When are my annual accounts due?

Did you know your company is required by law to file accounts with Companies House even if it isn’t trading?

You can find out what date Companies House is expecting your accounts to be made up to and the date your accounts are due to be filed by searching the Companies House register here.

Usually the date private companies are due to file their accounts is 9 months after their year end (or accounting reference date). For example, if your company’s financial year end is 31 March, the accounts must be filed with Companies House no later than 31 December. Please note that in the first accounting period the due date is 21 months from the date of incorporation.

If you change your accounting year end within 3 months of the filing deadline then you will have 3 months from the date of change to file your accounts (except in the first year). It is not possible to change your accounting period end after the due date for the accounts has passed.

At Shaw Gibbs, we recommend that you supply us with your accounting records shortly after the year end has passed. This will allow us to prepare the financial statements well before any deadline. This will mean that the financial information is more up to date and relevant to your decision making and allow for plenty of time to plan for any tax liabilities.
