Companies House - extension for filing accounts
Companies House has issued guidance on how to apply for more time to file your company's accounts.
The guidance states that if your accounts will be late because your company is affected by COVID-19, and your filing deadline has not yet passed, you can apply for an automatic and immediate 3 month extension to file your accounts. If you do not apply for an extension an automatic penalty will be imposed if your accounts are filed late.
Please note that companies which have extended their filing deadline may not be eligible for an extension. Those that have shortened their accounting reference period may not be eligible either.
