Registering for email reminders from Companies House

How to sign up for our email reminders service which tells you when your company’s accounts and confirmation statements are due.

Benefits of email reminders

Our email reminder service tells you when your company’s accounts and confirmation statements are due by sending you an email.

The service is free, and you can:

  • choose up to 4 people to receive a reminder (including an agent)
  • file your document immediately from a link within the reminder
  • receive reminders more conveniently
  • avoid late filing penalties by filing your accounts on time
  • use less paper, contributing to saving the environment

We’re no longer sending paper reminders by post. Analysis shows email reminders are more successful than paper reminders and users are more likely to file on time.
