They take the payment before you start the process of setting up a company.

You then find that their system will not allow you to set-up a company without a company secretary, although this is not a statutory requirement.

The helpline instructs you to put one of the director's down as a secretary and state this is the requirement of Companies House.

This is not the case nor has it been so since April 2008 and as a result you would be obliging yourself to meet specific requirements of Companies House that result from creating a company secretary.

They said they could not set-up the company without a secretary but have refused to refund the money they took for the service they are unable to provide.

I stupidly was attracted to them because of the price, avoid at all costs and go somewhere that knows what the law is and what they are doing.

    I have just had similar experience - they messed up my VAT application cost me real money and will not even apologise, let alone do anything about it - I certainly would not use them again.

    I think the company secretary issue was fixed?


    Take your money and set-up the company quickly. Reason for it being so cheap is that they then sell your info on. you start getting spam post addressed to your new company within days. they are unreachable on the support numbers. they don't open you a bank account as is stated as included in the package.
