For business owners

If you are an entrepreneur or director, Inform Direct makes it easy for you to manage statutory company records, including Companies House filings and updates.

Unique and time-saving features and shortcuts means you can deliver company secretarial actions much faster than with any other system, helping to reduce errors and increase productivity.

Why compliance matters

There are five key reasons why it is important to fulfil your own or yourclients’ company secretarial responsibilities.

Firstly, the Companies House Register provides online accessible data available to view by anyone – including every filing – with an estimated three million visits per month.

Secondly, information from the public record is used by banks and other lenders,  potential suppliers and customers, shareholders and investors.

Thirdly, not filing certain documents is a criminal offence, for which directors can be personally convicted in the criminal courts and individuals can be disqualified as directors.

Fourthly, failure to submit the annual confirmation statement, accounts or notification of a change of registered office to Companies House can each lead to the start of a compulsory strike-off procedure.

Finally, remedial action when something goes wrong can be both time-consuming and costly.

Support all the way

Whether you are a business owner or an accountant, Inform Direct’s expert team are available to help you start out and get the best from the software.
