More time to file accounts and other information

On 25 June 2020, the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 received royal assent.

Some of the measures in the Act came into effect immediately on Friday 26 June. Other measures came into effect on Saturday 27 June when the secondary legislation came into force.

The measures introduced by the Act will relieve the burden on businesses during the coronavirus outbreak and allow them to focus all their efforts on continuing to operate.

Companies and other types of business registered at Companies House will get more time to file accounts and other information.

For our clients, we are in the process of updating all deadlines on Companies House service. We will update client filing deadlines automatically so you do not need to apply for an extension.

If you have any questions please do get in touch with Linder Whitmarsh.
