What is a Companies House Annual Return?

An annual return (as opposed to annual financial statements) is a return submitted to Companies House annually, by all limited companies, confirming the details of the key stakeholders in the business.

When is the return due?

The due date is usually a year after either the:

  • incorporation of your company
  • date you filed your last annual return
  • You have 28 days after the deadline to send in your annual return.

    What does an annual return include?

    Your annual return must include:

    • details of the directors and company secretary, if it has one
    • what your company does – including its standard industrial classification (SIC) codes
    • the type of company it is, eg private or public
    • the registered company address
    • the ‘single alternative inspection location’ (SAIL) – the address where records are kept if not at the registered address

    You may also need to include:

    • a ‘statement of capital’ if your company has shares
    • details of shareholders, if required and depending how long since you last reported on them

    What will we need from you to be able to file on your behalf?

    We shall need confirmation of all the information above (the responsibility for reporting the correct information is the responsibility of the directors of the company) and also the following:

    • Your Company House log in details (User ID and authentication code)
