I’ve lost my Company Authentication Code! What shall I do?

authentication codeWell first off, ask us if we have it. We hold authentication codes for all the limited companies that we form. If however, the code we have has expired, simply:

1. Register for Companies House WebFiling
2. Sign in to Companies House WebFiling
3. Select “Forgotten your authentication code?”
4. Select if the authentication code is for a Company or LLP, choose the company type and enter the company number, click “SUBMIT”
5. Confirm the details
6. The authentication code will then be posted to the company’s registered office
