The following Corporate Q&A provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
On 26 March 2021 Companies House announced that the automatic filing extensions granted by the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act (CIGA) 2020 for filing deadlines between 27 June 2020 and 5 April 2021, to relieve the burden on companies during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, will come to an end for filing deadlines that fall after 5 April 2021. For confirmation statement filings, accounts filings and event-driven filings after 5 April 2021, there will be no further automatic extensions and any deadlines that fall after this date will go back to normal. For mortgage charges, while those with an interest in the charge created up to and including 4 April 2021 will continue to receive an automatic extension of ten additional days to file the particulars of a charge, those with an interest in the charge created after 4 April 2021 will need to file within 21 days as normal.
Companies that are eligible and cite coronavirus issues in their application can still apply for a three-month extension for accounts filing deadlines that fall after 5 April 2021. However, given that the law only allows a maximum filing period of 12 months, companies that have already had their accounts deadline extended may not be eligible.
