200,000 startups use dual-registration service

10th January 2019

More than 200,000 new businesses have used the Government's service to register for tax at the same time as registering their company.

The streamlined company registration service was set up more than a year ago as a collaboration between HMRC and Companies House.

It aims to simplify the process of setting up a new company and reduce the administrative burden involved.

When a business or its agent registers with Companies House, they can choose to register for tax and HMRC's digital services at the same time, rather than sending their information twice.

Mel Stride, financial secretary to the Treasury, said:

"Reducing the administrative burden on small businesses is all part of this Government's commitment to support small business growth.

"HMRC and Companies House are working hard to make business registration and tax easier.

"The Government is committed to ensuring we can deliver a modern, digital tax system for all businesses and their agents, supporting them to get their tax right and reducing the amount of tax lost through avoidable error."
