Frequently asked questions

How does Companies House fraud work?

It’s pretty simple, really. Companies House has paper forms for companies to fill in when they need to do things like changing their address or adding new directors. Fraudsters can use those forms to make changes in their favour, even making themselves company directors. In fact, every month there are 50 to 100 cases of corporate identity theft using these forms. That can give fraudsters access to your company’s bank accounts, or let them take out loans in your company’s name. Because of a bit of paper, your hard work could fund a criminal’s holiday in the Bahamas.

We can avoid this by stopping Companies House accepting paper forms. If you want to change your company’s details, you can do it online using a six-digit PIN code. It’s much more secure.

What's a company register?

There are actually several registers that the law says a company needs to have, but people usually just call them all ‘the company register’. You need to keep registers of shareholders, directors (and information about them, including their address), company secretaries, charges (mainly mortgages) and people with significant control. You need to keep these at Companies House, or in a place (like your office) where government inspectors can go and see them.

Who are 'people of significant control'?

They’re people who have a big influence on a company – people like you, in fact, if you own a business. They include anyone who owns more than 25% of a company’s shares or voting rights, or who can make big changes to the board of directors. Since 2016, UK companies have to say who has significant control over them, and that’s put on a public register which anyone can see. The aim is to make it clearer who owns companies, which helps to stop criminals using them for money laundering and other crimes. The UK’s one of the first countries to do this. We really like being called ‘people of significant control’. In fact, we’re thinking of getting it printed on a T-shirt.
