With effect from 1 October 2009, the Companies Act 2006 requires every limited company to use the new companies house forms to notify Companies House of notifiable events.
Companies House will reject your company’s Confirmation Statement if you have changed your company details but no relevant form was filed for the change.
For example, you have recently changed your company registered office address to your home address and you specify your home address as your company registered office address in your confirmation statement but companies house records have your old registered office address and did not receive the form AD01 from you.
Also, Companies House would reject incorrect or incomplete forms. Click here for the common errors made by applicants when writing their company names on the Companies House forms.
