September is always a busy time with many companies due to file accounts with Companies House before the end of the month.
Companies House is continuing to follow government guidance for working safely during coronavirus (COVID-19). This means it could take longer than usual to process paper documents sent by post.
Companies House online services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – and there are inbuilt checks to help businesses avoid mistakes.
It can take as little as 15 minutes from start to finish and Companies House will let you know your accounts have been delivered on time. They will send you an email to confirm they have received your accounts, and another email when they have registered them.
Companies House advise that you should only send paper accounts if your company cannot file online.
If you need to file your accounts on paper, these should send be sent to Companies House before the deadline.
You must file accounts even if your company is dormant or not trading.
