You can save your business time and money by filing your documents online.
The benefits are you’ll:
- be less likely to get late filing penalties
- get confirmation that Companies House have your documents
- find out if they’re accepted or rejected
It’s cheaper to file online
It costs less to file most documents online compared to paper. For example, it costs £13 to file a confirmation statement online, but £40 to file a paper form.
It’s quicker to file online
Most of the documents submitted online are processed within 24 hours. Documents sent by post might take a week or more to process. So it’ll be a while before you find out if they’ve been accepted or rejected.
Avoid rejects and late filing penalties
Online filing also has built-in checks to help you avoid errors and rejection. When Companies House receive a document filed online, you’ll be sent an acknowledgement almost immediately.
You can also sign up to email reminders which is a service that tells you when your company’s accounts and confirmation statement are due. The email reminder service is free.
