The New Companies House Bank Account
Companies House has announced that they have new bank details effective from 1 September 2020. This is due to a Companies House change in status from a trading fund to a central government organisation. This has necessitated the introduction of a different type of bank account which come under the Government Banking scheme.
Any letters Companies House sends from 1 September 2020 will include the new bank account details and instructions. Companies House have also updated their bank details in any online guidance and emails.
The old bank account will remain valid and stay open for 6 months to make sure that all customers transition successfully to the new account. The old account will close at the end of February 2021.
