Your Person of Significant Control Register
Keeping a record of the beneficial owner of your company is now a legal requirement in the UK. To make sure you’re compliant, we’ll safely store your information in case you ever need to access it. Choose between an online register or a printed version – whatever works for you!
Why do I need a Person of Significant Control register?
A person with significant control (PSC) is someone who owns or controls your company. They’re sometimes called ‘beneficial owners’ and it’s possible that your company might have more than one. Limited Companies are legally required to identify who their PSC is and let Companies House know who they are.
As part of your formation bundle, we’ll make sure that you have a PSC register that’ll keep you compliant with Companies House regulations, meaning you don’t have to worry about any additional paperwork or getting in trouble with the law.

What is a company formation agent?
Formation agents perform company registrations in partnership with Companies House. We’re one of the largest, and also the cheapest. We don’t just get your company registered then leave you to it – we use our experience to help you start your business properly. There are plenty of reasons to use a formation agent rather than go directly to Companies House. If you ask us, though, the best thing is that we go through the whole process with you, and get your application submitted securely online. We provide expert advice on the legal hurdles while you incorporate, and recommend good quality solutions that you might need after you’ve formed.
What’s the difference between sole trader and limited company?
Think of it this way: when you form a limited company, you put a protective shield between you and your business. Being a sole trader is the opposite – you have no protection. As a sole trader, you are responsible for any debt you might come into while you’re in business. When you register and become the director of your own limited company, you have less personal responsibility. The benefits are that you can claim back expenses, and add to your salary with dividend payments at the end of the year. For more information, see our Help Centre article about limited companies and sole traders.
