Coronavirus: Companies House advice on filing deadlines

19 March 2020

Due to the current public health situation and the impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) on companies (e.g. self-isolating), Companies House may grant those who apply, an extension to file company accounts.

If it becomes apparent immediately before the filing deadline that accounts will not be filed on time due to companies being affected by Coronavirus (COVID-19), companies may make an application to extend the period allowed for filing.
Companies House advise that companies should act before the filing deadline.
The law presently gives a three month extension, but normally it is Companies House policy to not allow extensions unless there are extreme circumstances.
