It’s been announced that companies can apply for a three month extension for filing accounts.
More information on how to apply can be found at:
Please note that the extension needs to be applied for and is NOT automatic. If you do not apply and are late filing your accounts at Companies House then you will receive a fine.
This is a Companies House extension only and does not apply to Corporation Tax Returns or any HMRC filing needed.
We await financial support measures for the self employed still to be announced by the Chancellor.
So we share this news whilst urging caution that up to date accounts & records may be needed to apply for any financial support yet to be announced.
The best advice we can give is to make sure that you’re bookkeeping and accounting are up to date so that you, and your accountant, can swing into action as soon as needed to secure any financial support that may become available.
