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