The online service uses Secure Socket Layer (128-bit SSL) protocol, which is the standard mechanism, used by web browsers to encrypt information. When you enter the service, the SSL encrypts all the information you enter before sending it to us. This ensures that no-one can intercept and read your details.

Use of a Credit or Debit Card

When I pay a filing fee on WebFiling how do I know my Payment Card information will be safe?

Companies House uses Barclays SmartPay, a secure payment gateway, for collection of your card details. All the information you supply on the Payment screen (including credit and debit card numbers) is encrypted.

The information is then taken off the internet and passed to the bank on a private link.
