Virtual In-House Solicitors (VIHS) – advice and legal guidance on all matters relating to company formations

Sole trader? Limited Company? Partnership? Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)?

Deciding the best legal entity for your organisation can be a confusing and complex process, but it’s a very important decision, because the right vehicle may offer significant tax, privacy, protection and other benefits compared to the other options.

And unless you understand all the options in detail, you can’t make an informed choice.

Here at Virtual In-House Solicitor (VIHS) we’ve developed a reputation for giving cost-effective advice and support to start-ups and existing organisations across a range of sectors, ensuring that they maximise the opportunity for future growth and prosperity.

What seemed like an absolute minefield was made simple by my VIHS adviser, and I’m delighted to have resolved it so quickly, at a fraction of what I’d assumed it would cost.

If you need assistance with creating or re-structuring a company or partnership, we’re here to help

If you’re starting or re-structuring your organisation, we’ll help you to understand the differences between being a sole trader, a limited company and a partnership, and any other relevant options.

Then we can help you register your organisation at Companies House, for example, and ensure that all the necessary documentation is duly filed.

At VIHS, our services include:

  • Company structure advice and guidance
  • Help in understanding the tax implications of each organisational vehicle
  • Your statutory duties and commitments when you set up the organisations
  • Your ongoing obligations and deadlines

As a partner or director, you have a clearly-defined statutory duty to run your business in certain ways, and ignorance or avoidance of these regulations can result in serious fines and other sanctions.

For many smaller companies, private limited companies and partnerships, it may not be cost-effective to have permanent, in-house employees to provide these services. For others the fees charged by corporate law firms may not be affordable. That’s where Virtual In-House Solicitor (VIHS) comes in.

We’re here to provide that necessary legal insight, as and when you need it. Ours is a flexible law advisory service that has been designed to meet your needs and obligations, at costs that you might find more manageable.
