UK

Company registration in the UK is the fastest and the cheapest in the EU. Well, at least it was in the EU. We can set up a company in 2 days, but the problem you will be looking at as a non-UK resident is how to get bank account. If you really need UK bank account, in most cases, online bank will do and this is what we can open remotely in a few days, so no need to travel at all.
