Has Coronavirus Affected your Company – Government advice for Annual Account Filing

09-Apr-2020

 

If Coronavirus (COVID-19) has affected your company and you need more time to file your accounts, you should act before your filing deadline.

All companies must send their accounts, reports and confirmation statements to Companies House every year. If a company's accounts are filed late, the law imposes an automatic penalty. Your company should take appropriate measures to ensure accounts are filed on time.

You should also file your accounts online if you're able to. If, immediately before the filing deadline, it becomes apparent that accounts will not be filed on time due to your company being affected by Coronavirus (COVID-19), you may make an application to extend the period allowed for filing.

If you do not apply for an extension and your accounts have been filed late, an automatic penalty will be imposed. The registrar has very limited discretion not to collect a penalty.

For guidance please follow any of the links below:

That said, filing deadlines can be extended as long as you ask for an extension on your time before your Filing Deadline. Follow the link before for more info:
