Companies House ‘Webfiling’ service enables companies to file forms online. To do this, you must enter your email address and Security Code. You also require the company number (you can find this on your Certificate of Incorporation) and the ‘Authentication Code’ for that company. The Security Code and Authentication Code can be ordered when you register for the Webfiling Service via Companies House website. Examples of forms that can be filed online include AP01, AD01, SH01, Accounts and Annual Returns.Please be advised that Companies House and Hanover Company Services Ltd are unable to disclose this code over the telephone. You may only request the code to be sent by post to your registered office address. We strongly advise that you do not disclose this code to anyone, other than directors who will be filing documents on behalf of the company. Companies House have recently issued a security alert, as they have received reports of third parties contacting limited companies, claiming to be Companies House representatives, requesting confirmation of the company’s webfiling authentication code. Please be aware that Companies House and Hanover Company Services Ltd personnel will never contact you by telephone to try to ascertain your WebFiling Authentication Codes.
You can request a confirmation of your Limited Company’s officers, shareholders and Registered Office Address through Companies House Webfiling Service.
You may file documents in paper form if you wish. However it is cheaper and quicker to file your Annual Return online.
