Companies House has developed and launched a new temporary online service to upload and send completed forms during the Coronavirus outbreak. The online service was first launched at the beginning of June. The latest release of the upload a document service was issued on 6 July and now allows users to upload more form types, including Scottish limited and qualifying partnerships, articles and resolutions. This temporary service is designed for paper forms that could previously only be sent by post or delivered in person to Companies House.
The main categories of forms that the temporary online service relate to:
- Scottish limited partnership forms
- Scottish qualifying partnership forms
- Registrar's powers
- RP forms
- Change of constitution
- Resolutions in relation to change of constitution (CC) forms
- Articles in relation to change of constitution (CC) forms
Companies House is working on a new release to allow a large number of insolvency forms to be submitted via the upload service in the coming weeks.
The service is not available nor intended for the large number of Companies House documents that were already accepted online before the pandemic began. This includes documents relating to filing accounts, filing a confirmation statement, making changes to a company and closing a company.
