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.

Companies House webfiling service
Managed to login Companies House webfiling service after changing password again, only to be thrown out as I selected company to file confirmation statement. This "new" service is really poor.

Glitchy and unpatched
The new webfiling is so glitchy. Doesn't let you log in half the time, constant authentication needed, shows 0 companies despite yesterday showing the full number. Told their support a month ago and no change.

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.

Web filing - 10 days and still not able to login
10 days in a row cannot login fully to complete my web filing, always the same: password accepted and 2FA code sent and entered - a long pause and 'Sorry, there is a problem with the service'. Email to their helpdesk was no help as they just said I need to set up an account. I already have one.

Problems logging in all day long; Feb. 28, 2023.
I've been trying to log in and file all day long...
Same message over and over: "Problems... try again later..."
Got in once. But towards the end of filing it just kicked me out!
Failed to log in until midnight. Saved all the screenshots of log-in attempts...

Wrong addresses showing for company
Companies House is showing some odd addresses for one of my client companies, and when I tried to correct them, the correct addresses wouldn't 'stick'. I am the only person who makes adjustments to the webfiling, so I can't understand what is going on.
