Border Agency and Border Force

Border Agency and Border Force are sensitive words. The use of these expressions in your company name could imply a connection with the UK Border Force or UK Visas and Immigration, (both part of the Home Office).

If you would like to use Border Agency and/or Border Force in your company name, you must seek permission from the Home Office.

Correspondingly, you must provide a copy of the letter of non-objection from the Home Office to Companies House.

Company name availability check

You can use the Company name availability checker to check if your proposed company name is still available for registration.

How to register a company?

Concise Accountants provide company formation services. Our accountants will handle the incorporation of your limited company from start to finish. We will also advise you whether your supporting evidence is sufficient to support the use of Border Agency or Border Force in your company name.

Universally, your company’s registered office must be a real address. Companies House would not accept P O Box numbers as your registered office address.

Maintain your limited company

You would have to submit a few documents with the UK Authorities every year.

Firstly, at every anniversary of your company, you are required to prepare and submit your confirmation statement with Companies House. The confirmation statement is a snapshot of information about your company shares structure, directors, shareholders and registered office.

On the same note, you must also inform Companies House if your company details changed. For example, you appoint a new director or your registered office address has changed.

Additionally, you must submit your company accounts to Companies House and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC). For HMRC, you must include your corporation tax return together with your company accounts.
