Confirmation Statement - previously the Annual Return

Every UK company must deliver a Confirmation Statement to Companies House every year, stating the basic details of directors, share capital and people with significant control (PSC). 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:

  • Company Name
  • Registered number
  • Date to which the statement is made-up
  • Principal business activities of the company
  • Type of company it is, for example, private or public
  • Registered office address of the company
  • Address (single alternate inspection location - SAIL) where the company keeps certain company records if not at the registered office
  • Details of the company secretary
  • Details of all the company's directors
  • Details of the people with significant control

We must complete a statement of capital as part of your Confirmation Statement, this includes the following:

  • Total number of shares of that class; and
  • Aggregate nominal value of shares of that class, and
  • Amount paid up and the amount unpaid on each share
