Hi- we handle 99% of Co Sec work ourselves but once or twice a year when something out of the ordinary crops up we used Stanley Davis. http://www.stanleydavis.co.uk/company-maintenance.asp

The below is the answer I posted to a question about Companies Made Simple back in July - I now use companyformations 247 and would seriously recommend them, customer service at its best!

I've formed a few companies with them and it was fine. But if you need any assistance from them then forget it, their customer service is atrocious. I needed to upload a document to go with an application and their uploading process wouldn't work. They tried telling me I didn't have a recent enough version of Adobe (I had 9 of Acrobat & 10 reader so not very convincing) and so on but took so long (a week to reply to one simple query) that I gave up and used another company instead. They took their own sweet time replying to my complaint too - I think that was averaging a week for each of my emails.

The replacement company I used was www.companyformations247.co.uk - absolutely excellent. I started the process just (like 5 mins) before 6pm and the company was formed and in my inbox at 7.49am the next day. I was seriously impresed. And it was the same price (give or take a £).

I might try the Companies House process some time as that's £30 for same day. But otherwise companyformations247 will be getting my money. It's when you get something a bit different happening that you find out what the service really is and Made Simple didn't live up to their name, 247 did.....
