What can I do to protect my ltd company against fraud?

Companies House estimates that between 50-100 cases of corporate fraud occur each month. For companies that are worried about company ‘Hijacking’ (e.g. where a fraudster changes your company’s Registered Office Address without your consent and orders goods they have no intention of paying for using the name of the company), you may opt in to Companies House ‘Proof’ scheme. This scheme enables the company to file all documents by electronic means only (except in certain circumstances. e.g. changing the company name).

If you prefer to file documents using the paper forms, or would like added peace of mind, we offer our ‘Anti-Hijacking’ service, charged at £26 pear year. On subscribing to this service, we will notify you by email as soon as any forms have been filed for your company, whether or not they were filed on paper. This service also enables you to ensure that forms you have sent to Companies House by post are received and have not gone astray.
