How long does the company formation process normally take?

It usually takes up to 3-6 working hours to form a limited company, although it can take up to 24 hours, dependent on Companies House workload on the day.

Once your application has been submitted to Companies House, we’re unable to get updates of any progress until your company is successfully incorporated or rejected.
