Confirmation statement is a compulsory filing required by Companies House. You have 14 days to delivery your confirmation statement with Companies House.
The Confirmation Statement replaces the annual return filing. The confirmation statement is a different document to that of your company tax return and your company accounts.
Confirmation statement provides a summary of information such as your company directors, company secretary (if any), registered office address, single alternative inspection location (SAIL) address (if any), business activity, shareholders, share capital and person with significant control of your company and so on.
Companies house would send out reminders to your company directors if they did not receive your confirmation statement.
The reminders would be sent to your directors through your director’s service address, and to your company registered office address and to the director’s home address registered with Companies House previously. If all theses addresses no longer valid and/or you no longer able to access mails sent there, it is your responsibility to update these addresses with companies house.
Companies House would only sent reminders and letters to your company through these addresses registered with them, they do not do emails for a one time favor nor accept any excuses to have your reminders or letters to be sent to anywhere but not your registered office address.
If you have difficulty contacting your company registered office service provider and you are not able to get your mails forwarded to you, our accountants would be able to help you to change your registered office address and get your authentication code and submit your confirmation statement with Companies House for you.
