How can I change a Director’s Name?

You should notify Companies House if a company director changes their name. If your company is on our system you can do this by:

1. Logging in to Companies Made Simple
2. Selecting “My Companies”
3. Clicking on the relevant company name
4. Selecting “Edit” next to the director’s name
5. Entering the new name and clicking “Save”.

The change request is sent to Companies House where it’s normally accepted within 3 working hours.

If your company is not on our system you can file the “CH01 – Change of director’s details” paper document with Companies House. Once filed the change is normally accepted within a week.
