If you run a limited company and are registered on the public domain at Companies House, you are required to file a confirmation statement (previously an annual return) every year as part of the Companies House annual return filings.
The confirmation statement generally checks whether the information that Companies House has about your company is correct every year. To prepare for the confirmation statement, you will need:
The details of your registered office address,
Your statement of capital and shareholder information,
Your SIC code (the number that identifies what your company does),
Details of People with Significant Control (PSC).
The confirmation statement is not the service you need to report changes to your company; you must file those changes separately.
How We Can Help with Your Annual Returns
Although filing a confirmation statement is not necessarily a complicated task, if it’s not completed you can be fined up to £5,000 and your company may be struck off.
Running a business can come with a lot of deadlines and hassles. With the existing stress of running a company, some clients may need our help to keep things running smoothly. You may find it beneficial to outsource the task of filing your Companies House annual return. Perhaps you’re less interested in remembering yet another authentication code, password and deadline. To help take the weight off your shoulders, we can prepare and complete your company’s confirmation statement for a notional fee of £50pa.
At striveX we recognise that everyone may need a little help at times. At no added cost we can offer support for our clients who are preparing to complete the annual return by themselves. We also offer a wide range of other services for business owners who may be struggling to keep up.
Convenience and care are our core strengths. By focusing our services around these principles we have developed long lasting relationships with our clients. See below for how.
We want our clients to have choice and so we use all the major accounting packages to help them work with the best solution for their business.
We want our clients to be stress free, so we meet at their premises, respond promptly to queries and accept calls out of normal working hours.
We want our clients to receive a technical service, so all our work is signed off by either a qualified accountant, chartered tax adviser or tax specialist.
Most importantly, we take interest in our clients as we love what we do. We encourage regular and open discussions to avoid focusing on standard compliance and spend more time discussing development of their businesses.
