      Testimonials for Caroline
      • David Morris
        David Morris, Bordeaux

        Caroline was very helpful, knowledgeable and did her utmost to be available when possible. Had Caroline been located nearer to us, a face to face meeting would probably have been of benefit as it is not always easy to communicate clearly by email.

        To be fair to Caroline, what I was asking her would have been almost impossible to bring to a successful conclusion and she did as much as she could in the circumstances. She was helpful, responded promptly to communications and researched the matter thoroughly.

        Caroline has been very responsive and started to advise me as soon as I had made my initial contact. She understands you well, given that she is French and well versed with English.


        I made some informed decisions, with her much sorted advice. Her fees are reasonable and she explains you very well before you engage her.


        Caroline has been very professional in all her aspects. She is very smart and her introspection is the only way for further improvement.

Business Set-Up

Who is this Service for?

If you have already decided on the type of business you want to run, and where you wish to locate it, then the main decision you will need to make is whether you should set it up as a limited company or as a sole trader.

This can be extremely important as you can save a considerable amount of money depending on which option you choose. Both have benefits and drawbacks.

Self-employed is of course cheaper to set-up and less costly to manage since the reporting requirements are lesser than in the case of limited companies.

On the other hand, limited companies do limit your liability in the case of a claim against your business, which depending on the type of business could be the only reason you need to opt for this type of structure. Otherwise, a limited company is rather more flexible when there are a number of partners or when the company has other, more complex attributes.

What does this service consist of?

  • Ensure legal interests are protected, especially when creating a company with several partners.
  • Drawing-up a notarial contract according to your guidelines, properly prepared and tailored to your objectives.
  • Ensuring that your Articles of Association contain all necessary elements.
  • Make sure that the application is made in accordance with the requirements of the Commercial Companies Code. With the power of attorney you will have granted to us, on your behalf we will register your company at all Government institutions and offices required by law.
  • Applying for company tax and identification numbers.
  • Obtaining all necessary documents, permits and approvals.
  • Dealing with bank formalities connected with setting up of the company bank account.
  • Once completed the registration process, we will draw up all other corporate documents required by the Commercial Companies Code.
