Companies House Filing Deadlines

By Clare Rooney

A reminder that in light of the coronavirus pandemic, companies and other business registered at Companies House have been granted certain extensions to their filing deadlines.

Confirmation Statements

There has been an automatic extension to the deadline for filing confirmation statements, from 14 days after the end of the confirmation period, to 42 days after the end of the confirmation period. The extension does not apply where the end of the confirmation period falls on 6 April 2021 or later.

Accounts

The filing deadline for private limited companies and LLPs with filing deadlines falling between 27 June 2020 and 5 April 2021 was extended from 9 months after their accounting reference date to 12 months after their accounting reference date, unless they have already been granted an extension or shortened their accounting reference period.

The filing deadline for public limited companies with filing deadlines falling between 27 June 2020 and 5 April 2021 was extended from 6 months after their accounting reference date to 9 months after their accounting reference date, unless they have already been granted an extension or shortened their accounting reference period.

You can check your new filing deadline on Companies House service.

Event-driven filings

The period allowed to deliver details of changes to the company, e.g. officers of the companies and people with significant control,  registered office address etc., where the circumstances giving rise to a notifiable change happened on or before 5 April 2021 has been increased to 42 days.

For further details, please refer to the government guidance.
