Completion of Annual Return

It is a legal requirement for all companies to prepare and submit their annual statutory accounts.

Another legal requirement for UK companies is that they submit an annual return each year. This document provides certain details about a company including information on its directors, secretary and shareholders. In addition, the annual return will note the current registered office address.

Every company director and secretary has a personal responsibility to ensure that all statutory documents are delivered to the Registrar as and when required by the Companies Act. Failure to deliver documents on time is a criminal offence. On conviction, a director or secretary could end up with a criminal record and a fine of up to £5,000 for each offence.

For all Registered Office clients, we assist the directors by preparing the Annual Return ready for the director's signature and onward submission to Companies House, ensuring that their personal responsibility in this matter is fulfilled.
