Confirmation Statements (formerly Annual Returns)
If you are a limited company, you are required to check the information that Companies House holds on your company once a year. This is called a ‘confirmation statement’. The confirmation statement has replaced the annual return to Companies House. This is different from your company’s annual accounts and tax return.
You will be notified when your confirmation statement is due. We will ask you to check your information on the Companies House register is correct and file the confirmation statement on-time. We will also notify Companies House of any changes to your confirmation statement – this is filed separately.
