What’s a Confirmation Statement and when’s the filing deadline?
You need to check that the information Companies House has about your company is correct every year. This is called a Confirmation Statement (previously an Annual Return).
It contains the following information:
- The details of your registered office, directors, secretary and the address where you keep your records
- Your statement of capital and shareholder information if your company has shares
- Your SIC code (the number that identifies what your company does)
- Your register of ‘People with Significant Control’ (PSC) – you’ll need to include this the first time you file a confirmation statement.
The filing date is usually a year after either:
- The date your company incorporated
- The date you filed your last annual return or confirmation statement
You can file your confirmation statement up to 14 days after the due date. You can be fined up to £5,000 and your company may be struck off if you don’t send your Confirmation Statement.
