Dormant Private Company Formation & Annual Filing Requirements

Dormant company annual filing requirements

 

Dormant private company annual filing requirements: a dormant company is a registered private company that has no financial transactions, other than the issue of share capital on incorporation. Due to the lack of financial transactions, it is easy to assume that a dormant company has no annual filing requirements. However, its filing requirements are not dissimilar to those of trading entities. The main filing requirements for non-trading companies are as follows: -

Dormant company annual returns

All UK companies, including dormant companies, must file a confirmation statement with Companies House.  It equests the following information: -

  • The company's name and number
  • Details of the company's structure
  • The date the annual return is made up to
  • The company's registered office address
  • The location of the company's registers
  • Details of the company's directors
  • Details of the company's secretary
  • Details of the company's shareholders
  • The value and number of shares the company has issued and the rights attached to them
  • Details of the company's principal business activities

The form can be completed by hand and sent to Companies House or it can be completed online using our services.

Dormant company annual accounts

All UK companies, including dormant private companies, are required to file a set of annual accounts with Companies House. The annual account form deals with a private company's annual accounts and requests the following information:

  • A balance sheet confirming that your company was dormant for the accounting period
  • Details of figures from previous accounting years

The form can be completed by hand and sent to Companies House or it can be completed on-line using the Coddan service.
