Correcting Companies House filing errors
As it is the duty of the Director(s) to ensure that the public records are accurate, what can be done if a simple filing error is made (e.g. persons date of birth). The powers of the registrar allow amendments to be made using forms RP01 to RP07, depending on the type of amendment to be made. Below is a guide to the various forms.
RP01 - Replace a document not meeting requirements
RP02 - Apply for rectification by the registrar of companies
RP03 - Apply for rectification of a change of registered address
RP03 - Object to a request to rectify the register
RP04 - File a second filing of a document previously delivered
RP CH01 - Correct a director's date of birth
RP06 - Apply to remove material about a director
RP07 - Apply to change a company's disputed registered office address
Further provisions relate to annual accounting errors, and replacement accounts can be made under the Companies (Revision of Defective Accounts and Reports) Regulations 2008. Other amendments can be made using a Court Order.
