Settle your unpaid late filing penalty on time is important to avoid further legal costs added to it.
You receive a late filing penalty from Companies House because your company accounts were filed late and for whatever reason your late filing penalty is not paid on time, Companies House will take action against you. They will ask their debt collectors to collect the debt from you.
If you are not happy with the situation, the matter will be referred to the County Court or Sheriff Court. Companies House may also seek to recover the unpaid late filing penalty and their legal costs if the court finds in favour of The Registrar.
The late filing penalty notice you received gives details of the penalty imposed on your limited company or limited liability partnership such as the filing due date and the date of Companies House actually your company accounts.
