Will I get a copy of my incorporation certificate, docs and company books? Yes. The incorporation documents will all be automatically saved in the Document Store in Kudocs – ready for you to review them. Once the company is incorporated Kudocs automatically created your company books, first share certificates and stakeholder information based on the incorporation. We don’t send you anything in paper – there’s no need. It’s all stored securely in the cloud. But you can download any of it when you want.
Will I be sent my Authentication Code once the company is incorporated? Companies House will still send you this code in the post, but it will be immediately available after incorporation to Admin users. It is stored in your company settings (Settings > Company) page in Kudocs. Hopefully you won’t need it as Kudocs can do all your filings for you, but it’s there if you do!
Do I need and where do I find my Authentication Code once I have incorporated my company? You don’t need it to use Kudocs. Once incorporated, it will be stored in the system automatically to enable us to file information on your behalf. There may be (rare) occasions when you need to it contact Companies House directly, so you can log in and obtain it when you need it. You need to have admin user rights and then just go to Settings > Company.
