Business Fraud Protection

Combat company fraud by receiving an email alert whenever a change is made to your business,

Anti-fraud services are essential to any business. They keep your operations running without disruption or damage. Combat business fraud by receiving an email alert from Companies MadeSimple whenever a change is made to your business, whether this was with your consent - or, more critically - not. 

Companies House, the UK’s registrar of all companies, accepts documents in ‘good faith.’ This means that someone can make any change to your business without your permission or knowledge. 

As part of our extensive fraud prevention services, we will alert you to any changes as soon as they are made, allowing you to act immediately!

Our process is as follows:

  1. A change, unexpected or otherwise, is made to your business through Companies House. 
  2. We are notified of this change.
  3. We send you an email informing you of this change immediately! This allows you to act as soon as possible to rectify any fraudulent activity. 

A quick report makes a big difference when it comes to fraud protection. We email you about changes to director appointments and resignations, changes to your registered office and company name, your share capital amendments, company closures, filed annual accounts, and more.

Whenever a change is made to your limited company we’ll email you a notification of that update. If the change was consensual, great, you’ve got email confirmation of that change. If however, it wasn’t consensual, you can report and deal with the fraudulent activity quickly to ensure minimal damage is done.

We’ll email you about:

Company credit reports allow you to further investigate potential fraudulent activity. For example, if a director were appointed without your consent, a report would give you more information about that director.

They’re perfect if you’re about to enter into a business relationship with another business, whether as a seller, customer or in a partnership.
