WebFiling now allows companies to file their accounts online, including unaudited abbreviated and dormant company accounts, which are the most commonly filed accounts at Companies House. WebFiling also provides free downloadable document templates with built-in checks to ensure all key information is included and that the balance sheet is accurate.
Companies can use WebFiling to amend their registered office address and directors and secretaries' details, as well as register their annual return. To access the service, companies need their company key and must be registered with Companies House using their own email address.
It is the responsibility of company directors and secretaries to file their annual return within 28 days of the made-up date. Failure to do so is a criminal offence and can result in penalties of up to £5,000. If a company is late filing its annual return, it may be struck off and face criminal charges.
Upon formation of a company, a hard bound copy of corporate documents, including the certificate of incorporation, memorandum and articles of association, minutes of the first meeting of directors, share certificates, and company register, will be posted to the company along with its online filing key. However, the key cannot be sent via email for security reasons.
You can tailor the company formation packages below almost anyway you want. Get in touch with us today to start the registration of your UK company.
