Dormant account format


The UK company law required dormant companies to deliver dormant accounts in complaint of Companies Act 2006.

A dormant company account is much simpler form than those of an active company. The dormant account usually excludes a profit and loss account and a director report. Generally, dormant companies are eligible to claim audit exemption and file abbreviated dormant accounts to Companies House.

The format of a dormant company account prepared for filing with Companies House must contain the following information:

  • A balance sheet report

  • A declaration statement on the balance sheet page that for the accounting period ending, for example, 31 March 2014 the company was entitled to exemption from audit under section 480 of the Companies Act 2006 relating to dormant companies.

  • The members have not required the company to obtain an audit of its accounts under section 476 of Companies Act 2006.

  • The directors acknowledged their responsibilities as spelled out in the Companies Act 2006.

  • For small company, the statement of the accounts has been prepared in accordance with the provisions applicable to companies subject to the small companies regime should be included in the balance sheet.

  • Previous year balance sheet balances as comparatives figures.

  • Relevant notes to the balance sheet such as share capital, accounting policy, debtors and creditors.

The directors of dormant companies must be aware that full complete accounts may still be required in addition to the abbreviated dormant accounts for shareholders and members.

Companies House will issue automatic late filing penalty if dormant account is filed late.
