Yes. Once you have confirmed and submitted your dormant company accounts they will be available to you as a pdf document, ready to print or file. As soon as Companies House has approved your accounts we will confirm this and also attach a copy of the approved accounts to this email.
Unfortunately we are unable to make a refund once an application has been submitted to Companies House. Your application to change your company name will be submitted as soon as your payment completes and we must also settle the Companies House fee directly the moment your application is submitted.
No. Once Companies House has approved your request to change your company name they will update the name on the register but your company number will remain unchanged. They will also issue a new Certificate of Incorporation on Change of Name which will display your new company name together with your existing company number.
No. Just as changing your company name will not alter your company number, it will also leave your company authentication code unchanged.
No. You do not need to update your memorandum or articles of association to reflect your new company name.
Yes. Inform Direct provide a template special resolution on change of name for use when approving a change of company name via a shareholder meeting. We also provide a free template written special resolution for change of name for circulation to eligible members if you do not wish to arrange a meeting. Both resolutions must be approved by a majority of not less than 75% of members eligible to vote.
No, your application to set up a company is completed entirely online. Companies House will require an electronic signature for each director, secretary and shareholder. This consists of answers to three security questions (refer to our guide entitled Your company formation checklist for further details) - but the individual to which the electronic signature relates does not have to be present for our online process to be completed.
For subscribers, the total data storage allowance available is calculated by applying an allocation of 250MB for each company included in your Inform Direct account.
We support most common file types, allowing you to upload your company’s key documents. However, you won’t be able to upload executable, compression, audio or video files. Single files larger in size than the maximum file size limit of 5MB will also be prevented from upload.
Our feature rich online document storage area will allow you to easily manage all your company's vital documents.
There are 4 ways to upload company documents:
If you have many documents to add to your Document Library, you can do this quickly by dragging and dropping or emailing multiple files simultaneously.
We have created a flexible system of document tagging that allows you to find any of your documents quickly. You can choose to tag a document to indicate its type, what it’s about and/or link it to the company it relates to. Choose tags from the lists we have provided for you, or create your own bespoke tags. You can also tag multiple documents simultaneously, helping you save time if you have uploaded lots of files.
The ability to search by company, document type, tag or filename means it is always quick and easy to find a document, no matter how many files you have stored in your library.
If multiple people have access to your Inform Direct account, you can control the access different user roles have to the Document Library. Tailor who can see which files for which companies and set the permissions (add files, edit them or remove documents) each user role has. If you have particularly sensitive files stored in your library, you can further restrict access to these.
All your data is safely stored and backed up in the cloud in our database held in our high security data centre. This means that important company documents are not held on your PC, laptop or office server – all of which are vulnerable to data loss or theft. Your data is regularly backed up and all data backups are held in the UK.
