Companies House filing fees increase
29/02/2024

Companies House has announced that some of their fees will be changing from 1 May 2024. The last change in fees was April 2016. 

The 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. 

As The Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency (ECCT) Bill has moved through Parliament, concerns had been raised on the current fee structure. Companies House say that these changes to the fees charged will ensure adequate funding going forward to recover costs incurred as well as to help fund the cost of the new powers introduced as part of the ECCT Bill. 

Prices shown below are some of the main changes from 1 May 2024: 

Transaction New fee Current fee

Incorporation (same day) Software £78 £30
