You can make it happen
Starting a new company is an exciting time and something we can relate to as we formed our first company in 1991. The next 14 years were a rollercoaster. Our business grew from just the two of us in a barn, through to an AIM listed company.
@UK plc emerged from all that we learnt along the way, enabling us to now be in a position of offering a range of services and advice to all new businesses; from company formation through to developing a trading website so that you are able to make the fast track into profit!
One of the major issues facing new companies is the range of activities the founders have to undertake. If, like us, you left a large organisation to start out on your own, you are used to having HR, Marketing and Finance departments do all of the specialised work. Our ‘Start Up’ guide gives you a realistic idea of the process and helps you through the tasks you need to complete. Once you have set up your company you need to think about how you market and sell your products and services. Your website is one of the most important assets to consider. Through @UK plc you can purchase your perfect domain name and create your website.
The very best of luck with your business, hopefully @UK plc will have been part of the first steps in your success.

You have made the decision to branch out on your own; the first question is what type of business would be best?
The options are sole trader, a partnership or a limited company. The particular advantages of a limited company mean it is the preferred choice for most as it brings a range of benefits not available to sole traders and partnerships.
These 10 steps to designing your business plan could be the perfect place to start your planning
We have structured our companies in 3 groups to facilitate your choice.
We offer a quick & easy to follow 5 steps process.
From forming your business to providing services to get you up and running, @UK plc is there to help you every step of the way.
At the same time as checking your company name availability check to see if the relevant domain name is available as well. Even if you do not wish to create your own website immediately it’s something you may want to do in the future and there’s no guarantee that the name will still be available.
It is important to understand which documents & services are applicable to your type of Company & which ones would be useful.
We believe the following ones are ‘the essentials’ for a Limited company & this is why we include them in our Premier package.
