Companies House have urged businesses / agents to file accounts due, by the end of September allowing plenty of time before the deadline. All limited companies, whether they trade or not, must deliver annual accounts to Companies House each year. This includes dormant companies.

It is important to remain compliant and late filing could affect a company. Missing a filing deadline could also affect a directors credit score or access to finance. There is also then a risk of financial penalties and legal consequences – including a criminal record, a fine or disqualification.

Companies House states, that even if an accountant / agent files a company’s accounts on a directors behalf, it’s still the directors responsibility, to make sure they’re filed on time.

Companies House has also shared information on:

  • filing online
  • software filing
  • avoiding rejections
  • guidance and support.
