What is Fraud Protection?
Signatures on paper documents are not fully checked by Companies House therefore forms and paper documents can be signed illegally by fraudsters and filed at Companies House enabling them to change Directors, Shareholders and the Registered Office without you knowing.
The Fraud Protection service helps to protect your company from Fraudsters.
This service will prevent most paper documents from being filed for your company.
Forms can only be filed electronically using your own unique code.
Every time a document is filed for your company you will also receive an email notification making you aware of any changes made.
The fraud protection covers all forms that are filed at Companies House.
By registering your company for Fraud Protection this will ensure you know about any changes that are being made, to your company, at Companies House.
