerships. Hence it will be very beneficial to register a Company.

Limited Liability

As the name suggests, the limited company ensures limited liability to the members of the company. The members will not be personally liable to any financial losses made by the business. A limited company can therefore give added protection when things go wrong.

Name Protections

Once you register a Limited Company with the Company House, the companies’ name automatically gets protected by law. That means, No-one else can use the same name as you, or anything deemed to be too similar. If anyone does so then the company can claim their name back.

perpetual succession

If a shareholder of a Limited Company wishes to retire, sell his shareholding, or dies, it is far easier to transfer ownership of a limited company than a non-registered business structure. This means the life of a Limited company keeps on existing forever through perpetual succession.
