The increase to Companies House fees: What you need to know


As of 1st May 2024, Companies House has implemented revised fees, marking a significant change in the cost structure for various services.

This adjustment stems from the Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency (ECCT) Act, introducing measures that inevitably increase operational costs for Companies House.

Understanding the impact

The fee revisions encompass a range of services, each carrying its own implications for businesses.

Notably, the fee for an annual confirmation statement, when submitted digitally, has surged to £34, compared to the previous rate of £13.

This increase represents a substantial adjustment and demands careful consideration from businesses, especially those accustomed to the previous fee structure.

Strategic considerations

Given the recent changes, businesses are urged to assess their filing schedules and plan accordingly.
