The filing of a confirmation statement with Companies House is an important part of running a private company. The return provides an up to date picture of the company and includes a range of details including the names and addresses of the directors, the distribution and ownership of shares, and how the limited company is organised.
The confirmation statement has to be filed every year within 28 days of the anniversary of the company's incorporation. It is important to remember that failing to file your return on time is a criminal offence that can lead to heavy fines, loss of your company, or even prosecution. So it is vital to make sure that you meet the filing deadline.
