It is a statutory requirement for all UK companies to file an annual return each year. This is
normally on the anniversary of the date of incorporation and records any changes during the year.
The annual return is a summary of the following:
- Address of the registered office
- Address where the statutory records are held (if not at the registered office)
- Appointments, resignations or change in details of the secretary and directors
- Shareholders details
- Share capital
- SIC code (Standard Industrial Classification)
An annual return must be filed within 28 days of the anniversary of incorporation or of the
anniversary of the last annual return. If a company fails to file an annual return by the due date,
the company and its directors can be prosecuted and the company dissolved.
If you wish to instruct us, we can advise you before the due date that your annual return is due
and obtain the necessary information for its completion and ensure it is filed by the due date.
