Important: The Annual Return is not to be confused with Annual Accounts. Annual Accounts are financial accounts, profit & loss etc. Both, however, are legally required to be filed to Companies House on an annual basis. If you are unsure which is due please contact us and we can check for you.

Annual Return FAQs

What is an Annual Return?

An annual return is a snapshot of general information about a company's directors, secretary (where one has been appointed), registered office address, shareholders and share capital.

How often must an Annual Return be filed?

Every company must file an Annual Return to Companies House at least once every 12 months. The window for filing the Return must be within 28 days after the anniversary of incorporation or of the made-up date of the last Annual Return.

What details do I need to file my own Annual Return (DIY)?

You will need the following details to file your Annual Return:

  • Principal Business Activity (if you have not already specified this in a previous return) – we will provide a list for you to choose from.
  • Details of any changes to your shareholders (transfers, issue of shares etc)
  • That’s it. Our system does the rest!

What details do Company Formation MadeSimple need to file my Annual Return (Service)?

In most cases we can prepare your return without requesting any information from you. In rare cases we may require additional information, in which case we would email you. If you have transferred or issued shares during the year you would need to let us know.

Can I purchase the Service or DIY if I did not form my company through Company Formation MadeSimple?

Yes, you will first need to import your company onto our system which is a very easy process. The import is located on your dashboard, once you are logged in. You will need your company number and web filing authentication code. The Authentication Code is sent to the company's registered office address. You can reorder it if you do not have it.

How does the Annual Return Service and Annual Return Express Service work?

We’ll prepare your Annual Return in accordance with the due date, unless you purchase the Express Service in which case we’ll prepare it within 24 hours*. Once prepared we will email you and request that you review the prepared Return. If you happy with the Return you can accept it - it will then be filed with Companies House. If a change needs to be made, simply reject the Return and let us know what needs changing. We will then make the requested change and ask that you review it again. *Please see our General Terms and Conditions.
