Annual Confirmation Statement for LTD Company in UK
it’s an annual filing obligation for all UK companies, whether trading or dormant, and for LLPs. In the same way as its predecessor, it ensures that – at least once a year – the public record maintained by Companies House is correct for a company.
The new Companies House confirmation statement, which replaced the annual return, was introduced from 30 June 2016 as part of a range of reforms. The Confirmation Statement in the UK (form CS01) was previously known as the Annual Return (form AR01) – but it also captures other data that must be filed. It is a report containing accurate and up-to-date information about a limited company on a certain date. It is also a requirement for LLP’s (limited liability partnerships) to submit a Confirmation Statement to Companies House. The statements must be submitted at least once, every 12 months.

What does “Person with Significant Control” mean?
An individual who has significant control or influence over a company can be a person or legal entity, such as another company or firm. More than one entry could qualify for this.
What is filing deadline of the confirmation statement?
Confirmation statements are due within 28 days of the anniversary of company formation, or within 28 days of the anniversary of the previous confirmation statement. The ‘made-up date’, is the date the confirmation statement is accurate containing the information above.
What are the impact if I don't file this confirmation statement?
It is a criminal offence if you simply fail to deliver a confirmation statement at all – your company could be prosecuted, the director could be held personally liable and removed from office and, in severe cases, your company could be struck off the register.
Can we file this confirmation statement before due date?
You can file a confirmation statement any time before its due date, provided the information is accurate and up to date at the made-up date provided. Companies will sometimes file an early return if there has been any changes to their company details, they wish to report to Companies House.
Who is primarily responsible to submit this?
Company directors are responsible for completing and submitting accurate confirmation statements on time to Companies House. While the director is still ultimately legally responsible for the competing of the confirmation statement, our appointment as company secretary to the UK company means we handle this requirement, and present to the director(s) for signing.
We did mistake in one submission, can we correct this?
A minimum of one confirmation statement must be delivered to Companies House every 12 months given at specific dates. Companies House will communicate with you when this is due. You can file as many confirmation statements as you need, but you must have at least 24 hours in between each one or revised statement.
What are new new additions that must be included as part of the confirmation statement ?
From 6 April 2016, almost all companies and LLPs should have set up and started to maintain a Register of People with Significant Control. A company already in existence must include PSC details in their first confirmation statement from 30 June 2016
