Every UK company must deliver an annual return to Companies House every year, stating the basic details of members, share capital and company officials. As these details often do not change from year to year; this statement is called a Confirmation Statement.
We will send you reminders as your company's Confirmation Statement deadline approaches, so you'll not worry about it being overdue.
If you miss the filing date, the company and its directors can be prosecuted and the company dissolved.
We electronically submit your Confirmation Statement to Companies House, the form contains the following information:
We must complete a statement of capital as part of your Annual Return,this includes the following:
For each class of shares:
Details of the Directors, are maintained by us, as part of our due diligence work.
For individuals who are directors or secretaries
An increasing number of companies compile accounts and issue shares in currencies other than Sterling and the details needing to be lodged are the same as for sterling shares.
A full list of shareholders on the date of the return is recommended, and is required for the first annual return the company has to complete and every third annual return thereafter.
The name of every shareholder and the date of the share transfer is needed.
When the full list is included in the annual return, you must state the names of all past and present shareholders, the dates on which they held shares and the details of any transfer.
This section is increasingly important; as shareholders who are resident in countries other than the UK often need to disclose their foreign shareholders in their personal tax returns.
