Changing Your Company Authentication Code


Changing Your Company Companies House Authentication CodeLast Updated: 05/09/2014

Do you administer a number of Limited Companies? Do you find keeping a record of each company’s web-filing authentication code a bit of a nuisance? Did you know that you can change your authentication code for each of your companies to one standard code? Here’s how:

Login at Companies House (or register if you’ve not yet done so).

Choose the company type; enter the company number and the current authentication code (for the company that you are changing the code for).

Select “Company registration details”.

• Select “Change the Company Authentication Code”.

• You will then be prompted to enter a new 6 character code of your choice. For security purposes make sure your code is not obvious.

• Follow the same process for each company. The code is normally changed within a few hours.
