Fraud Protection - Proof Scheme

Fraud Protection To protect your important company data and information from fraudsters, I-Support Formations offers fraud protection as part of the online company formation process. We will register you with the Conpanies House Proof (PROtected Online Filing) Scheme. Registering your company for Proof means that Companies House will stop accepting paper forms. Company hijacks normally involve fraudsters changing the details of a company’s directors and registered office using certain paper forms. The forms covered by the fraud protection scheme are:   Appointments Terminations Change of Particulars (Company Officers) Change of Registered Office Address Annual Return Once you are protected, Companies House will normally reject any paper versions of these forms and send them back to the registered office address. This helps to ensure that any changes requested have been made by the company itself.
