Companies House announce accounts filing deadline extension

Companies House, the regulator of limited companies has announced a deadline extension scheme for companies affected by COVID-19 who will struggle to prepare their accounts.

If you think the impact of COVID-19 will cause delays in filing your company accounts, you can apply for an automatic and immediate 3 month extension.

You must apply before your filing deadline.  If you do not apply for the extension, the full penalties for late filing will be payable.
