‘Register of Companies and Businesses’

We want clients and business owners to be aware of a scam that is currently doing the rounds.
A number of our clients have received correspondence from a company allegedly based in London headed ‘Register of Companies and Businesses’.
The letter states that companies must visit their website – regist.co.uk – to make payment of £190 if they wish for their company to be entered into a ‘Register of Companies and Businesses’. They claim that this is a requirement in accordance with the current ‘Register of Companies and Business’ rules and imply that this register is linked with Companies House.
We are strongly warning businesses against registering on this website as there is no legal requirement nor has it any connections with Companies House.
