can do this simply by registering for Web Filing. You will require
two codes -

of the system. The code is emailed to you as soon as you register.

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
