A confirmation statement is a review of the following;
- General information about the company's directors and secretary (if there is any)
- Registered office address
- Share capital
- Other significant people (PSC) in charge of the company
A confirmation statement is legally required to be filed to Companies House once a year. Every company needs to send CSO1 to Companies House to verify the company's information, including Dormant Companies. However, it shouldn't be confused with Annual Accounts, as annual accounts present the financial activities, profits, and assets of your company.
You are also obliged to file your confirmation statement to Companies House when there are any major changes, covering one of the segments above, for instance, an amendment about the company's name or its registered office address.
- You can be fined,
- Your company might be struck off the register,
- Your credit ratings may be affected.
As per Companies House rules, non-filing of the confirmation statement is a criminal offence. Please click here to know more details.
