Filing the Annual Return

Confirmation StatementEvery year a UK company has to file documents with Companies House. One form is the Confirmation Statement (Form CS01) which has replaced the Annual Return (Form AR01). The new form has been reduced from several pages long to minimise the administration for company directors. Typically you need to confirm the following information held at Companies House is correct-

Company name and number
Type of company
Registered office address
Location of company registers
Company Directors
Company Secretary
Share holders
Persons of Significant Control (PSC)
Value and Number of Shares Issued
The rights attached to the shares
SIC Code describing the principal business activities

The form can be processed manually by post at Companies House or online using the web filing service. We would recommend that where possible the Confirmation statement is submitted online. This ensures the document is submitted correctly and also provides a quick confirmation that the form has been accepted or rejected. Postal applications often experience delays and lead to incorrect completed forms.

Our Confirmation Statement filing service will ensure your form is submitted correctly and quickly. Once we have your web filing code and confirmed your company details one of our compliance team will submit the form online and monitor the acceptance by Companies House.

Failure to submit your Confirmation Statement could lead to your company being dissolved and 'struck off' the register.
