When do I need to file an annual return?


Hello to you

Please advise: when exactly is it that I am going to be expected to file my new company’s annual return? Is the date always the same for everybody, or is it different?





You need to send an annual return to Companies House at least once every 12 months. The filing deadline is 28 days after:

  • The anniversary of company formation, or
  • The anniversary of the date you filed your last annual

You can complete and file it online or you can download form AR01 and send it by post. It costs £13 to file online or £40 to send by post.
