Companies House announce 3-month extension available for businesses unable to file their accounts due to COVID-19

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy has introduced a 3-month extension available for businesses unable to file their accounts due to COVID-19. This initiative brought in by the government and Companies House will enable businesses to concentrate on putting a contingency plan in place. All 4.3 million (approximately) businesses registered on Companies House must submit their accounts and reports annually.

How to apply for this extension

Depending on what sector your business operates in you may be granted an extension immediately without applying if you are directly affected by the issues surrounding COVID-19. If not there is no need to worry as you can apply online which will take around 15 minutes to complete.
