Frequently asked questions
What’s a confirmation statement?
It’s a document you have to send Companies House at least once a year. It tells them about any big changes to your company, including its industry, capital, shares and shareholders. Even if nothing’s changed, you still have to send a statement to confirm that (hence the name).
Why wouldn’t I use my home as my company’s registered address?
Because Companies House makes your company’s registered address public. If that’s your home address, you increase the risk of identity theft. And, of course, anyone who wants to can come to your house. Even that annoying guy you went to school with, who you’ve been trying to avoid for years.
What happens if Companies House rejects my application?
Nothing bad, don’t worry. If you register your company through us, we’ll spot most things Companies House might have a problem with. If they do reject your application, it’s fine. We’ll talk it through with you to make sure the problem’s sorted out. And there’s no charge for applying again. If you want to make sure it goes through first time, without any delays, you can use our ‘Check and Send’ service, so that an expert goes through your application before we send it.
Why does Companies House reject applications?
People write some pretty strange things in the ‘occupation’ box. The other big reason is the company name: they’re often too similar to another business’s, or they contain what Companies House calls ‘sensitive words’. Anything offensive counts as a sensitive word, of course. But so do words like ‘Royal’, ‘Group’ or ‘Association’ – things that make a claim about your company that you’d need to back up.
