Accounts Late Filing Penalty

 

Delivery of accounts to Companies House

Many people think that a non-trading company or a dormant company does not have to deliver accounts to companies House because the company has nothing to show the public. In accordance to Companies Act, all limited companies including dormant and company that has not been traded are legally required to deliver annual accounts with the Registrar of Companies by the due date.

It is important you put together the books and records and send it to your accountants within reasonable time to prepare your company annual accounts. Failure to do so, the company will have to pay late filing penalty. If you are not sure your company accounts filing due date, you can check it at Companies house website. www.companieshouse.gov.uk

It is important to note that a late filing penalty is automatically sent to your company registered office even if the accounts are filed just one day late.

Avoid paying late filing penalty

The benefits of preparing your annual accounts soon after the accounting year end allow you to assess the performance of your company in that year and set your goals for the future.In addition, your accountants will be able to advice you the corporation tax payable to HM Revenue and Customs from the accounts prepared so that you know how much cash to put aside for tax bill.

There are some tips on how to avoid late filing penalty may be of interest to you.
