Wrongful uses of dormant company paperwork is something that we come across frequently. As with a private company that is actively trading, the accounts and return of a non-trading company must be filed annually at Companies House. If you do not file your tax return within a given date, you will be subject to the standard penalty for a late return.
When the paperwork is filed at Companies House, it's also essential that the right forms are filled in. Companies limited by shares that have been dormant since incorporation will require different forms to companies that have become dormant.
