Nominee Services

If you want to protect confidentiality and keep your personal details away from public record, we can offer a Nominee Service. All companies registered in England and Wales are required to place the details of both company directors and shareholders on the record at Companies House and the company’s statutory register. Many directors and shareholders prefer to preserve confidentiality and opt for a nominee service, where we will register on your behalf. Nominees are only registered in name at Companies House – we do not get involved in the running of your company.

We can offer:

Nominee director to protect the confidentiality of those working within your company. Please note we cannot offer this function if directors are required to be the subject of a regulatory body.

Nominee shareholder, which is useful if a company has been created for holding shares on behalf of investors.

Nominee secretaries, usually a company acting as secretary for your firm. Although a nominee secretary does not have an active role in the running of your business, it can add value to company formation.
