Due to the current public health situation and the impact of Coronavirus on companies (e.g. self-isolating), Companies House is now automatically granting a two month extension to file company accounts.

Companies House advise that companies should act before the filing deadline.

The law presently gives a three month extension, but normally it is Companies House policy to not allow extensions unless there are extreme circumstances. Due to the Coronavirus, Companies House has changed their policy to automatically allow for a two month extension and then another month after that if companies can demonstrate extreme circumstances.

If you are coming up to your company filing deadline (generally 9 months after the end of your accounting period) and would like to take advantage of this extension please get in touch.
