Previously, formation agents and accountants had the option to upload their own Articles of Association for multiple incorporations. We have now phased out this option to make the processing of your incorporations easier and smoother.
Instead of uploading your Articles and paying a one-off fee of £25.00, you have the option of uploading your own Memorandum and Articles free of charge. This option is available during the incorporation process and is simple and straightforward to use.
When uploading the file, please be aware that the file you upload will be the document that is submitted to Companies House and will not be edited or formatted by CFS.
- The Memorandum file is included at the front of the Articles of Association – a sample of the Memorandum can be found here
- The full company name is shown on the Memorandum and on the Articles
- The Shareholders Name is shown on the Memorandum and states ‘Authorised Electronically’ next to their name
- The file is in PDF – if you have a word document, you should be able to save this document as a PDF
If an incorporation is rejected for any reason and you are changing the name of the company, please ensure you change the name on your Memorandum and Articles.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to contact us.
