Dormant Accounts

What Are Dormant Accounts?

Every company must file a set of accounts at Companies House every 12 months. Your first set of accounts must be filed within 21 months of the date of incorporation.

If the company has traded then a full set of accounts must be filed. A limited company is said to be dormant if it’s had no significant accounting transactions since it's incorporation, or since the last set of accounts were filed. Dormant accounts are accounts that can only be filed by companies that are exempt from audit (ie. a dormant company).

Why Do I Need To File Dormant Accounts?

All limited companies must file a set of accounts to keep them alive on Companies House register. These must be filed on time to keep companies house from handing you a hefty fine for being late.

If your company hasn't traded, we can file your dormant company accounts for you and save you from unneccessary fines and expensive accountancy costs.

If you formed the company through us all we need is the name of the company. If you formed the company elsewhere then we just need a few extra details from you. This includes:

  • Company Name
  • Company Number
  • Authentication Code 
  • Share Capital 
  • Name of One Director
