Companies House Filing Deadlines
If you cannot file your company’s accounts on time due to COVID-19 then an application can be made to extend the period allowed for filing. If an extension is not requested before the filing date and you are late in filing then the normal penalty regime will apply. It is important to make your application ahead of the deadline.
The government has set up a link for you to make the application however today it has been reported to us that client’s passwords are not being accepted by the Companies House online application. (Passwords have been accepted for other uses on Companies House site.). Our suggestion would be to email Companies House with your request for the extension together with your reason for the request. This can be followed up with a phone call and the online application if and when the link works.
