Only the Cardiff office is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to receive documents delivered by hand or post. The London and Edinburgh offices have a letterbox for out of hours deliveries, but the Belfast office doesn’t. Find out how to get to our offices.
Accounts must be delivered to Companies House by their due date. Delays in transit won't be accepted as an excuse for late delivery.
Applications for certified copies
We will try to process all certified copy applications as normal. But we can’t be held accountable for any delays in receiving applications due to holiday post times.
It won’t be possible to process and issue same day certified copies or certificates on Friday 23 December or Friday 30 December, due to the Royal Mail early collection schedule.
Applications for ‘same day’ incorporation and changes of name
All offices will have an earlier cut-off point of 11am for same day services on 23 December and 30 December.
If you have any queries regarding this information please call us on 0303 1234 500 or email email@example.com.
Travelling to the London office on New Year’s Eve
Due to the New Year’s celebrations organised by Westminster Council all roads surrounding the office including Victoria Street and Westminster Bridge will be closed from 2pm. Read further information on the New Year’s Eve road closures.
