    Good Accountant who provides address to setup a company

    Hi All,

    Sorry if the question has been asked before in this forum.

    I am looking for a good accountant who is able to provide service of giving UK address for me to setup a company.

    Thank you for your attention in this post and look forward to reading good replies.

    Regards,
    TD

    Most accountants will be happy to be your service address and registered office address. Many are free, some make a nominal charge.

    My advice is to choose your accountant based on talking to them and seeing who you have a rapport with.

      The only issue with this is a new enquirer will usually speak to a salesperson rather than the accountant who they will be dealing with.

        Sometimes - but you can always ask to be put through to the person you'll be dealing with on a day to day basis, I can't see why that would be an issue for any firm.

        I've always enjoyed talking to new potential clients, give you a chance to build up a relationship before they come on board which then makes life easier going forward. Plus the client knows you before they sign up, so they know what they're getting into

          Another point to remember is that while many accountants will allow you to 'officially' register your company at their office, some won't allow you to use it as a trading address. This means you'll need another address to receive trade related mail - e.g. bank statements, remittance notes from agencies, etc.

          Can I take a guess that you're relocating from overseas? In which case, as Clare mentioned, draw up a shortlist of accountants, give them a call and be sure to explain your circumstances in detail to ensure their service works for you.

            Thank you all for the replies. I almost always believe personal recommendation based on own experience, that's why I'm asking the question.

              TD, forgive me if I'm wrong, but I'm reading that you are coming to the UK and therefore you don't just need a company registered office, put probably an address for personal banking, tax, establishing banking, etc?

              If so, a lot of accountants would be nervous about that. If the client then does a runner you end up with no end of hassle finding off bureaucracy.

              Can you be a bit more explicit on what you require?
