Changes to Companies House Fees
23/05/2024

There have been a number of significant changes in Companies House fees. These changes took effect on 1 May 2024. The last significant change in fees occurred in April 2016. 

The new fees have been calculated on a ‘cost recovery’ basis meaning that the fees are calculated based on what it costs to provide the services in question. Companies House state that they do not make a profit on their fees. 

Companies House guidance entitled Companies House fees has been updated to reflect all the changes. Companies House have said that the new fees will help ensure adequate funding going forward to recover costs incurred as well as to help fund the cost of new powers introduced as part of The Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency (ECCT) Bill.
