Readymade UK Limited Company with VAT Number

VAT registration can be an unusually lengthy process in the UK. There are entrepreneurs who may require an immediate start. For example, you may need to invoice clients from within the EU now or at some point in the near future. There is now an option for you. Purchase a shelf company from St Matthew with in-built VAT registration.

For VAT-Registration you will need to plan 6 months ahead

Do you require immediate VAT-Registration?  Do you need a tax number to get your limited company moving? In the UK this can take up to 6 months. The British system of limited company start-up is designed mainly for companies who already have a client base in the UK, or who have prospective clients.  If a limited company has no clients or prospective clients, then it can be very difficult to become VAT registered.

Our alternative is an immediately available shelf-company with VAT & bank account (1-3 years old)

VAT shelf-companies are already assembled (but resting) companies. These companies have been sold through the owner.  With these 1-3 year old British companies, there is no waiting. This option makes it possible to start immediately with your new company. You will, of course, have some contract issues to resolve with the previous owner but St Matthew will assist you through this process. We will ensure that the company is debt-free and totally legitimate.

This option will give you an advantage that is both immediate and unbeatable. With a VAT shelf-company you not only save time, but you minimise stress. VAT registrations are carefully checked in the UK. You must be prepared to answer a lot of questions. You will also need to prove that you are actively trading in the UK. This can be difficult if invoices and contracts are still in your business pipeline. These problems ultimately delay VAT registration. However there is a solution; a ready made shelf company, complete with VAT registration from St Matthew.
