Company Details

Here's where to add and edit important information such as your business's name, address and registered numbers, including tax numbers.

Select Settings, then choose Company Details.

Here you can see the company type you've set for your business, and the address details you've put in. You can change your address details but please check this out if you need to use a different company type, for example if you were a sole trader and are now going to trade through a limited company.

You would also put here any registered numbers your business has.

If your business is a limited company or limited liability partnership, you need to make sure you include your company or LLP registration number here, because it's a legal requirement to display this on your invoices. This number will be on your certificate of incorporation from Companies House. If you can't find your certificate of incorporation, go to the Companies House website and click 'Find Company Information', and put in your company or LLP's registered name. The website will give you your number.

If you're running a payroll and filing it through FreeAgent using RTI, then you must include here your business's PAYE and Accounts Office references. You'll find these on a letter from HMRC like this.

You also need to include your business's tax reference number if you are filing payroll forms through FreeAgent.

For limited companies like this one, you need to look for the 10-digit corporation tax reference number on letters from HMRC. Make sure you use a corporation tax reference and notice which of the numbers I've taken from this reference - the two blocks of five numbers, written as a 10-digit number.

If your business is a partnership and you are filing RTI because you have employees as well as partners, use the partnership's 10-digit Unique Tax Reference (UTR) which will be on letters from HMRC. Again, make sure you use the partnership's reference rather than either of the partners' own UTRs.

If you are a sole trader with employees, fill in here your own 10-digit UTR.

Finally at the bottom of the page you can fill in your contact information, if you wish, plus more detail about your business type. Click 'Save Changes' once you have finished on the page.
