Trust or Company Service Providers (TCSPS): What would you expect to see at a visit to a Company Formation Agent?

As nearly all formation is now conducted on line company formation can be conducted from any premises with computer facilities. Traditionally this business was conducted from shops and offices in the legal and commercial quarter of towns and cities. The use of the internet has had an influence on this and formation agents can now be found at other locations for example on business parks and out of town offices. Larger formation agents operate from offices which are similar to a call centre. Their websites have contact phone numbers for assistance or on screen prompts to initiate email exchanges with potential clients.
