What is the difference between an undertaking and registration
The undertaking is a written declaration of your intent to register, whereas as the registration means you have already undertaken the process. For practical reasons certain registrations may not be able to be made when setting up a new business, but care should be taken when buying into an existing business that it is compliant.
Please note where an undertaking is accepted with your business visa application, rather than an actual registration there is a requirement for the applicant to subsequently submit proof of registration.
