Companies House have announced that businesses affected by COVID-19 will be able to apply for a deadline extension for filing their accounts.
‘If, immediately before the filing deadline, it becomes apparent that accounts will not be filed on time due to your company being affected by Coronavirus (COVID-19), you may make an application to extend the period allowed for filing.”
If you do not apply for an extension and your accounts are filed late, a penalty will automatically be given. Appeals will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
