Technical Difficulties during webfiling payment - then it threw me out.

Webfiling stalled when it came to starting the payment process - no solution offered except send an email to CH - no guidance on what to put in email. No email response. I wish we could do this with a paper form and a cheque - it would be a lot quicker.

Filing Confirmation Statement (former Annual Return)

Filing confirmation statement (former Annual Return) leads to an error message during the log-in. The workaround, as described by Darren (Thank you!), is to use the old website via:
https://ewf-legacy.companieshouse.gov.uk/
I cannot understand why this problem hasn't been solved by Companies House after more than 100 days...

How to Submit Your Company Accounts via the Legacy System and Avoid the Issues with the New One!

Hi All,

The new WebFiling sign in for submitting your accounts is BROKEN. To log in select the forth option down "i need to file a charge (mortgage) document using a lender authentication code."

by selecting this it takes you to the legacy companies house page (the one you will be familar with from last time).

You can now long in with ease using your username and password and then on the next page confirm your location, company number and authorison code.

Then click sign in....

You can now calmly complete your Companies Return and avoid the stress of being logged out of the new system.

Hope this is helpful.

Webfiling issues

Same problems as everyone else, either saying the service is not available or I have no companies, or the company details being input is wrong... very frustrating!!!! I actually telephoned Companies House who deny any knowledge of any Webfiling issues.. the adviser proceeded to tell me to login with older links but they just redirected me to latest link:

Still can't 'Web File' anything !!

Can't log in or I have no companies registered (I have over 400!) or logs in then logs out or doesn't recognise the co no or keep getting Sorry there is a problem with this service! Since the change over it has been absolute rubbish. Response from Co House when you report it 'we are working on fixing the issues' !! FYI it seems to work ok between 7am and 8.30 am - perhaps I should change to a night shift.
