What happens if my company accounts are filed late at Companies House?

Limited companies have 9 months from the end of their accounting period to file their accounts with Companies House.

If you’re a director of a company, you are personally responsible for ensuring that the accounts are filed on time.


If your accounts are filed late, they will incur a penalty

Not more than 1 month £150

More than 1 month but less than 3 months £375

More than 3 months but less than 6 months £750

More than 6 months £1,500

If you file your accounts late for two years in a row, the penalty will be doubled.

Preparing accounts for a limited company takes time, if you’re not currently working with an accountant to prepare and file your company accounts you should do so as early as possible.
