Setting up a new business?

It’s much easier to set up a business using a company purchased from Companies House or an intermediary in these days of the World Wide Web. It is cheap and quick to organise, but people generally don’t know the intricacies of Articles of Association or indeed what their company can and cannot do.

AST Hampson Solicitors are experts in all matters relating to company formations and offer professional advice and guidance that will help you avoid the pitfalls and save money and time by getting it right in the first place!

It is important to remember that the company is a separate legal entity and cannot be used as a personal banking system and any personal transactions are illegal and are serious issues particularly in the event of insolvency. Such personal banking infringements will attract the attention of HM Revenue and Customs with legal penalties.
