Confirmation Statement and Secretarial Services

What is a confirmation statement?

A Confirmation statement is a review of followings;

  • General information about the company's directors and secretary (if there is any)
  • Registered office address
  • Shareholders
  • Share capital
  • Other significant people (PSC) in charge of the company

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 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.

Person with Significant Control (PSC)

According to Companies House's official record as of June 2016, a person with significant control (PSC) is "the person who own or control companies including their name, month and year of birth, nationality, and details of their interest in the company. From 30 June 2016, UK companies (except listed companies) and limited liability partnerships (LLPs) need to declare this information when issuing their annual confirmation statement to Companies House."

In other words, a person with significant control is someone who holds at least 25% of shares or voting rights of the company.

Companies House entailed PSC registration to make UK companies more transparent over the ownership of businesses and to inform investors about their prospective investee. Our experts are here to help you for identifying your PSC to Companies House to avoid any bad impression and misinformation regarding your company on Companies House.
