Companies House warn of delays in postal submissions

by David Edmonds

Company filing deadlines were extended for companies with filing deadlines between 27 June 2020 and 5 April 2021. 

Companies House is warning of delays in postal submissions and have said it is taking much longer than usual to process paper documents, forms and letters sent by post. Accounts filed on paper need to be manually checked and Companies House currently have reduced staff numbers in their offices to maintain social distancing.

Companies House is therefore encouraging companies and their advisers to switch to filing online.

Failing to submit company accounts is a criminal offence. In addition, there is an automatic civil penalty for submitting accounts late.
