This covers situations where information is invalid or ineffective, delivered without the authority of the company or factually inaccurate or derived from something factually inaccurate or forged. There is also a provision to allow Companies House to remove an address which has been used as a company’s registered office where she is satisfied that a company is not authorised to use that address.</p><p> </p><p>However, Companies House cannot identify which of these are due solely to cases of fraud.</p><p> </p>
