New Companies House website

New Companies House website

I have just logged on to the Companies House website - what a change. I think that it looks much more professional. All I need to do now is find where all the frequently used stuff is now located.

Looks good

I agree - it looks good.

If you use their incorporation service, does anyone know if the post or e-mail the certificate of incorporation to you?

Just used the service to form a company and the narrative 'your incorporation certificate and Memorandum of Association will be attached to the acceptance email' was in the confirmation e-mail.

So, sounds like a copy of the certificate won't be posted.

I'll let you know.

One page (nearly)

They've changed ONE page (maybe a few more; but a lot is the same if you follow the links).

Change for the sake of change? Did they just change some of the colours to make it more drab?

Excellent service

Just used incorporation service and got email confirmation next day.  Client thinks I'm the bees knees!  Slight glitch in that email said Cof I attached, but it wasn't. However, still easy enough to download.  I doubt that anything will be sent snail mail as everything points to attachments and downloads.

Download only

As 'diannepayne' commented - certificate was available for download only.

But, v easy - always used on-line incorporation agents before, won't now as I save/earn another £15 using CH.

Cert of Inc

I've used their service for a few incorporations now - must say I (and more particularly MY CLIENTS) have been greatly impressed! An easy fee earner for simple incorporations.

The Cert of Inc is emailed for you to print yourself - I have some ivory/cream card so when I produce the printed certificate, it looks just like the "original" ones.

I agree the new site has a

I agree the new site has a modern feel and looks more professional, however it appears it's only the home page that has changed, as the main pages - company search and company filing still look and operate the same as before.

iXBRL Accounts

It may look nice and new, but I wish they would have spent the money towards the easy filing of iXBRL accounts
