UK Companies Act 2006

The UK Companies Act 2006 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom which regulates companies incorporated under UK Company Law.

UK Registry Filing Requirements

Under section 444 of the Companies Act 2006 the directors of a company must deliver to the registrar for each financial year the accounts and reports.

Every UK company, including dormant and non trading companies, must file a confirmation statement annually which confirms the information Companies House holds about your company is up to date. You must file a confirmation statement at least once a year but,  you may choose to file more often.

The Gazette

The Gazette consists largely of statutory notices. Many notices that are placed in the Gazette are statutory and required by law, and many others are published because it is deemed to be in the public interest that the information they contain be made available in the public domain. The Company Law Supplement is published weekly and details information notified by the Registrar of Companies including UK companies struck off, company restorations and company name changes.

Overseas Entity Register

Any overseas company owning UK real estate must by the 31 January 2023 have submitted its beneficial ownership information through a Companies House appointed UK Regulated Agent.

We are an approved Companies House UK Regulated Agent and can complete your Overseas Entity Registration.

We have the Companies House agent assurance code for registering overseas entities and can carry out the verification checks.

Even though the deadline to register on the Overseas Entity Register has now passed those entities that have failed to file need to act fast to rectify the situation and mitigate the financial and criminal sanctions that they will now face
