I have been having somewhat of a Twitter debate with a company formation agent. Basically they tried spamming me with a 'great' offer. So I questioned their cost structure.
I have a bit of a problem with agents as I hate seeing people get ripped off by them. Particularly being sold extra's that are not necessary - the main one being the 'official' incorporation certificate. We all know that they get an electronic copy like us and print it on some conqueror paper or such like.
I have found a company called Wisteria Formation that have a really simple interface to incorporate with, yes they try to sell you extras but don't ram it down your throat (it is basic coss selling). For £24.99 I get the Memo and Arts, Inc Certificate and a PDF company register. I advise the client to keep a file and the usual records of minutes etc.
This other company, QA formations are justifying the cost offer as based on personal service. They don't seem to understand that I don't need this. If I wanted to form a company using Companies House forms I could (I ditched Absolute software as that made even harder to deal with!). I just particularly like the ease of use of Wisteria. That said about personal service they are happy to email or phone if there is a query.
I just wondered what other people's thoughts were on this and how they deal with any issues raised. Also are there any other recommended agents that people use?
