The guidance explains the PROOF service.
This is a free service that lets you protect your company from unauthorised changes to your records. It prevents the filing of certain paper forms, including:
- Changes to your registered office address
- Changes to your officers (appointments, resignations or personal details)
- Changes to your company name by special resolution
It’s important that your company’s records are correct because they’re sometimes used to check its legitimacy if you apply for a loan.
Fraudsters are known to hijack a company by changing the details of the company’s directors and registered office. This leaves the company vulnerable to further fraud.
