Companies House Forms
Forms – most of us dread having to fill them in! However, Companies House requires that all registered companies in the United Kingdom submit a variety of information on their business activities. The forms are required by law as stated in the Companies Act. The forms required cover a range of information from the notice of a change of a director to information about the particulars of a mortgage or charge.
Companies House forms are free of charge and are available to download at any time. Companies House do have certain fees for submitting some of the forms. There are also time limits and deadlines by which forms have to reach Companies House.
The forms received by Companies House are scanned to produce an electronic image, so they have be to clear and easy to read. Companies House do reject documents that can’t be captured electronically. An acceptable copy must be delivered within 14 days otherwise you can be liable to certain charges. These scanned images are then available to purchase from checkSURE for just £4.95 + VAT.
