Companies House to introduce a new WebFiling account

tax accountant thames valley

Companies House will soon be introducing a new WebFiling account that will have more functionality with improved security features. It is the first step in creating a single sign-in across all Companies House services.

The benefits of the new WebFiling account include:

  • Multi-factor authentication.
  • The ability to link your company to your WebFiling account to give you more control over your filings.
  • The ability to digitally authorise people to file on your behalf on WebFiling, and to remove authorisation.
  • The ability to easily see who is digitally authorised to file for your company.
  • An option to sign up for emails to help you with the running of your company.

Once you’ve linked your company to your account, you will no longer need to enter an authentication code every time you file online.

If you own or file on behalf of more than one company, you will be able to manage all your companies from one account.

Once the new account is introduced, you will also be able to digitally authorise yourself and other directors to file for your new company as part of the online incorporation process.
