Companies House Email Reminder Service – Sign Up NowWritten on November 17, 2020 by Kirk Rice LLP

Companies House will no longer be sending paper reminders to a company’s registered office address, which remind the director(s) or members about important deadlines, such as accounts and confirmation statement filings. It is important that you now sign up for Companies House email reminders service.

If your registered office address is our address and we already complete your accounts and confirmation statement, you do not need to worry, as we already have our own internal systems to monitor these deadlines, and much more, for you.

If you complete some of this work yourself and rely on receiving paper reminders from Companies, or just like to monitor your own deadlines, you can sign up to Companies House email reminder service.

Benefits of email reminders

The Companies House email reminder service tells you when your company’s accounts and confirmation statements are due by sending you an email.

The service is free, and you can:

  • choose up to 4 people to receive a reminder (including an agent)
  • file your document immediately from a link within the reminder
  • receive reminders more conveniently
  • avoid late filing penalties by filing your accounts on time
  • use less paper, contributing to saving the environment

They are no longer sending paper reminders by post. Analysis shows email reminders are more successful than paper reminders and users are more likely to file on time.

How to register

  1. Sign into the Companies House online filing service. New users will need to register an account
  2. Select ‘Get email reminders’ from your company overview screen
  3. Slick ‘Add an email address’
  4. Enter your email address (a maximum of 4 per company)
  5. Click the link in the email Companies House sends you to validate your email address
  6. Agree to the terms of operation

Companies House will send you an email  when you have successfully joined the reminder service.
