Annual Returns are a statutory requirement of all Limited Companies. This service is included in our Fixed Monthly Packages, from £30 per month.

Annual Returns Services

The Annual Return is essentially a snapshot of your company as at a specific date. Every year, regardless of whether you are trading or not, you must file an Annual Return at Companies House. If you are late in filing, you can be penalised.

A Limited Company Annual Return will be an update and confirmation of the following details:

  • the company’s directors
  • the company secretary
  • the registered office
  • the company’s principal business activities
  • the issued share capital and shareholders
  • where the company’s records are kept.
