Take steps to avoid company fraud

There have been recent reports that Academies are being subjected to attempts to change registered details at Companies House without their consent.

This is a known form of company fraud. To help combat it, Companies House has introduced the PROOF (PROtected Online Filing) scheme. Organisations that have signed up to this scheme will need to submit their documents online.

Any documents received by Companies House by post will be returned to the filed address. Advice and guidance can be found on the Companies House website together with how to raise such fraud issues with them.
