What is a confirmation statement (CS01)?

I have been sent a letter telling me I need to submit my confirmation statement and I don’t know what this is.

1st June 2019

A company needs to file a confirmation statement to Companies House every year and it costs £13 to file the form online or £40 if you have to file a paper statement.

If you need to file an amended statement there will be no further charge, you only pay the fee once a year.

Your first confirmation statement will be due a year from incorporation and then annually thereafter or 12 months from any amended statements filed.  You have 14 days to file the statement from the due date.

The confirmation statement shows general information about the company such as company directors, secretary, registered office address, shareholders, share capital and people with significant control.

You must file a confirmation statement even if the company is dormant.

If you require any assistance with confirmation statements or any other company matter please give us a call and a arrange a meeting today.
