Contact Companies House

Contact Companies House if you have any questions about UK company incorporation procedure and legal filings requirements. They are the governing body for businesses trading as limited companies and partnerships in the United Kingdom. Broadly, they administer and maintain public records of private and public limited companies. In addition, they also administer statutory filing of limited liabilities partnerships. In other words, they make sure companies and partnerships submit their Confirmation Statement, annual accounts and other compulsory legal documents with them on time for public record.

Generally, your company and limited liability partnership must submit the following documents to the Registrar of Companies and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) every year. There is no exception to a dormant company and a non-trading company. Both types of these companies must submit accounts and also file their Confirmation statement.

In addition, all your companies and partnerships’legal documents must also comply with the Companies Act 2006.

If you are not familiar with the UK company law (the Companies Act 2006), it is best to use a firm of accountants to take care of your UK company’s filings for you. This would allow you to focus on your business rather than stress about how to do this or that to maintain your UK company. Another thing is your accountant can also help you to avoid the late filing penalty and fines from Companies House. Usually, they would send you reminders when your UK company’s filings become due.
