Personally I wouldn't worry about it. If you try and buy all the possible combinations that you think are relevant, you could end up spending a mini-fortune!
I reckon that most people here only ever offer the domain for sale, they don't go further than that.
The Ltd company is more for financial/accounting purposes, it does not confer intellectual property / branding rights which are more important for marketing, that is done by the UK trademark. So, if you were going to do anything, a UK trademark application might be considered, but as said previously, most people here would not do that just to sell the domain.
Let someone else buy the company and then come to you for the domain
I'm not suggesting this as a 'squat' play.
It amazes me why these agents don't buy domains to go with their shelf companies. When you see some of the company names on offer, and the relevant domains free to register, it makes no sense.
If you're confident of getting more 5-figure offers, it may be worth purchasing the company to offer as a "super package" if it's only going to cost you 1,500 pounds. Especially if you can identify the target market precisely (is there a simple commonality to all the entities that have made those offers so far?) and can see a route to reach out to that target market through some kind of advertising/marketing campaign.
Have you considered the possibility of buying the company, getting the necessary trademark(s) you need, and simply building up the domain and operating the business? You're putting what could be a slightly higher valued sale in the forefront of your mind when if you have a domain that good, you could probably utilize it to build a solid revenue earning business for yourself.
Don't you think your buyers would be in the same position?
