It has been reported that customers who use BACS to make payments to Companies House will need to use the new Companies House bank account details from 1 September 2020.
The change in status for Companies House from a trading fund to a central government organisation means that they are changing the type of bank account. Companies House must now use a bank account which is under the Government Banking scheme.
