Accounts Filing Extension

From the 25 March 2020 companies will be able to apply for a 3 month extension for filing their accounts with Companies House.  This is another welcomed measure to support businesses impacted by Covid-19.  It is important to note that you must apply for the 3 month extension before your filing deadline to avoid penalties. Those citing issues around COVID-19 will be automatically and immediately granted an extension.

Applications can be made through a fast-tracked online system.  The process which is quick and easy should take about 15 minutes to complete. Full guidance can be found on the government site.

Companies who have already extended their filing deadline or shortened their accounting reference period may not be eligible for the extension.
