Account filing requirements for UK limited companies

Your first accounts

If your company's first accounts cover a period of more than 12 months, you must deliver them to companies house within 21 months of the date of incorporation for private companies and within 18 months for public companies, or 3 months from  the accounting reference date, which ever is the longer.


Subsequent accounts

In subsequent years a private limited company has 9 months from the end of the accounting reference period in which to deliver its accounts. A public company has 6 months. However if you change the accounting reference period the filing time may be reduced. If you are a director of the company you are personally responsible for ensuring you deliver your accounts before the time allowed runs out. Delivery means actual receipt at companies house in the correct format. If accounts are late a penalty is automatically imposed.


Credit reference agencies

As well has receiving financial penalties for the late filing of accounts, these companies will in most cases zero rated by online credit reference agencies. This will be because the financial information will be deemed to old and unreliable.
