Companies House is the regulatory body for the registration of companies and the maintenance of company records. Every limited company in the UK is registered with Companies House and when setting up and running a company no matter how big or small, you will have a lot of involvement with them.

The main functions of Companies House involve; incorporating (setting up) and dissolving (shutting down) limited companies and examining and storing company information, such as annual accounts, details about the directors and shareholders etc. Companies House also make all of this information available to the public.

Information on Companies House is made public in order for people to see that companies are legitimate, so potential investors can check that they have adequate finances and basically to encourage companies to ensure their financial situation is above board.

If you would like any further information regarding this or would like us to deal with Companies House on your behalf then please do not hesitate to phone or email us, or alternatively, you can simply use the live chat link available.
