Why You Should File Your Annual Return

What is an annual return ?

Every company must file an annual return at Companies House at least once every 12 months. An annual return is a snapshot of the basic information about a company's directors and it's registered office address, shareholders and share capital on a particular date. The company's director and the secretary, are responsible for making sure that the annual return is filed at Companies House.

When should it be filed ?

This must be filed within 28 days of the company's first anniversary of incorporation and on the same date each year from then onwards.

Don't lose your company or get caught with a hefty fine just for the sake of not filing your annual return. Getting it wrong or filing it late will lead to severe problems. Let us take the pressure away from you. We can complete and file your annual return on your behalf so that you can carry on with the day to day running of your company. Even if you formed your company elsewhere - shame on you - we can still complete the filing for you.

Failure to file this form on time will result in a hefty fine and even removal of the company from the register and then the loss of limited liability status.

How Paramount can help

To enable your company to keep in line with companies house's regulations we can file your annual return for you. We file this electronically online. If you formed the company through us all we need is the name of the company and it's online filing code. If you formed your company elsewhere then we need the Company name, company number and online filing code. If your company does not have an online filing code we can obtain this for you,  which would then allow us to file the annual return electronically.
