Many entrepreneurs formed companies just to prevent their desired business names from being registered by other businesses. They keep the companies status as dormant until such date that they are ready for business.
Dormant companies are allowed to file dormant accounts to Companies House as long as there are no significant accounting transactions during the financial year.
Once you started business, your company is no longer dormant. You have to file trading accounts to Companies House. The accounts must be in compliant of Companies Act 2006.
Your company may be able to file abbreviated accounts if it is falls under the small and medium sized companies regime. Abbreviated accounts put less information for public records.
In addition, if your company's sales and business assets are more than audit exemption limits, the directors are required to appoint company auditors and have the accounts audited.
