BEWARE! Payment scam from www.e-record.co.uk
It has come to our attention that some companies are being targeted with a scam from www.e-record.co.uk – particularly newly formed companies.
An official looking letter is received requesting payment in order to be entered in e-record.co.uk following an entry being made at Companies House. It threatens that a lack of payment will result in a lack of entry in the e-record.co.uk.
This has nothing to do with Companies House, you do not need to pay this and there is no benefit whatsoever in paying it. There is absolutely no requirement to pay this charge or to be listed on that registry.
If you ever receive a payment request that you are suspicious about contact either HMRC or Companies House directly to confirm with them whether or not it is genuine.
Don’t be caught out!
