Key Once Use Twice

File via HMRC and submit to Companies House at the same time. This service is suitable for small companies with straightforward circumstances.

Software Filing

Some commercially available software packages allow you to file accounts data directly to Companies House.

The Software Filing service is open to everyone but will be of most benefit if you are a high-volume filer and file documents on a daily or weekly basis.
