When making payments to Companies House by bank transfer (BACS), you will now need to use their new bank account details.

Companies House’s change in status from a trading fund to a central government organisation has given rise to the change to a different type of bank account.

As such they are required to use bank accounts that come under the Government Banking scheme.

For those who need to make a BACS payment, any letters they send to you will include their new bank account details and instructions on how to pay Companies House. Companies House have also updated their bank details in any online guidance and emails.

Companies House’s old bank account will stay open for 6 months to make sure that all users transition successfully to the new account. The old account will close at the end of February 2021.
