1. What are dormant company accounts?

Dormant Company Accounts refer to the financial statements of a company that has had no financial transactions during the accounting period. It is a simplified form of financial reporting required by Companies House for companies that are not actively trading.

2. Who needs to file it?

Companies that have not engaged in any significant financial activities, such as trading, sales, or acquiring assets, during the accounting period may be eligible to file. This typically applies to companies that are temporarily inactive or have not yet commenced trading.

3. What is the purpose of filing inactive accounts?

It is a legal requirement for companies that meet the criteria for being suspended or struck-off. It provides transparency to authorities and stakeholders by confirming that the company has had no substantial financial activities during the reporting period.

4. Are dormant accounts different from a confirmation statement?

Yes, dormant accounts focus on financial information and are an annual submission to detail the company's financial inactivity. A confirmation statement, on the other hand, provides general company information and must also be filed annually with Companies House.

5. Can a company with trading history file?

If your company has been actively trading at any point during the accounting period, it may not qualify. Instead, you would need to file regular annual abridged accounts that reflect the company's financial activities.

6. What is the deadline for filing?

The non-trading accounts must be filed with Companies House within 9 months of the end of the company's financial year. It's important to ensure timely submission to avoid any potential penalties.

7. Can I prepare and file myself?

Yes, you can prepare and file inactive accounts on your own. However, the process may involve understanding specific accounting principles and Companies House requirements. Many businesses choose to seek professional assistance to ensure accuracy and compliance.

8. What are the consequences of not filing?

Failure to file by the deadline can result in penalties from Companies House. These penalties can increase over time, so it's crucial to meet the filing requirements to avoid unnecessary financial consequences.

9. What does your service include?

Our service encompasses the thorough preparation and accurate filing of your dormant accounts to Companies House. We handle the paperwork and ensure compliance digitally, allowing you to focus on other aspects of your business.
