Every limited company has to send a confirmation statement to Companies House each year. This is an official form, stating that the information that Companies House holds on the company, is correct. If there are changes, the form is used to update the company’s record.
There is only a two week window for getting the confirmation form in, and paying the necessary fee. Failing to get the statement in on time is a criminal offence. That’s why so many companies use our services to ensure that the form is filed correctly and within the relevant period. We include the filing costs charged by Companies House in our general services fee.
