Introducing our award-winning 
Companies House Forms software

TaxCalc Companies House Forms saves time keeping Companies House up to date by filing forms securely online from within TaxCalc.

The software features a library of the most commonly used forms, including managing officers and shareholders, and the annual Confirmation Statement (replacement for the Annual Return).

As with all TaxCalc products, the software is built around SimpleStep® workflows, one for each form, meaning all necessary information is collected in a methodical manner to ensure successful filing.

Unbeatable value

TaxCalc Companies House Forms is sold on an annual licence basis. Usage is allocated to each client as you create forms for them.

The software is available in three sizes, to suit the size of your practice:

  • Unlimited clients £297 + VAT
  • Up to 50 clients £205 + VAT
  • Up to 12 clients £91 + VAT

There are no additional user charges.

To file forms and pay the Confirmation Statement filing fee on behalf of your clients, you will need to set up a credit account with Companies House.

"There's a form for that..."

Our software caters for two approaches of working. The first is to complete a form, which, at point of submission to Companies House, will automatically update client records.

The second approach is that the software helpfully recommends the creation of forms when certain changes are made to client data.

For example, if you appoint a director from within Accounts Production, TaxCalc will recommend the creation of a form.

Integration every step of the way

All of TaxCalc's products are designed to integrate and share data. TaxCalc Companies House Forms is no different.

To facilitate the maintenance of Companies House records, TaxCalc Practice Manager has been updated to include share classes, shareholders, Persons of Significant Control and more.

Data is shared between TaxCalc Companies House Forms and TaxCalc Practice Manager and vice versa.

Fully comprehensive, yet easy to use software

TaxCalc Companies House Forms is a simple and efficient way to keep your clients' statutory reporting
requirements with Companies House up to date.

Software packages designed for you

Whether you're just starting out or are an established firm, we have package sizes to suit – micro, small and unlimited clients.

Straightforward form filling process

As with all TaxCalc products, data is captured through a SimpleStep process. Data is prepopulated with data from TaxCalc Practice Manager.

A second pair of eyes

Prior to filing, whether by paper or online, TaxCalc's Check & Finish process will validate entries made and ensure a successful filing to Companies House.

Intelligent form creation

When you activate TaxCalc Companies House Forms, you'll find your other TaxCalc software will make recommendations for form creation to help you keep client's affairs up to date.

Monitor processing

Many forms require a Companies House member of staff to review and confirm its acceptance. Accordingly, TaxCalc tracks processing and will confirm when the form has been accepted.

TaxCalc Practice Manager updated

Keep client records up to date with new fields in TaxCalc Practice Manager: director digital signatures, share classes, shareholder activities (issue, transfer etc.) and persons of significant control.

Do you need this software to file
accounts from TaxCalc Accounts

No. Unlike some software providers, you do not need this software to file company accounts. In fact, we designed TaxCalc Accounts Production to file accounts directly to Companies House as one of its key features.

How does the licensing model work?

The software is licensed on an annual basis for 12, 50 or unlimited clients. Whenever you create a form for a client, you will allocate one of your client licences to it.

The number of clients allocated to your licence is reset in each licence period, which means that when different clients need forms filing in the second year, you do not need to continue to pay for those you represented in the first.

How many computers can I
install TaxCalc Companies House Forms onto?

TaxCalc Companies House Forms may be installed on a single computer if you have chosen to use the standalone version. For network and cloud customers, there is no limit, although the number of concurrent users will be limited by the licence you purchased..
