New Company Forms from 1 October

Newsletter issue - October 2009.

When something changes with the set-up of your company, such as a new director, change of company name or registered office address, you need to fill in a form and send it to Companies House. All the forms that are used to report these events are replaced with new versions for changes effective from 1 October 2009 or a later date. You must use the new form to report the change as the old form will be rejected and this could lead to your company being fined if the event is not reported within the statutory deadline.

Most of the new forms can be filed online through the Companies House website, which is quicker, cheaper, and more secure than sending a paper form through the post. If you sign-up to the Companies House PROOF scheme you can only file changes to your company’s details online. This prevents anyone hijacking your company by submitting a fraudulent paper form.
