We’re giving users more flexibility to update transactions you’ve already completed in Inform Direct, to correct certain errors on share transfers and allotments or remove transfers that didn’t proceed. This update allows you to do the following in the software:

  • Update share allotment and transfer dates
  • Update share allotment and transfer consideration amounts
  • Remove share transfers

Please remember that making such changes to share allotments or transfers in prior (completed) confirmation periods may require you to refile the now incorrect confirmation statements already filed at Companies House.

Inform Direct now allows you to file Micro Entity accounts with Companies House. As a subscriber this is all part of your great value subscription.

Removing a share transfer

Sometimes it happens. With all the best intentions, even after getting it checked by using the approval process – a mistake is made or the transfer doesn’t happen. Well, now you will be able to remove the transfer and re-do it correctly.

You just need to identify the transfer from the ‘View transactions’ screen and choose the option to ‘Remove transfer’.

Remove Transfer

Then just confirm that you do want to remove the transfer.

It is possible to remove transfers as they are not sent to Companies House until the next confirmation statement is filed. However, if you are cancelling a transfer that occurred in a period already covered by a confirmation statement then you may need to re-file it.


Amending the date or consideration of a share transfer or allotment

Similar to removing a transfer, it is now possible to edit the date and consideration of a share transfer or allotment. These options are also available from the ‘View transactions’ screen.

All you need to do is select the action you want to perform:

  • Edit amount payable
  • Edit date of transfer
  • Edit date of allotment

Then enter the correct date or amount payable and confirm the change.
