Our vision

At The Formations Company, we understand how hard starting a new business can be. Often, you’re putting your biggest dreams on the line and it can be a daunting prospect. We’ll simplify the process of forming a company by supporting your business through the first stages of your start-up journey. This means you can focus on the bigger picture.

Who we are

So, how did we end up in the business of company formation? Our founder and CEO Piers Chead had his lightbulb moment when he formed his own company. He was lucky to find a formations agent who handled his paperwork and gave him insight into things he had never considered. From there, it was his vision to start a company that simplified the start-up experience for other small business owners.

The Formations Company was born in 2009 and has since blossomed into a company of 40 spirited individuals. Friendly customer service reps, a development team and great legal experts are part of our business family.
