Post-formation service for your UK establishment: once you have set up your UK establishment, you will need to meet a range of ongoing legal obligations. At Coddan Formations Agency, we offer a variety of post-formation services that can help you to avoid falling foul of the law.
In most cases, you will be required to send annual accounts, detailing your financial activity and annual returns, and reporting key company details to Companies House. The documents you will need to deliver will depend on:
- Whether your limited company is required to prepare and disclose accounting documents under parent law (the law of the country in which your company is registered).
- Whether your private company is governed by the law of a country or territory in the European Economic Area (EEA).
If you need to prepare and disclose accounts and returns to Companies House, you must do so by the due date. Failure to file with Companies House is a serious offence, which can result in you being fined in the criminal courts and/or struck off the Companies House public record.
In addition to sending annual accounts and returns to Companies House, you may also need to deliver annual accounts and tax and VAT returns to HMRC. We can assist you with the filing process by preparing your annual accounts and returns and delivering them to Companies House and HMRC on your behalf, ensuring that your limited company remains on the right side of the law.
After registration, you must also notify Companies House of any changes to the original information delivered for registration, for example, changes to your registered office address or company constitution, within 21 days of making any alterations. The quickest and easiest way to notify Companies House about these changes is via our post-formation service for UK establishments. We will send your new details to Companies House via electronic means and they will take effect as soon as they have received them.
