It is essential that you keep your company’s statutory records up-to-date. Do not underestimate the importance of these records – they are definitive proof of the company’s legal existence and its members, and include:
A company’s accounts and confirmation statement must be filed annually with the Registrar of Companies. Non-compliance will render the company liable to dissolution with liabilities subsequent to the dissolution being the responsibility of the directors.
Confirmation statements must be filed with Companies House. This replaces the annual return.
The Companies Act provides for the Registrar of Companies to charge penalties and fines:
As part of our service to client companies, we undertake on receipt of written instructions to keep the company’s statutory records up-to-date and forward the composite return to the company for approval before submitting them to the Registrar of Companies.
A Limited Company is a separate business entity that has been incorporated at Companies House as a legal person.
