Company filing requirements

The government is consulting on proposals to remove duplication, simplify filing requirements and reduce burdens on companies when filing information with Companies House while also seeking to address known issues with information on the register.

A key proposal is the suggested removal of the requirement to complete a mandatory annual return. At present every company must submit an annual return. Under the proposed plans, they could instead digitally confirm each year that the information held by Companies House is correct or update it as and when it changes.
