Company Hijacking

Company Hijacks normally involve fraudsters changing the details of a Company’s Directors and Registered Office address at Companies House. This is easily achieved by the fraudster who simply sends in an appropriate statutory form amending these details to Companies House. These are processed by Companies House without verifying the authorised signature as Companies House does not have any facility to vet authorised signatures.

If you want your Company protecting from this kind of unauthorised attack then you can take advantage of our Company Hijacking service which monitors documents filed at Companies House to ensure that they are authentic.
