Confirmation Statement

from £34 + VAT

All Limited Companies (Ltd.) and Limited Liability Partnerships (LLP) must send a Confirmation Statement (formerly known as an Annual Return) to Companies House once every 12 months, even if the company or partnership is dormant.

A confirmation statement gives Companies House your company’s up-to-date Registered Office Address, SIC codes, Share Capital, Officers, Shareholders and Person/s with Significant Control (PSC).

Even if nothing has changed you must still check your company’s details and verify that they are all still correct. The Confirmation Statement is not to be confused with the Annual Accounts. Annual accounts are financial accounts, showing profit and loss etc. Both, however, are legally required to be filed with Companies House on an annual basis.

What Information Can and Cannot be Updated using a Confirmation Statement?

A confirmation statement can be used to update the following information at Companies House:

  • SIC codes (principal business activities);
  • Shareholder changes that have occurred since the last confirmation statement;
  • Changes to the statement of capital since the filing of the last confirmation statement.

Changes to the registered office address, PSCs and company officers, however, cannot be notified via a confirmation statement and instead must be reported using the relevant forms. A Confirmation Statement can confirm these details, as its name implies, but notifications of actual changes to them between one Confirmation Statement and the next must be submitted using the appropriate forms.
