Companies House Update August

Published by on

A few updates from Companies House for your attention.

Resuming compulsory strike-off (non-compliant route)

In April, Companies House introduced temporary measures to support businesses during the coronavirus outbreak. The changes primarily affected the strike-off and late filing penalties processes. They have previously informed us that the voluntary strike-off process will resume on 10 September and from 10 October,they will be resuming action to strike off and dissolve companies through the compulsory strike off route. For companies which are late filing their accounts and/ or confirmation statement, they will continue to send two requesting such throughout the pausing of the strike off process. From 10 October, if the company has still not filed the relevant documentation, further strike-off action will be taken including the publishing of Gazette notices as per normal procedure. Further information can be found at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/companies-house-to-resume-the-compulsory-strike-off-process

Companies House will continue to review the other easements introduced on a monthly basis and we will endeavour to communicate any changes before they happen.
