Requirements for the use of our incorporation services

The minimum age requirement for directors, company secretaries and LLP members is 16 years. Individuals not meeting this legal minimum may only hold shares in private companies limited by shares.
Any person who is an undischarged bankrupt is prohibited from registering a limited company in the UK and being appointed as a director or company secretary. Undischarged bankrupts may only hold shares in private companies limited by shares.
Any persons currently named on the Disqualified Directors Register may not register a limited company or limited liability partnership - any disqualified director whose ban has not yet been served in full is not permitted to act as a company director, company secretary or LLP member, unless permission is granted from the appropriate Court. Such individuals may only hold shares in private companies limited by shares.
We are not responsible or liable for any rejection of incorporation or problems arising due to the appointment of any persons not meeting the legal requirements for company formation. It is your responsibility to ensure all persons named on the company formation application are eligible to hold their respective positions.
Ordering our products and services
You are presented with a range of choices during the ordering process. It is your responsibility to ensure you read and fully understand these choices before proceeding with any purchase. Should you have any queries regarding our products and/or services, or any aspect of your order, we strongly recommend that you contact us during our usual UK business hours prior to proceeding with any purchase.
Whilst we endeavour to provide a prompt response to your enquiry, we cannot guarantee to do so in every instance. It therefore remains your responsibility to elicit further information from us regarding the product you intend to order before the order is placed.
All orders that you place through this Website are deemed to be an offer by you to purchase the products and/or services that we supply, subject to these Terms and Conditions and our acceptance of the order. We may choose to reject any order without disclosing our reason for doing so.
We only provide services on the basis that you have given us full and proper instructions and the authority to lawfully carry out those instructions. You undertake to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the information you provide for us, and you accept all liability for the rejection of any services or documents due to inaccuracies or incompleteness.
We do not accept any liability of whatever nature for errors or omissions in documents that are uploaded, or not uploaded, to our website by you, or for any such documents which are subsequently rejected by Companies House.
Where orders are made for our Pre-Submission Review, this review will not extend to reviewing or inspecting documents uploaded to our website - it is your responsibility to ensure completeness, compliance and accuracy of all such documents prior to their submission.
By accepting these terms and conditions, you are granting us authorisation to file with Companies House as an authorised person for, and on behalf of, the company, the statutory forms required to implement the services you are agreeing to take under this agreement for the full term of the agreement. If said services are cancelled, terminated, or shall expire as a result of failing to make the required payment, you are granting us authorisation to file the statutory forms required to terminate these services.

We are regulated by the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017 (“MLR 2017”) and by accepting these Terms and Conditions you are granting us authority to carry out a digital ID verification check by W2 Dataglobal or similar organisation for the purposes of checking your identity and address. This online check may be recorded on your credit record, and a record of the search will be retained.
Should we not be able to successfully verify your identity and address using our digital ID verification process, we will require you to provide proof of your identity and address in the form of certified copies of the original documents to satisfy our Anti-Money Laundering procedures. Failure to comply with any request for such documents may result in the cancellation of services. No refund shall be given for the cancellation of services resulting from a failure to comply with our Anti-Money Laundering procedures.
As a Company Service Provider we have a responsibility to carry out due diligence checks from time to time on our customers (companies, officers and shareholders) to which we provide ongoing services. Should any of our checks result in the discovery of illegal or unethical activities, we reserve the right to terminate services without notice and without refund.
We also have an obligation to meet the requirements of 'Know Your Customer' (KYC) and you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire on the business activity or activities of your company and the reason for your business relationship with Same-Day Company Services.
Our services are not available for purchase where the end user is a Scottish Limited Partnership (Scottish LP). All such purchases will be refunded and the services will not be set up.
Same-Day Company Services is a specialist online company formation agent. We use secure electronic filing facilities that are made available from Companies House - the UK Registrar of Companies and via a third party filing company E-Filing. By choosing to register a company through us, or authorising us to file information on your behalf, you accept that all information will be submitted to Companies House via this electronic filing facility.
Provided you have complied with the formalities necessary to register a company through us, Companies House will generally complete the incorporation of your company within approximately 3 to 6 working hours (Monday - Friday, 9am-5pm), however, in some cases it could take up to 24 hours - dependent on Companies House workload. We have no control over this process; therefore, it may take longer than the usual processing time of 3 to 6 working hours.
We offer no guarantee your company application will be approved on the same business day as you make your order. If it is important that your company is incorporated on the same day as you make your order, we recommend you purchase the Guaranteed Same-Day Service, which is available as an additional service on our checkout page, up to 3pm Monday - Friday.

Post will not be forwarded for trading names unless prior agreement has been sought and received by the customer, and mail for trading names we have not entered into agreement for, will be returned to sender on the same day it is received.
Should we receive mail returned to ourselves which has previously been forwarded by ourselves to the forwarding address we have on file for the customer, we will contact the customer to clarify the forwarding address we have on file. Any returned mail which is subsequently re-sent by post to the customer will be charged at Royal Mail postal rates + 15%, unless we are satisfied an error has been made by ourselves.
The price of any goods or service that you may purchase from us is set out under the option you select on our Website. Unless otherwise stated, all prices exclude VAT at the prevailing rate on the date of purchase.
The total purchase price, including VAT (if any), will be displayed in your shopping cart prior to your confirming the order.
