Companies Act 2006 - New filing deadlines and late filing penalties
On 1 February 2009, further elements of the Companies Act 2006 regarding filing deadlines and late filing penalties came into effect which will be of interest to charitable companies and their trading subsidiaries. The changes are as follows:
1) For private limited companies, including all Charitable companies the
deadline for filing accounts at Companies House has been reduced to nine months from ten months for all accounting periods beginning on or after 6th April 2008.
2) The new filing penalties apply to all accounts that have been delivered late and are as follows:
Not more than one month £150
More than one month but less than three months £375
More than three months but less than six months £750
More than six months £1,500
Please note that where a company fails to meet the deadline for a second year after the year ending 5 April 2009, the penalty will be double to that shown above.
