From 25 March 2020, businesses will be able to apply for a 3-month extension for filing their accounts during the COVID-19 emergency.
This joint initiative between the Government and Companies House will mean businesses can prioritise managing the impact of Coronavirus.
As part of the agreed measures, companies will still have to apply for the 3-month extension to be granted. However, those citing issues around COVID-19 will be automatically and immediately granted an extension. Applications are made through a fast-tracked online system which will take just 15 minutes to complete.
You can apply for an extension here:
You will need the following information to complete this:
- the company number
- an email address
- information about your extension reasons
- any documents that support your application (optional)
Please contact us if you require any help with this.
