Many people are unaware that LLP is liable to pay late filing penalty if their accounts are delivered late to Companies House. LLP in this article refers to Limited Liability Partnership registered under the UK company law.
How to avoid LLP late filing penalty?
Companies House website publishes your LLP filing deadlines for Annual Return and year end accounts. If you do not remember your LLP legal filing deadlines, you may find out from Companies House website at www.companieshouse.gov.uk.
Mark your diary or calendar to remind you in good time of your LLP filing deadlines and also factor in the time to gather all the information and accounting records for your accountants to prepare the accounts.
Companies House also sends reminders to your LLP registered office address. It is important that you can access to mails send to the registered office address. If you have problems getting mails sent there, please contact our London accountants to help you to change your LLP registered office address at Companies House.
Sending your LLP accounts by post
Allow enough time to ensure that your LLP accounts reach Companies House before the filing due date. Please be informed that if filing deadline expires on a Sunday or Bank Holiday the law still requires accounts to be filed by the due date.
If you are using UK post office or Royal mail service, please note that First-class does not guarantee next day delivery, so please consider guaranteed methods of delivery to ensure your accounts arrive on time. Your LLP is liable to pay late filing penalty even if your accounts is delayed by the post service.
