Get information about a British company

You can get information about a British company from Companies House. The Companies House is the Registrar of companies in the United Kingdom. They are an executive agency sponsored by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.

Generally, all UK companies must deliver their company accounts and confirmation statements with Companies House every year and you can get this information for free from Companies House.

If you are currently based overseas and trading using a UK limited company, you may submit your company accounts and confirmation statement using the Companies House web filing service, you would require your company’s authentication code to file online. Contact our accountants if you have any questions.

Companies House opening times

Generally, Companies House opening times vary from office to office across the United Kingdom. Currently, Companies House has offices in Cardiff, Belfast, Edinburgh and in London in the UK.

Every Companies House office has an information centre for the public to search for company information. Additionally, you can also incorporate a new company and submit your company’s documents by hand at these offices.

Overseas-based customers

It is useful to know Companies House opening times especially if you live outside the UK. For example, Singapore is 8 hours ahead of London. To call Companies House from Singapore, say, at 8.30 am you must wait till 4.30 pm in Singapore’s time.

If you have any questions about new company incorporation, your confirmation statement and UK company accounts, feel free to contact Companies House.

Need more time to submit your company accounts

If you need more time to submit your company accounts with Companies House. You must contact Companies House as soon as possible.

There are two main reasons why you must do so when you foresee you are unable to submit your company account on time.

  1. To avoid the expensive late filing penalty, up to £1500 for a private company and up to £7500 for a public limited company.
  2. Companies House may strike off your company and your accounts are overdue for a long time.

Events outside your control

If the reasons you are unable to submit your company accounts are because an event outside of your control prevents you to do so, do contact Companies House immediately.

An example of this kind of event would be fire has destroyed your company records a week before your account filing deadline.

On the other hand, If your reason for not able to submit your company accounts is due to your accountant is ill. You stand a very low chance to get an extension.

There are two ways to apply to the extension of more time to submit your company accounts. You can do this online or by post.
