I’m surprised that more businesses do not take full advantage of Companies House online filing service. Whilst many accountants file accounts online on their clients’ behalf, organisations need to file an additional Confirmation Statement each year and this can be done more easily and at a reduced charge using the Companies House online service, which also generates email reminders for future filings.

The Confirmation Statement provides a snapshot of the company’s share capital, directors and registered office details. Filing this information online lowers costs, reduces the risk of late filing penalties (up to £1,000 after six months) and means your business is correctly documented, giving confidence to other parties in the event of any future merger or sale activity.
