The Memorandum of Association is one of the documents required to incorporate a UK company. It is a straightforward document which simply lists the initial subscribers, with a written statement of intention to form a company, become a member of that company and is signed (or otherwise authenticated) by each subscriber.
If you are incorporating a private limited liability company (limited by guarantee) using the Companies House online facility then you do not need a printed Memorandum of Association. In place of a signature from each subscriber you will, instead, be required to provide proof of identity using personal information.
This Memorandum of Association is suitable for use in the UK when incorporating a company limited by guarantee and includes clauses covering:
- company name
- statement of intention
- subscriber details.
