About The Formations Company

We have a lot in common with the people who use us to form their companies. 

Our founder and CEO, Piers Chead, has over 2 decades of experience in the emerging technology arena. Piers left a corporate role to set up his own business and still has fond memories of that point in his career. He was lucky enough to find a formations agent who not only processed the paperwork efficiently, but told him about things he hadn’t even known to ask about.

That gave Piers the best start to his new life as a business owner. It was his vision to simplify the start up experience and he has put together a team of spirited individuals who share his passion for empowering entrepreneurs.

The business we’re in 

As with any legally binding process the technicalities of company formation can be confusing, at times even mystifying.  We’ve made things simple.

Over 300,000 UK companies have trusted us to help them incorporate. It is with them in mind that we developed our 100% secure online process, which has been refined so you can complete your application in as little as 5 mins.  Most applications are then approved by Companies House within one working day.

That’s what we’re here to do for people forming companies today - simplify the process, strip away any unnecessary extras and give new business owners the right kind of support, especially during that first part of the start up journey.

If you've got a great business idea that you'd like to make a reality, why not submit it to our Entrepreneur Award? You could be in with a chance to win a £1,000 business grant, free company formation, and Barclays mentorship package.
