Companies House Filing Deadlines

Companies and other types of business registered at Companies House will get more time to file accounts due to Coronavirus.

If your company is eligible, they will update your filing deadline automatically. You do not need to apply for an extension.

Details

On 25 June 2020, the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 (the Act) received royal assent. It came into force on 26 June 2020.

The measures introduced by the Act will relieve the burden on businesses during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and allow them to focus all their efforts on continuing to operate.

How long is the extension?

The guidance does not explicitly say how long, however, based on review of a number of companies it looks as though the extension period is for 3 months.

How do I know if my company is eligible?

Simply click here, search your company name, and look at the accounts due date.

Ordinarily the due date is 9 months after the year end, but eligible companies will now have 12 months following the year end to file the accounts.
