Dormant company

 

A company is regarded as being dormant in any accounting period when there is no significant accounting transaction has taken place. A dormant company is therefore a company that does not trade. It is important to note that a non-trading company will not always be dormant.

A significant accounting transaction is defined as any transaction required to be entered in the company’s accounting records other than taking of shares in the company by a subscriber under the company’s memorandum and the payment of fees necessary to maintain the records of a company with Companies House such as change of name, re-registration, late filing penalty and a confirmation statement filing fee.

If the company has entered into an agency agreement, the details of the agreement and the transactions undertaken should be referred to an appropriate advisor when determining whether the company is indeed dormant.
