    Old tenants registering company at old address

    After some aadvice on the following:

    Old tenants moved out at the end of November last year.

    The property has been empty for roughly two months while I've been redocorating and waiting for some new tenants.

    Just over a week ago I recieved some letters about a company being registered at the property address following that a letter from the HMRC about corporation tax.

    Looking into it at the companies wharehouse it looks like it is the old tenants, with a director registered to my property and a secratery at their new address.

    Should I be worried?

    No, you should not be too worried, but if Director is registered at
    your address, owes money somewhere, then eventualy the debt
    collectors will be knocking on the door of your new tenants, calling
    them liars if they say they are not who the debt collector is asking
    for.
    Do you want that to happen ?

    Best to reply to HMRC, stating registered number of
    business and that the Director was a sub-tenant in a private house,
    did not have your permission to register or carry out any business
    from or in connection with your address, and Director has now
    moved out of the registered private property.

    Suggest they write to the Company Secretary, at xx high street xx
    who will know the correct address of the missing director.
    I remember they have 14 days to advise of change of particulars.

    So long as you do above, then maybe no debt colectors, but
    if Director refuses to notify Companies house of change of
    address, then the public can sometimes see that address and
    cold calling / letters may continue to come.
    You can do no more than inform HMRC AND Companies house
    and hope all is well in the future.

    R.a.M.

      Call police, 'escort' them out of the land, press charges.

      Yes, but company house cannot alter their public records of company registered address based on this. And I think the same applies for Director's address.

        Correct.
        But then Companies house and HMRC have been informed by r0b
        that the address on file is not valid, and in this case the Co.Sec
        can be contacted at the new address, and the Co. Sec will
        know the new address of the Director.

        Job done.

          I spoke to the Companies house and they said to send them in a email so they could start an investigation.

          Secondly I spoke to a friend who used to work at the HMRC and I was told to just ring up so they have it on record then they would chase it from there.

            You do realise opening other peoples mail is against the law! Do you not have a forwarding address or details of your old tennant?

              All I saw was the address the name of the dodgy company was not visible through the transparent section.....which was lucky......the question is the tenant had forwarded their mail on and knew their new address so why register a company at their old address two months after having moved?

                msec, do you actually live in the real world?
                I have had a similar problem: the records can only be amended by the company themselves but there is good advice here re notifying companies house etc.
