Important documents for registering a company

There are only two ways for you to register your company. The most popular of which is to register using your own name or to register a company without a name.

It is possible to register a company without a name because registration number will be used instead.
Some of the terminology that’s used when you register a company or make changes to its documents can be quite difficult but you will need to know it. The people or companies which set out to register a company are known as founders.

Founders can be companies, but it’s better to list the director of the company as the founder or incorporator.
