If you are setting up a new business or changing your existing business structure to a limited company, you will need to undergo a process known as incorporation.
In effect, this means that you are creating a legal entity – a business –which has a separate identity to the individuals who own and run it.
Your business cannot operate as a limited company until it has been incorporated at Companies House under the Companies Act 2006.
There are many reasons why you may wish to incorporate your business, one of the main benefits being to separate and therefore ring-fence your personal assets from your business finances.
