Formations Direct, like many other businesses, has implemented processes for our staff to Work from Home. We will endeavour to continue to provide the range of services that you are accustomed to, but some services have become unavailable or limited due to COVID-19. Please read on for Companies House, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and our own office updates:
Companies House Update
Companies House has also implemented Work from Home measures and we can still form companies as per usual, with the exception of the same day service, which is unavailable until further notice.
Companies House have also just announced that as of 25th March 2020, businesses will be able to apply for a 3-month extension on filing their accounts. All companies who apply for an extension as a result of COVID-19 will automatically be granted the extension without needing to provide evidence. Further information can be found here.
Apostille & Legalisation Services
We are currently unable to provide Apostille and Legalisation services as the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has stopped legalising documents as from the Prime Minister’s speech of the 23rd March 2020.
Formations Formations Direct Service Update
We will continue to provide our company services as per usual however we ask for your understanding and support with the following.
- Hard copy documents may take longer than usual to be received in the post; please make us aware at the time of placing an order if anything is particularly urgent, or if you would like digital copies.
- Please email queries, rather than phone, to the relevant department where possible, and your contact will respond as soon as possible.
We will continue to update you should any of our services change, in particular where we are dependent on Companies House.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you need advice on any of our services.
We sincerely hope you are keeping well in this disquieting time.
Divisional Managing Director
