Our Nominee Director, Nominee shareholder & Nominee Secretary services are legal & discreet ensuring identity protection and easy company formation for non-UK residents. All our nominees are UK citizens & we can provide exclusive nominees.
In the United Kingdom, it is a requirement of company law that information (name, address, occupation and date of appointment) on the company officers and shareholders must be registered in the public files of the Companies Registry. We offer Nominee Director and Nominee Shareholder services for this. The nominee's name is filed with the Companies Registry so that anyone performing a company search would see the nominees name on the company records.

We appoint one of our nominees to serve as a shareholder in your place.
It is important to understand that in our capacity as a nominee shareholder we hold no rights over the shares of the company, we therefore provide a Declaration of Trust to you confirming that we hold the shares in trust on behalf of the beneficial owner and deal with the shares only in accordance with the instructions of the owner, and that the owner can take the shares back at any time they wish.

We recently worked with CG Incorporations to take corporate advice and director services for our UK entity. CG incorporation team is really experienced in this field and they helped us alot by providing the required services on time & to understand the corporate structure, compliance requirements in UK. The whole process was very seamless & fast. I would highly recommend CG incorporation, if you are planning to expand your business in UK or EU from overseas. Our company was in touch with Tripty from CG Incorp, and she was very helpful throughout the process. Kudos to the whole team for great services :)
