Filing statutory accounts
If a company’s deadline for filing statutory accounts falls between 27 June 2020 and 5 April 2021, the deadline will automatically be extended by 3 months. This automatic 3-month extension will apply only to those companies that had already applied for a 3-month extension.
Filing a confirmation statement
The deadline for filing a confirmation statement (the statement delivered to Companies House confirming certain changes, including to the company’s share capital and details of its shareholders) has been extended from 14 days to 42 days from the end of the company’s review period. The review period is the 12-month period from the date of the company’s previous filed confirmation statement.
The period permitted to register fixed and floating charges at Companies House for charges created after 6 June 2020 has automatically been extended from 21 days to 31 days, beginning the day after the charge was created.
Extension for other Companies House filings
Companies have been granted additional time to file details of certain events, such as changes to director’s details, changes to Persons with Significant Control details and changes to the company’s registered office address, so companies now have 42 days to file this information.
