Confirmation Statement

Previously known as the Annual Return

A confirmation statement is a snapshot of general information about a company's directors, secretary (where one has been appointed), registered office address, shareholders, share capital and people with significant control.

Important: The Confirmation Statement 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.

Confirmation Statement FAQs

What is a Confirmation Statement?

A confirmation statement is a snapshot of general information about a company's directors, secretary (where one has been appointed), registered office address, shareholders, share capital and people with significant control. The confirmation statement was previously known as the annual return (the name changed on 30 June 2016).

How often must a Confirmation Statement be filed?

Every company must file a confirmation statement to Companies House at least once every 12 months. The window for filing the confirmation statement must be within 14 days after the anniversary of incorporation or of the made-up date of the last confirmation statement.

What details do I need to file my own Confirmation Statement (DIY)?

You will need the following details to file your confirmation statement:

  • 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!

Are share transfers included in the Confirmation Statement?

Share transfers for the year are recorded in the Confirmation Statement. We will be able to update the Confirmation Statement in respect of the share transfer/s taking place upon your instruction. The limit for the recording of shareholder changes in an application with this service is 3.

What details do Company Formation MadeSimple need to file my Confirmation Statement (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 Confirmation Statement Service and Confirmation Statement Express Service work?

We’ll prepare your Confirmation Statement 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 Confirmation Statement you can accept it - it will then be filed with Companies House. If a change needs to be made, simply reject the Confirmation Statement 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.
