Electronic Company Formation Web Filing with Companies House

Filing information with Companies House is an essential part of running your limited company. Companies House must be notified of specific information within set deadlines and you have two ways of doing this.

The traditional method is to post prescribed forms to the registrar. These forms can be downloaded from this web site or from Companies House

If you would prefer to file information with Companies House electronically you can do this simply by registering for Web Filing. You will require two codes -

  • Personal Security Code - This is issued by Companies House to users of the system. The code is emailed to you as soon as you register.
  • Authentication Code - This is specific to the limited company. This code is usually issued to all companies that are formed electronically and should be supplied by your Company Formation Agent. If not you can apply for a new code from Companies House, this will be posted to the registered office address.
    (Simple Formations provide this code for all companies registered with us, it is detailed in your "Letter of Instruction". We do not have access to codes of companies not registered on our system.)

  • Confirmation of changes being accepted is issued by email
  • Less paperwork
