How do I change a SIC code?


Our limited company has got a few different areas of business, and so we’ve always had three sic codes. But we’re now dropping one, and would like to add another. How are we supposed to go about making such a change?



You can have up to four standard industrial classification (SIC) codes to describe what your company does. If you want to change or add a new SIC code after incorporation, you have to file an annual return at Companies House. You can either file a return early or simply wait until the due date of your next annual return.
