Symbols in the WebCHeck Service

When looking at the filing history of the company you will notice symbols.  Below is a brief outline of the meaning of the image icons.

New Folder Icon There are transactions associated with the main document which cannot be ordered independently. There is no additional charge for the extra document(s).
New Document Icon Document has arrived but is not yet available. Once the document has been scanned and the red highlight has been removed it will be possible to order the document. The 'document available' icon will then display together with a tick box.
Information Icon Indicates model articles have been adopted under the 2006 Act, either in entirety or with amended provisions. These can be accessed from the Companies House website by clicking on the model articles description or the green information icon.
Green Notebook Icon Document containing the latest statement of capital.


Using the monitor service within WebCHeck allows you to keep an eye on any company on the public register, including your own company and 'monitor' what information has been sent to Companies House. Just register your email address, and details of the companies and the information you are interested in. As soon as the information is registered and is live on the public register, the system will recognise your interest and send you an email notification. You can then decide whether you wish to order the information. The choice is yours.

Disqualified Directors

You can easily access information about disqualified directors via WebCHeck. Simply enter the name of the director you wish to search, view the list of names matching or similar to the one you have entered. Click on the name of the individual whose details you wish to view.

Service operating hours are 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Companies Act 2006

The new Companies Act has arrived.  This has had an effect on the way information is displayed on the WebCHeck service.  As you are using the service you will find the Help Text holds a wealth of valuable information that will assist with your experience.
