Essentially, a confirmation statement is there to make sure that all the details that Companies Houses has about your business are all correct and up to date. So, it’s important to know what you need to do and when you need to do it when it comes to a Companies House Confirmation Statement.
Limited companies and limited liability partnerships are required by law to send off their confirmation statement every 12 months at the very least – even if the company is dormant!
Do be aware that even if nothing has changed, you still need to verify that all the information is still correct.
How to file your confirmation statement form
The easiest way to file your confirmation statement is to complete the confirmation statement online form, as this is the quickest way to send Companies House the information.
Filing online has a small fee of £13, however filing a paper form will cost you £40.
If you want to know what information Companies House already has filed for your business beforehand, you can search for your business using the Companies House Service.
When should you send your confirmation statement?
Companies House request a confirmation statement to be sent to them once a year, within 14 days of the end of your review period.
What happens if you haven’t sent your confirmation statement on time?
If your confirmation statement is overdue or you have forgotten about it, there is a risk that your company and its officers could face prosecution, leading to your company being struck off the register.
